An Orc in the service of the Tower of Cirith Ungol, under the command of Shagrat. He disappeared for several days, but was eventually discovered by his fellow Orcs; he had been poisoned by Shelob, and wound in her webs. When he was found, he had recovered from the poison and was fully awake. Unsure whether Shelob meant to return for her prize, the Orcs of the Tower chose to leave Ufthak to his fate.
