Gwaihir became a friend of Gandalf the Istar after the latter healed him of a poisoned wound. Gwaihir repaid his friend's kindness many times over as the years went by, rescuing Gandalf, Thorin Oakenshield and their companions from Wargs and Goblins (Orcs) on their way to the Lonely Mountain. The Windlord subsequently led his Eagles to the Battle of the Five Armies. He also rescued Gandalf from his imprisonment atop Isengard and later from the Peak of Zirak Zigil (Silvertine) after his battle with the Balrog. Finally, Gwaihir saved Frodo the Ringbearer and his companion Samwise from Orodruin (Mount Doom) after the destruction of the One Ring. Gwaihir's Eagles also served Gandalf and his fellow Istar Radagast as spies at their Lord's instructions.
