Wraith

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

Wraiths are undead creatures who dwell in the world of the Unseen. In this game, wraiths are a rare race, appearing as a handful of rarely-played Culture Sauron.svg Sauron and Culture Ringwraith.svg Wraith culture minions and a subculture of Culture Gondor.svg Gondor companions representing the oathbreaking army of the dead.

While the Nazgul -- the ringwraiths -- are wraiths in Lord of the Rings, "Nazgûl" and "wraith" are considered separate races in this game, and cards that apply to one do not automatically apply to the other. Likewise, Culture Ringwraith.svg Wraith culture is considered separate from the "wraith" race, although some wraiths are also Culture Ringwraith.svg Wraith culture.
