Saruman is ADL's nephew. His parents were huge fans of the Lord of the Rings, and Saruman was the only name from the books and movies that none of their other children had.
Saruman is extremely shy. He dislikes the majority of his siblings, as they constantly teased him growing up.
Saruman was the last born to a family of countless children, and because of this, was constantly bullied by his older siblings. When he grew to the age of ten, he got sick of the constant bullying, and ran away. He knew his uncle had moved to Club Penguin, so he got onto the next ship to the island leaving Club Ducky.
When Saruman got to Club Penguin, he was convinced to join the JADE Alliance by Jay, with the promise that it would help him get closer to his uncle. Shortly after meeting ADL in a battle, he quit the JADE Alliance, and joined the PSA. He is currently living with ADL on his cruise ship.
After moving in with ADL, he formed a band with Quack Quack where he plays the tambourine, and Quack Quack plays the maracas.
