What really happened to the Two Blue Wizards in Middle-Earth?
After years of research, I’ve finally found what really happened to the two blue wizards in Middle-earth!
If you’re not a Tolkien nerd, simply know that five “semi-gods” were sent by the “gods” to Middle-earth to help the free people to fight Sauron. They were called the Istari, or Wizards. If you’ve seen the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies, you already know three of them: Gandalf, Saruman and Radagast. There were two other wizards, commonly called the blue wizards, who went to the eastern parts of Middle-earth and were never heard of again. Tolkien never explains what happened to them in his books, and in his letters, he changed his mind a few times; they may have failed, died, become cult leaders, or they may have succeeded and helped weaken the people of the East and of the South who were controlled by Sauron, and it could be thanks to them that the free people of the West managed to resist Sauron long enough for Frodo to destroy the One Ring. We’ll never know.
If you are a Tolkien nerd, please, don’t be horrified by the oversimplifications I made here.
But what we now know is the reason why they left in the first place. Here it is, Lego style:
Here come the Istari! From left to right: Radagast, Gandalf, Saruman, Alatar and Pallando.

And here is what went down during their very first meeting:
“You can’t be serious!? Did you see what you’re wearing? This is Middle-earth here, not a Halloween party! Don’t even imagine a second that you can hang out with us!”
“Is it just me, or didn’t one of them had bird-shit in his hair?”
