Radagast the Brown is one of the Istari, maiar sent to lead the fight against the dominion of Sauron in about the year Third Age 1000. Radagast is his name in Westron. In Aman, it was Aiwendil. Aiwendil was included in the mission of the Istari at the insistence of Yavanna, the vala most concerned with plants and growing things.
Upon arriving in Middle-Earth, Radagast quickly lost interest in the mission of the Istari to bring hope and light to the beleagured Free Peoples, and instead became concerned with the lore of birds and animals and plants. He took up residence at the tower of Rhosgobel, in the eaves of Mirkwood near the Carrock, and from there wandered the paths of the world, delighting in the natural world and coming into very little contact with elves or men.
A member of the Council of the Wise, Radagast does not seem to have often taken part in it's meetings, and was the unwitting cause of Gandalf's capture by Saruman, and the equally unwitting cause of his rescue by Gwaihir.
No tale is told of Radagast's fate after the War of the Ring, but it seems certain that he remained in residence in Rhosgobel well into the Fourth Age, becoming increasingly removed from the world of mortals, much as had happened to Tom Bombadil ages before.
1. In a letter in 1956, Tolkien said that the two Blue Wizards who had travelled into the east eventually became founders of orders of magic. Perhaps this is the fate of Radagast, too. But it should be noted that one of the greatest of the Valar, Yavanna, begged for Radagast to be included with the Istari.
Perhaps Yavanna had a greater goal in mind, quite apart from the mission to aid the Free Peoples. Yavanna was always concerned for the plants and animals, that they should have respect and protection. Whatever Radagast's true mission was, Tolkien does not tell.
