                Gandalf (the grey): is the wizard we hear most about in
              The Lord Of The Rings. Gandalf has many names;
   Gandalf is mostly used in the North,
                Mithrandir among the Elves, Tharkun among dwarfes,
                 Incanus in the South, and he was called Olórin on the
                other side of the Great Sea. He keeps one of the
                   Elven rings, the ring of fire.Gandalf knows many languages,
              and he is very wise. Therefore, he is a good leader
        and leads the company well, until he falls in the
               darkness of Moria. The Company meets him again,
               though, when they travel across Rohan.
                Rohan is situated in the south of Middle Earth,
                   and the land is under the power of Théoden King.
                   When the Company meets him again,he is called the White
                   rider,and is wholly clad in white because at that time,
                   he had become leader of the White Council. He finds
             Théoden in a quite miserable state, his minds
                    poisoned by Wormtongue, Sarumans servant. Gandalf gives
                   new hope to Théoden, and they both ride against Saruman,
                   for the final battle he is given the best horse: Shadowfax.



 

 






The Balrog reached the bridge. Gandalf stood in
  the middle of the span, leaning on the staff in
  his left hand, but in his other hand Glamdring
  gleamed, cold and white. His enemy halted
  again, facing him, and
  the shadow about it
  reached out like two
  vast wings. It raised
  the whip, and the
  thongs whined and
  cracked. Fire came
  from its nostrils. But
  Gandalf stood firm.
  'You cannot pass,' he
  said. The orcs stood
  still, and a dead silence
  fell. 'I am a servant of
  the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor.
  You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail
  you, flame of Udun. Go back to the Shadow!
  You cannot pass.'
The Balrog made no answer. The fire in it
  seemed to die, but the darkness grew. It stepped
  forward slowly on to the bridge, and suddenly it
  drew itself up to a great height, and its wings
  were spread from wall to wall; but still Gandalf
  could be seen, glimmering in the gloom; he
  seemed small, and altogether alone: grey and
  bent, like a wizened tree before the onset of a
  storm.
  From out of the shadow a red sword leaped
  flaming. Glamdring glittered white in answer.
  There was a ringing clash and a stab of white
  fire. The Balrog fell back and its sword flew up
  in molten fragments. The wizard swayed on the
  bridge, stepped back a pace, and then again
  stood still.
