A Man of the People of Hador, who deserted the field of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, and fled into the south to live as an outlaw. He was the leader of the Gaurwaith, the outlaw band that Túrin joined after leaving Doriath, though Túrin soon took over Forweg's captaincy of the outlaws.
'Forweg' appears to be an alias, chosen presumably to reflect this outlaw's origins in the North (presumably he came originally from Hithlum, since he's identified as one of the People of Hador). His real name is never revealed.
