Radagast lay face down in the mud. His face was covered with dirt, as was his brown tunic. His long beard was knotted and rotten. The days of the Istar were numbered in the mind of the bumbling wizard. Gandalf had left for the grey havens and Saruman had been struck down, the last remaining wizards were scattered across middle earth. Radagast had not seen Alator since before the war of the ring and assumed he was killed during the last resistance on Middle Earth. For ten years Radagast had been trapped on the southern borders of Mordor. For centuries this forgotten region had been a desolate wasteland. It was not his fault, or so he thought, that he was trapped here but Radagast was too trusting in his animal companions and was unaware of the evil spread of Saurons servants. Now this story began when Radagast last met up with Ganadalf. Many years seemed to have passed in his isolation since that fate-deciding day. Radagast had been tricked and manipulated into delivering Gandalf to Saruman the white. This had almost failed the war of the ring in its first days but fortunately luck prevailed. Radagast on the other hand was not so lucky. It was during the incarceration of Gandalf that it became the aim of Sauron to destroy the Istar once and for all. For Radagast this became his doom. Of course he was the only wizard who was foolish enough to be captured by a bird who asked him to follow, but that was his lot in life. Saruman was left as a servant of Sauron and Gandalf was his prisoner. Pallando had been tortured by Sauron before his downfall. Radagast knew none of this, in his new home he received no news, there were no animals to talk to, he simply thought that all the other Istari had been slain, even Saruman who he still believed was serving the side of the good. Radagast had believed for years that the fellowship of the ring had failed and that Sauron dominated middle earth. Until now. In his dreams he was visited by a figure that he once knew but whose face he could not place. This mysterious figure told him little news but enough to know that the war of the ring had indeed succeeded and although Sauron had returned, there was still a chance. Radagast now travelled northwards. His movement was slow and clumsy and thrice he had stumbled. At this point Radagast began to fell that Saruman had been right and that he was a bumbling fool. But he was determined, he must reach Isengard. The figure had told him of one surviving wizard and knowing that Saruman lived in a fortified palace, convinced him that Saruman must have indeed survived. Travelling on foot was taking a very long time, Radagast had been travelling for three months. In the dark he could not even tell if he was travelling in the right direction. His sense told him that he was. Radagast had not yet though what he would do once he reached Mordor. He hoped he would pass unnoticed.
