Gandalf the Grey is a hero for the Men of the West faction (or for Gondor in BFME 1).

Lore Edit

Gandalf the Grey/White (Olorin) was one of the 5 Istari (Wizards), the others being Saruman the White, Radagast the Brown and two un-named blue Wizards. Following his defeat of the Balrog, as well as Saruman denouncing the Istari and claiming the title of Saruman of Many Colours for himself, Gandalf attained the rank of white and became Saruman "as he should have been". Gandalf was one of the Maia (Spirits) and therefore ageless however he existed as Gandalf from the beginning of Middle Earth, before the age of Lamps and is approximately 2019 years old. He was instrumental in the unmasking Sauron hiding as a Necromancer in Dol Guldur in the early Third Age as well as his exploits with the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Gandalf was also very influential during the War of the Ring, advising and influencing in the plan to destroy the one ring. Although not powerful enough to engage Sauron by himself Gandalf was one of the hero's instrumental in his final defeat. Gandalf was also the bearer of the Elvish ring of power, Narya. Gandalf left with Frodo Baggins and Galadriel for the Undying Lands following the War of the Ring
