Balrog of Moria 11" x 17" Poster
The Balrogs are formerly angelic beings corrupted by the Vala Melkor & enslaved to evil in Demonic Form. Having survived the defeat of Morgoth in the War of Wrath & escaped to hide beneath the Misty Mountain. The Balrog of Moria hid for millennia deep in the roots of Caradhras, one of the Mountains of Moria, until in the Third Age, the Mithril-miners of the Dwarf-kingdom of Khazad-dûm disturbed it & in return, the Balrog slew the Dwarven King Durin VI & gained the title Durin's Bane. The Dwarves attempted to fight the Balrog, but its power was far too great & great numbers of Dwarves were slain including Durin's successor King Náin only a year after his father. The survivors were forced to flee. The "Nameless Terror" also disturbed the Silvan Elves of Lórien & the Balrog ruled Moria for 500 year. When the Fellowship of the Ring decided to travel through Moria, it was the Balrog that instilled terror in the party whether they knew it or not & for good reason, the Balrog killed Gandalf after a terrible battle.
