We might get the brief introduction to these White-robed people in the next episode.
Like previous episodes, the fifth chapter of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power introduced us to some mysterious new characters. We saw a trio in white robes holding a staff with a unique design, investigating the land where the Meteor Man landed. The scene put a major focus on the one with short hair, who was giving an intense look while examining the very spot where Nori found the Meteor Man.
These characters first appeared in the series’ official trailer, and now, we finally have them in the show. Their appearance has raised many questions, and several fan theories link them directly to Sauron, the dark lord who commands the darkness. Although their real identity will only be revealed in the coming episodes, let’s see what we know about them so far.
The White-Robed Characters Might Be From The Far East
It would be fair to start with what we know about the mysterious white-robed characters. In an interview with TIME, the executive producer of the series, Lindsey Weber, talked about the main white-robbed character but denied telling her name. She did share that the character traveled from the east, from the lands of Rhun. If you have read J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novel, you won’t find much knowledge about the lands of the far east. So, it makes sense why the white-robed characters are a complete mystery.
It should be noted that Sauron fled to the east after Morgoth’s defeat and wasn’t seen in the west for around a thousand years. But, the dark lord returned in the first millennium of the second age. Orcs can also be traced back to the east, and as they are following Adar (The rogue elf) at the moment, it hints that Adar also comes from the eastern land and shares a connection with Sauron.
The same theory can be explored on the internet, with the fans linking the mysterious characters to the Cult of Melkor (another name for Morgoth.) Sauron might have become the head of the cult and is leading the group on an unknown mission, which will get revealed in the later episodes. But for now, it seems like the white-robed people have something to do with the Meteor Man as they are found inspecting the area where he first landed.
As we have seen previously, Meteor Man has a special connection with stars, the moon, and other celestial objects. And in the recent episode, he can be seen casting some sort of spell to heal himself from the injury he receives after defeating the wolves. So, while his mysteries continue, we can only theorize that his powers and his origin are of utmost importance to the white-hooded trio and to Sauron.
Who Plays The Role Of White Robed People In The Rings of Power
The one with short hair who seems to be the leader of the group is played by Bridie Sisson, who is also known for her role in Cowboy Bepop (2021.) The one with a helmet on her head is played by Edith Poor, and Kali Kopae plays the one with a round artifact in her hand.
