The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 205 - Breeding programmes

Sauron's involvement in breeding orcs and werewolves is canon; his involvement in breeding big scaly lizard things that breathe fire is my extrapolation.

Also, in his earlier writing Tolkien described there being hordes of Balrogs - entire armies of them. Later on he wrote that pehaps it would be better if there were only a few, maybe seven or so.

Or maybe there were hundreds of lesser Balrogs, but only seven of them had wings? :)

Part 205: Breeding programmes

Next time: Part 206: King of the world

Chibis by the website formerly known as
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
