Old Nûzu (BS."Witty") was a lesser orc elder who lived in Mordor as a soldier. During the War of the Ring, he was mainly stationed in Cirith Ungol and took part in the battle against the Uruk-Hai. However, since they were big, Nûzu fled away in terror and ran down southwards to inform his fellow captains of what had happened.
- Nuzu was only mentioned in Tolkien's early drafts for the later Lord of the Rings, he appears in the History of the Lord of the Rings , the War of the Ring p. 212 and 218.
