"And in Utumno he [Melkor] gathered his demons about him, those spirits who first adhered to him in the days of his splendour, and became most like him in his corruption: their hearts were of fire, but they were cloaked in darkness, and terror went before them; they had whips of flame. Balrogs they were named in Middle-earth in later days. "
The Silmarillion

The Valaraukar, or Balrogs ("Demon of Might"), were demons of fire that served Morgoth, master of Sauron. They were among his most dreadful servants.

In TA 1980, a Balrog awoke in Moria when the Dwarves had mined too deep for mithril. It drove the Dwarves out of their home and slew King Durin VI; the Balrog was thereafter known as "Durin's Bane". This particular Balrog was later slain by Gandalf.

The Balrog is a summonable hero of the upcoming Misty Mountains faction. Information to this page will be added as soon as it is available.
