Roger Garland's painting "Thu as Wolf More Great" Can't Post

always intrigued me because I could not find the name in the Silmarillion. It appears he was delving into other works...Lost Tales etc. Howeever, BOLT indicates "Tu" the wizard of fay who became King of the Dark Elves...Replaced by Tuvo...Lord of Gloaming.
Where is the wolf connection?

As I posted under the Warg discussion in The Hobbit forum....


later became Thu, who was later Sauron."


"Sauron grew from a combination of three characters from the Lost Tales - he has the name of the wizard Tu (Tu - Thu - Thaur - Thauron - Sauron), the position of Fankil/Fangli (The Dragon to Melko), and the narrative role of Tevildo Prince of Cats in The Tale of Tinuviel."

When Sauron, as a werewolf fights Huan this was
probably his form.


Ted Nasmith drew the fight but he used the name "Wolf-Sauron" and he appears more werewolfish / demon in the rendering.

Doen anyone know the reference for Thu or Tu as Sauron in one of the texts?
