This is No.6 out of 9 Wraiths, only 6 were featured in The Hobbit movie trilogy so the next 3 and Sauron will give me complete artistic freedom, however this one is based on the pictures below. I say 'based on' as I always take an artistic license here and there as these are CGI characters existing in a 2D world and it's not always possible or convenient for me to translate that into the real world mechanics of 1/6 figures that need to be fully articulated IMO.
Like most of The Nine there seems to be no story or name behind this Wraith other than he was once a human king corrupted by one of the nine rings of power given to mortal men and then enslaved by the necromancer Sauron to live forever as a spectre of himself and do Sauron's bidding. He is seen with the other 5 Wraith (that I have already made figures of shown in the links below and the LOTR/TH marathon WIP build thread that now has 24 pages of work and many more characters built on it, 13 in total so far) at the battle of Dol Guldur fighting Saruman, Elrond with Galadriel protecting Gandalf then facing down Sauron, albeit at a distance.
