Milcoth is the main antagonist in the Lords of Darkness series, and is the maker of Orcs, goblins, and trolls.

He is also one of the three Erdoras made by Talun. The lands that he made were used as Orc forges, and goblin pits.

Milcoth later created creatures called Wilwolves, which he used to kill the Itara and Irata. Milcoth constructed the dark speech and its confusing symbols.

Milcoth was finally destroyed by Dorian in the mid Fourth Age.
