Hirluin the Fair

Lord of Pinnath Gelin

A Man of Gondor, the leader of those who dwelt in the Green Hills of Pinnath Gelin, in the distant west of Gondor, during the late Third Age. Curiously, though he was lord of the Green Hills, and his soldiers were clad in green, Hirluin's name seems to mean 'blue lord'. He was one of the many leaders of Men who brought companies to Minas Tirith, and he fought bravely in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, rushing to the aid of Éomer and the Rohirrim. His bravery did not save him, though, and he was slain in that battle, never to return to the Green Hills in the west.
