Saruman the White lost his place as the leader of the Istari in the book The Two Towers. He urged the other Wizards not to challenge Sauron's growing power, and used the Palantír of Orthanc which weakened him and enslaved him to Sauron. By 2953 he turned Isengard into a dark generator of Uruk-hai, and he used them to fight in his attempt to defeat Rohan. When the Ents overthrew Isengard he was defeated and cast out of the Wizards by Gandalf. After the defeat, Fangorn the Ent let him go and he set out to wreak destruction in the Shire. Saruman was defeated on Frodo's return and finally slain in 3019 by Gríma Wormtongue.

Wormtongue, aka Gríma, was chief advisor to King Théoden of Rohan, while also being secretly in the employ of Saruman. He gave Saruman information about Rohan and slowly enfeebled Théoden, in the expectation that Éowyn would become his. Wormtongue fled Rohan after Gandalf restored Théoden to his full senses. He went to Saruman in Isengard, finally following his master to the Shire, where he slit his throat. Wormtongue was killed by the Hobbits in 3019 of the Third Age.
