Guritz was an orc captain who served Gothmog during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. He wore a helmet with a skull impaled on a spike, but the only weapon he is seen wielding is a two-handed scythe. He fled the charging Rohirrim and went with a band of orcs to the docks to mock the late-arriving pirates aboard the Corsairs' ships. He was startled when Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and the first wave of the Army of the Dead jumped from the ships and attacked him and the other orcs. He was killed by Gimli.
