Fimbrethil – “Slim-birch”, Treebeard’s beloved Entwife, whom he sings about. She grew gardens across the Great River in what is now known as the Brown Lands. Fimbrethil (and all the Entwives) had been missing since Sauron’s forces destroyed the gardens of the Entwives during the Second Age.

Shelob – “She-spider”, great spider that dwelt in Cirith Ungol, daughter of the giant, ancient spider Ungoliant, she was the oldest of the Great Spiders to survive Beleriand and the last of her kind. Refered to as “She” by Gollum, Sauron used her to guard the pass at Cirith Ungol. She temporarily paralyzed Frodo, but Sam used Sting to wound her and The Phial of Galadriel to blind her, and she went back to her lair severely injured. Whether she died or not is unknown. She is related to the spiders of Mirkwood who capture Bilbo’s dwarf comrades in The Hobbit.
