Re: The Two Blue Wizards
To the best of my knowledge, here is what is known about the Blue Wizards from lore:
1. Their names in Valinorin are Alatar and Pallando
2. Their names in Quenya are Romestamo and Morhinatar. Which is which is not known.
3. Alatar was the more powerful of the two.
4. They came over from Valinor some time before Gandalf.
5. They went east beyond Mordor with Saruman, but did not return with him.
6. In Valinor, they were servants of Ulmo.
7. Some versions of Tolkien's notes imply that they fell in much the same manner that Saruman did. Some versions imply that they somehow mobilized a force on Mordor's eastern boarder.
I prefer to think that Saruman coming back from the east without them was the beginning of Saruman's fall. After all, he never mentions to anyone else what happened to Alatar and Pallando. Clearly, something happened. Whether this means that the Blue Wizards fell first and put the idea in Saruman's head or whether Saruman himself was responsible for them not making it back is something I could never decide. As for what happened to the Blue Wizards, I like to think that it was some delicious combination of Tolkien's notes.
