The Necromancer of Dol Guldur is a minifigure from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug set that was released in 2013.


The minifigure is black, but has some greenish hue on the chest, showing clearly muscle mass and abs. His face is also partially painted green (the face resembles a skull), with black, blank eyes and a black mouth that appears to be screaming or roaring in a menacing way.


After Sauron was destroyed in the Second Age, his spirit fled Mordor and took refuge in one of Mordor's ruined strongholds, Dol Guldur, in southern Mirkwood. There, and accompanied by one of his deadliest servants, the Witch-King of Angmar, he took the pose of a dark sorcerer, so called the "Necromancer". He then began to expand his influence upon the forest, using Gundabad Orcs, Wargs and Mirkwood Spiders to do his bidding.

Upon discovery by Radagast the Brown, the guardian of Mirkwood, Radagast and Gandalf took action against him, under Galadriel's wishes. Azog and a battalion of Orcs later ambushed Gandalf at Dol Guldur, when he was searching for the Necromancer. Gandalf ran through a corridor, where he found and fought the Necromancer. The latter revealed himself to be Sauron, and defeated Gandalf. Azog then caged the defeated wizard, as the Necromancer's evil army of Orcs marched towards the Lonely Mountain.

However, after his Orc army was defeated, the White Council put forth their might and drove the Necromancer from Dol Guldur permanently However, the Dark Lord, having had ample time to prepare, was willing to abandon Dol Guldur, and returned to Mordor, where he openly declared himself and began preparations for his armies. description This is a description taken from Do not modify it.
