Relations and relevance [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree that all the Istari are in a way 'related' to each other in a way. They all pretty much equally divine beings. They have (nearly) equal powers, and they are all very, very, (very) old. The Istari are all one Order sent to Middle-earth from above, so this could be literal or metaphorical. Either way it fits quite nicely. The relevance of Radagast is questioned by the film vs book fanboys because Radagast never truly aids Mithrandir in discovering Dol Guldur, OR the destruction of it. (That's accomplished by the Wise and a host of Galadhrim. See the Appendices) However, he is an easily loved character, in both book and film, and I believe we all agree that his role, although minute, is special in its own way.
