Flies of Mordor
In the black realm of Mordor it was said there lived only orcs, trolls and men, who were thralls of Sauron.The only beasts in Mordor were the evil swarms of bloodsucking flies. These were grey, brown and black insects: they were loud, hateful and hungry, and they were all marked, as orcs of that land were marked, with a red eye-shape upon their backs. So the Dark Lord´s power had spread to the smallest evil in his land.
