Nichelle Nichols as Gandwif the Grey—Gandwif was one of the five Istari sent to Middle-earth by the Valar in the Third Age. In Valinor she was known as Olóriel. Gandwif was instrumental in bringing about the demise of Sauron in the Third Age, chiefly by encouraging others and dispensing her wisdom at pivotal times. Gandalf was originally robed in grey, and second to Saruvan in the Order of wizards. After her fall in Moria, Gandwif returned to Middle-earth as head of the Order, robed in white. Gandwif was noteworthy for her keen interest in pipe-smoking, and the Hobbits who instructed her in the art.
