Are the Ringwraiths in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Dementors in Harry Potter series of similar species?
In LOTR, the Ringwraiths were men who succumbed to the power of the rings Sauron created and can act like humans, although they search for the one ring of power.
In Harry Potter, the Dementors are creatures that suck the soul out of a person and make it seem like there is never going to be happiness again.
Both are beings who are wrapped in black robes that obscure their faces, hands and bodies and send out a sense of doom to whoever they are pursuing.
While I am probably forgetting some things, I think it is possible for the Ringwraiths and the Dementors to be of the same race of being. Would you agree?
