The “Lord of the Rings” saga mentions five wizards. This series of caches is in honor of each of those wizards. They are the Gandalf the Grey, Radagast the Brown Wizard, Saruman the White Wizard, Alatar the Blue Wizard, and Pallando the Blue Wizard. To get to the One-Ring, you must visit each of the five wizards.
This cache is for Radagast, the Brown Wizard. Radagast is a fictional character in J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium, appearing in The Lord of the Rings.
Radagast is one of the Istari (wizards). He has "much lore of herbs and beasts, and birds are especially his friends." The third of the wizards who appear in The Lord of the Rings, Radagast's special talent is for communicating with birds. "Radagast" is an old Germanic name meaning "wise or well advised spirit, guest or stranger".
Radagast is presented as a person of much less power and wisdom than are Saruman and Gandalf.
Radagast the Brown dwelt in his home of Rhosgobel where he tended to the animals of the area. When Bilbo, Gandalf, and Thorin's company of dwarves are about to pass through Mirkwood, they meet Beorn. Gandalf, wishing to make a friend of Beorn, makes a reference to Radagast, calling him his cousin. Beorn is familiar with Radagast and proceeds to give Gandalf and his followers quarter. The only other time Radagast comes into the tales is when we're given his name in The Silmarillion and when he unknowingly lures Gandalf into Saruman's trap when he rides to tell him news of the Nazgûl being abroad.
Take note of the number in the container lid. This will assist you with the final cache in the series “The One Ring.”
