Best Answer

That would be Saruman the White, who in the books becomes Saruman the Many Colored before having his staff shattered by Gandalf the White. A Maiar (demigod) and Istari (wizard), he was corrupted by the lure of power, and eventually died at the hands of Grima Wormtongue.

Saruman was given the tower by the Steward of Gondor, Beren, in the year 2759 of the Third Age.

What is Harry Potter1 all about?

Harry Potter (the first one) is all about Harry finding out that he is a Wizard and going to Hogwarts and fighting Voldemort (the darkest wizard ever) for the first time. When Harry was a baby his parents were killed by Voldemort and he tried to kill Harry, but couldn't because their parents gave up their lives for Harry. Harry is the only wizard ever to survive the killing curse, and so he is the most famous wizard in the wizard world and Harry has to get used to that.

Which of the Dark Lord's chief foes lives in Rivendell in The Lord of The Rings?

Elrond Half-elven, who has one of the Three Rings (in particular, Vilya, mightiest of the Three) and has been an inveterate foe of Sauron for over three thousand years.) It is possible that Aragorn might also live in Rivendell inasmuch as he lives anywhere-he certainly lived in Rivendell until he was twenty. But it is nowhere explicit in Tolkien that he does live there.
