15A Nazgul’s Morgul-Blade Can Turn Any Victim Into A Wraith

Lord of the Rings fans may remember the first time that the Witch-king stabbed Frodo with a Morgul-nlade. The sword shatters on contact with a living heart, leaving a shard of the blade in the fallen. The blade is capable of turning anyone into a wraith.

Most people would succumb and inevitably fall

into the unseen realm. In the case of Frodo, Elrond was able to remove the shard and get rid of the poison. However, on the anniversary, Frodo becomes seriously ill and isn’t fully cured until he finally departs for Eldamar. It is unknown whether or not anyone has been turned into a wraith successfully since not many have been stabbed with a wraith's blade.

Athelas is the only known plant that can counter the Morgul-blade and prevent its poison from being fatal. The plant has a particular scent to each individual. For example, if Faramir kept the plant, he would smell “Dewey mornings of an unshadow sun."
