    This is Thrór's mouth with the purse of coins that Azog placed inside of it after beheading him in Moria.

    To me this sounds like Gandalf when he is resurrected following the battle with Durin’s Bane:

    “Naked I was sent back – for a brief time, until my task is done. And naked I lay upon the mountain-top. The tower behind was crumbled into dust, the window gone; the ruined stair was choked with burned and broken stone. I was alone, forgotten, without escape upon the hard horn of the world. There I lay staring upward, while the stars wheeled over, and each day was as long as a life-age of the earth. Faint to my ears came the gathered rumour of all lands: the springing and the dying, the song and the weeping, and the slow everlasting groan of over-burdened stone. And so at the last Gwaihir the Windlord found me again, and he took me up and bore me away.”

    Excerpt From
    The Lord of the Rings

    I’m an alien, an illegal alien: I’m a Gondorian Captain in Rohan...

    I agree with TheArtilleryman that it is Gandalf, and obviously if that's correct then they get the next turn.

    About your hints:

    Bane's bane indicates Gandalf as he killed the Balrog a.k.a. Durin's Bane.

    Not an elf, regardless of what the Norse would tell me regards the origins of Gandalf's name, where Gandalfr meant staff elf.

    Clever! As I’ve answered the Jeopardy as well, I suggest you take the riddle stick on this one for that excellent bit of trivia! (Assuming we’re both right, of course )

    Yes, the answer is "Gandalf".

    Between the two of you, decide who wants the next turn.

    Sam, thinking Sehelob had killed Frodo, took the ring and his sword and left him for dead in Cirith Ungol, only for the orcs to find him alive but paralysed, and take him prisoner. Sam was pretty annoyed with himself for this.

    Hmm... how about round doors in hobbit holes/houses?
