A Warg, in various mythologies and fantasy fiction, is a creature resembling a wolf but possessing greater intelligence and often malevolent intent.

The term "Warg" is deeply rooted in Norse mythology and Old English language.

In Norse lore, a "vargr" is a wolf, notably the monstrous Fenrir who is prophesied to kill the god Odin during Ragnarök, and Fenrir's offspring, Sköll and Hati, who chase the celestial bodies.

In Old English, "wearh" signifies an outcast or outlaw, sometimes associated with being strangled to death.

The modern concept of Wargs owes much to J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth legendarium, where Wargs are evil wolves allied with orcs and capable of being ridden into battle.

Tolkien's creation influenced subsequent fantasy works, leading to Wargs being featured in various books, games, and media.

For instance, in George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, a Warg is a person with the supernatural ability to enter the minds of animals, seeing through their eyes and controlling their actions.

The etymology of "Warg" combines the Old Norse "vargr" and Old English "wearh," both of which have connotations of wolves and outlaws.

This duality is reflected in their portrayal as creatures that are not merely wolves but represent something more sinister and outcast.

A warg is a person with the ability to enter the mind of an animal and perceive the world through its senses and even control its actions.

The act of doing this is called "warging".

Wargs are a type of skinchangers, who can inhabit the minds of different kinds of animals.

Wargs are more common among the free folk beyond the Wall, who fear and honor them.

Warging usually starts as vivid dreams, in which the warg sees through the eyes of an animal.

With practice, a warg can enter the mind of an animal at will, but his or her own body will become unconscious and vulnerable during this time.

Wargs can form bonds with certain animals, especially wolves and dogs, and share their thoughts and feelings.

Some wargs can also have greensight, the ability to see past and future events in dreams.

Warging is not without risks or limits.

If the animal that the warg is controlling dies, the warg will experience great pain and trauma.

If the warg's own body dies while his or her mind is in an animal, the warg's consciousness can survive in the animal, but will gradually fade over time.

Wargs cannot easily enter the minds of other humans, unless they are very weak or simple-minded.

Wargs also have to resist the influence of the animal's instincts and personality, or else they may lose their own identity and humanity.

Wargs are a kind of evil wolves that can be ridden by orcs.

They appear in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and are based on the Norse mythological wolves Fenrir, Sköll and Hati.

In The Hobbit, wargs can speak and plan to attack the woodmen's villages with the goblins.

They also chase Thorin's Company and trap them in a glade, but are driven away by Gandalf's fire and the eagles.

Later, they join the goblin army in the Battle of Five Armies, but are defeated by the allies of dwarves, elves, men and eagles.

In The Lord of the Rings, wargs are used by Sauron and Saruman as scouts and mounts for their orcs.

They attack the Fellowship near Moria, but are killed by Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli.

They also ambush the Rohirrim at the Fords of Isen, and participate in the Battle of Helm's Deep and the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

Wargs are described as shaggy, large, fast, powerful and vicious.

They have different colors of fur, such as black, brown, gray or white.

They can communicate with each other and with orcs using a wolf-language, and possibly also understand Westron or Black Speech.

A warg is a fantasy creature that is often depicted as a large and evil wolf that can be ridden by orcs or other dark beings.

The name and characteristics of wargs are derived from Norse and English mythology, where they are associated with both Odin and his enemies.

A warg is not a simple beast
But a cunning and cruel hunter
It roams the wilds with bloodlust and greed
And serves the dark lord's plunder

A warg is not a loyal steed
But a treacherous and hungry rider
It turns on its master with fangs and speed
And devours the weak and cower

A warg is a large and evil kind of wolf that can be ridden by orcs.

The size of a warg may vary depending on the source, but generally they are much bigger than normal wolves.

Here are some examples of warg sizes from different sources:
  • In J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth fiction, a warg is about 3 feet high and 5 feet long, and weighs around 300 pounds.

  • In Dungeons & Dragons, a worg is a large monstrosity with a natural armor and a speed of 50 feet per round.
    It has a bite attack that can knock its prey prone.

  • In Forgotten Realms, a worg resembles a typical wolf, though with gray or black fur and an intelligent, wicked gleam in its eyes.
    It stands 3 feet high and is 5 feet long, and weighs around 300 pounds.

As you can see, wargs are formidable creatures that can pose a serious threat to anyone who encounters them.

They are cunning and malevolent, and often serve as mounts for goblins and hobgoblins.

They can also speak in their own language and sometimes in Goblin or Common.
