Riding his warg

Biography == Sharku means "Old Man" in the Black Speech and, as such, Sharku is said to be a veteran of the Wars with Goblins, thousands of years before his service to Isengard. This would mean that Sharku is likely a Goblin of the same breed that conquered Moria, the Orcs of the Misty Mountains. Sharku leads the Riders if Isengard against the fleeing citizens of Edoras, but his forces are intercepted by Rohirrim Cavalry. A fight insues, where Aragorn is supposedly slain (though he lives, and fights at the Hornburg), Hama is killed, and Sharku perishes at the end.
