Variags of Khand
Variag by John Howe
The Variags were a group of men from Khand who, under the service of Sauron, launched several attacks on Minas Tirith during the days of the Kings. In the War of the Ring, the Variags fought in the Battle of Pelennor Fields and in the Battle at the Black Gate. They retreated to Khand after the loss of Sauron.
