I doubt that a man [In reply to] Can't Post

who is so enthralled by magic that his substance is trapped in the shadow world would have the ability to undertake any action that doesn't gybe with the wishes of Sauron. I think he has enough independent will to decide what he will do, but only within the bounds placed on him - e.g. Sauron instructs him to find the One Ring, but how he does that is up to him. So keeping the ring for himself is beyond the ability of the Witchking, but he is able to take hold of it to return it to Sauron.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
