Éothain

A Rider under Éomer’s command

A member of Éomer's éored that overran the orcs who had captured Merry and Pippin at the fringe of Fangorn Forest, and later encountered Aragorn and his companions on the wide fields of Rohan. Éothain was not as trusting as his commander, scoffing at the idea that hobbits even existed, and arguing against the gift of horses to the three companions.
