"Every name spelled wrong in 'Rings', a mini-Balrog gets its wings."
Philosopher at Large

The mini-Balrog was the first mini ever, originating from the Official Fanfiction University of Middle-earth. This miniature fire-demon eats raw eggs, bacon and fangirls and is very adept at breaking up fangirl stampedes. They could, however, be adopted if one e-mailed Miss Cam and asked nicely. Mini-Balrogs are in high demand, so there is only one per customer (PPC agents may have two).

However, she gave up official adoptions some time back, and in 2008 another Boarder stepped in to help out, starting up an official Adoption Agency for the unadopted mini-Balrogs.

Canon Origin[]

Main article: Balrog

Balrogs are huge fire demons, serving Dark Lords throughout the history of Middle-earth. They've killed numerous good guys (although one got better soon after).


For a would-be complete list of all known mini-Balrogs, owned and unowned, see this page.

The following list only contains minis adopted by PPC Boarders or agents. Cassie is still in charge of unadopted minis. Agents with no published missions are listed beside their Boarders, mostly for the sake of having them written down somewhere.
