Saruman is the fallen White Wizard and one of the Istari, five Maiar who came to Arda in human form to help in the conflict against Sauron. Eventually, Saruman allied himself with Sauron, hoping to betray him once he had learned his weakness so he could establish himself as ruler of Middle Earth. Saruman's power was destroyed before his plans could come to fruition, and he was killed when Grima Wormtongue snuck up behind him and slit his throat.
