The Blue Wizards, primarily known as the Two Istari, according to the artifacts they are mentioned in, as no one can remember their names.Mordor hunting a great evil, the rise of Sauron. Although the pair likely never escaped the cursed realm, their exploits were well detailed and may have inspired the creation of magical cults throughout Middle-earth. One of their stops was in south Mordor near the Sea of Núrnen. It was here that they helped found magical cults, some of which may have resisted Sauron's control (see Queen Marwen's people, and their 'blue flame').
One of the two was tall, and the other shorter, and they often had conversations where one would finish the answer of the other, as if their minds were directly connected. When they left Mordor, one of them left a star chart, possibly because they didn't need it anymore.
Another peculiar element is that they apparently had some magical effect on individuals, which would cause those who met them to forget their names, and they apparently preferred it like that.
In their various stops around Mordor one left a broken staff in one location, and in another a star chart.
The magic cults would later carve blue azurite figurines representing the wizards.
It is rumored that the Black Hand was a great king from the east who brought the heads of the two istari to Mordor as gifts to Sauron.

Behind the scenesEdit
The reference to them founding magic cults behind enemy lines is a reference to material that appears in Letters of Tolkien, but also is mentioned in Unfinished Tales, and Peoples of Middle-earth as well.
