Lagdush was a Gundabad Orc who was part of Azog's pack who pursued Thorin and Company during the Quest of Erebor.


Sometime in the year TA 2941, Lagdush was one of the Hunter Orcs that were tasked by Azog the Defiler to hunt Thorin Oakenshield and his company of Dwarves, thus ending the line of Durin's Folk. He accompanied Yazneg, Fimbul, and numerous Orcs and Wargs on an attack on Thorin's company and were led astray by Radagast the Brown, who was using his rabbit pulled sled to act as a distraction for the Dwarves. During the chase, Lagdush caught scent of the Company and searched for them, though he and his Warg were shot down by Kili and were killed by Bifur, Dwalin, and Thorin which caused his other comrades to detect the Dwarves' hiding place.
