NAME: Rulbasa [rool-bah-sah], though she's bound to accumulate a lineup of them (and will undergo a name change, once she settles with a new, more permanent owner/caregiver), whatever anyone wants to call her
NICKNAMES: None so far
DATE OF BIRTH AND AGE (as of T.A. 3019): 11 years old (born T.A. 3008)
RACE: Horse

HAIR COLOUR AND APPEARANCE: Solid black, turning a brown hue (with auburn streaks in her mane and tail) when left out in the sun
EYE COLOUR: Dark brown, in their normal state. Under the influence of Darkness/Corruption, they can take on an eerie red glow.
BODY TYPE AND HEIGHT: Tall, lean, athletic build. Stands 16 hands (5 ft, 4 in) at the withers.
OVERALL APPEARANCE: Walks about freely in her naked state. Usually wears a saddle and bridle, being ridden often.
DISTINGUISHING MARKS: Empty right eye socket (once the eye has been properly removed, after the Flood of Bruinen)
WEAPONS: Hooves. Teeth. Wits.  Aura of Darkness for intimidation effect.
FACE CLAIM: Virginia - Black Thoroughbred mare (shi-stock on DeviantArt), credit link HERE.

STRENGTHS: Can outrun most ordinary horses, but is no match for exceptional Elf horses like Asfaloth.  Can bear the presence of the Nazgul, specially trained to withstand fear of Darkness.

WEAKNESSES: Relying on her left eye, she's more skittish and tense towards things approaching on her right side.  After nearly drowning in the Flood of Bruinen, she's developed severe aquaphobia.

ASPIRATIONS: Nothing beyond daily survival, with a "hope" (Corrupt urge) of returning to her Nazgul rider

FEARS: Water (drowning)

PERSONALITY: Depressed, confused, and blinded by Darkness. It is her Corrupt desire to be controlled by a master, to reunite with her Nazgul rider, and to work herself to death. She is not used to exercising free will, and has all but forgotten how to act like a "normal" horse. Nearly a decade of abuse and isolation has instilled her with masochistic-sadistic behavior, resulting in her extreme aggression or total submission to others, desensitization towards pain, as well as a loner mentality.  But this is not who she really is…  Beneath layers of Corruption, the spark of the filly she once was, before her capture and enslavement at Minas Morgul, may yet be restored.  Only time and, daresay, kindness will tell.

HISTORY: She was born on the plains of Nurn, and ran free with a herd of black horses for nearly two years, until a pack of orc riders came and drove her and a band of yearlings across the barren Plateau of Gorgoroth.  Few survived the journey to Minas Morgul.  The dark fortress culled them one by one, through torture and Corruption, yielding only the strongest to endure the presence of the Nazgul.  Her caregiver, a crippled orc named Groll, was the closest thing to a "friend" that would tend to her wounds and smuggle her an extra piece of stale bread to retain the last ounce of fat on her hide.  He called her "Rulbasa", a name not readily forgotten as she set out with the other Black Riders in search of the One Ring.  She is the only horse of the Ringwraiths to survive the Flood of Bruinen, losing her right eye in her tumble down the rapids.  So long as the Nazgul live, she cannot be rid of her Corruption entirely, nor escape the tether of Darkness that draws her towards Mordor…

Three of the black horses had been found at once drowned in the flooded Ford. On the rocks of the rapids below it searchers discovered the bodies of five more, and also a long black cloak, slashed and tattered. Of the Black Riders no other trace was to be seen, and nowhere was their presence to be felt. It seemed that they had vanished from the North.

'Eight out of the Nine are accounted for at least,' said Gandalf. 'It is rash to be too sure, yet I think that we may hope now that the Ringwraiths were scattered, and have been obliged to return as best they could to their Master in Mordor, empty and shapeless.

Well, you know how much I love "exploring a dark creature's psyche". The poor damaged thing! She looks great. Go, have fun, and though she may not, I hope she finds happiness :D
