It's time for some BS! Can't Post

This is part 2 of a 3-part Book Spoiler as we continue to look at one of Appendix B's Tales from the Third Age… for a moment of Tolkien-zen.
Here the link to Some BS on The Third Age, pt.1

APPENDIX B: THE TALE OF YEARS

(CHRONOLOGY OF THE WESTLANDS)

The Third Age


... "When maybe a thousand years had passed, and the first shadow had fallen on Greenwood the Great, the Istari or Wizards appeared in Middle-earth. It was afterwards said that they came out of the Far West… …messengers sent to contest the power of Sauron, and to unite all those who had the will to resist him; but they were forbidden to match his power with power, or… …to dominate Elves or Men by force and fear.
... They came therefore in the shape of Men, though they were never young and aged only slowly… …they had many powers of mind and hand. They revealed their true names to few, but used such names as were given to them. The two highest of this order (… it is said there were five) were called by the Eldar Curnír, 'the Man of Skill', and Mithrandir, 'the Grey Pilgrim'… …Men in the North Saruman and Gandalf. Curinír journeyed often into the East, but dwelt at last in Isengard. Mithrandir was closest in friendship with the Eldar, and wandered mostly in the West, and never made for himself any lasting abode."
