Goblin-men

 / Goblin-man
   Creatures bred by Saruman as his servants.
   Creatures created by Saruman, apparently by blending the races of Orcs and Men. Precisely what they were is mysterious - they are only ever mentioned once by name, during the Battle of the Hornburg - but they seem to be distinct from Half-orcs, and rather more Man-like.
