In J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth legendarium, werewolves were servants of Morgoth, wolf-like beasts "inhabited by dreadful spirits" that Sauron had imprisoned in the bodies. Tolkien does not always distinguish between wolf and werewolf, in one place using both terms for the same creature. Sauron commanded armies of werewolves in the First Age, and on occasion took the shape of a werewolf himself.
