Is it Ioreth? The woman in the Houses of Healing who told Aragorn there was athelas (kingsfoil) available for healing?

That answer seemed a little iffy on the "person" aspect, so I'll ask,

is this person of the race of Men?

Don't forget Liz's question:

Hmmm. Not in the Hobbit. Evil 'person', not of the race of Men. Not native of Mordor. Not Saruman, not associated with Saruman.

It sounds like this person is male. This person isn't a Man, so he could be a wizard, elf, orc, dwarf.

Is this person a wizard?

Hmm...

Is it *Sauron*?

I mean, he's not a "person", at least not anymore, but he used to be. And he's not a *native* of Mordor, so he fits those criteria...

No.

Ok, here's a hint: it's not so much a he as a they, although I think we only officially encounter one in the story. How's that? I've got one more hint up my sleeve, but I'll wait to see if that one helps first.
