Although Athalaina (Old English? "?") had no rank above that of any of the other freeholders of Pinnath Ceren, he commanded great respect and was the closest thing these Eriadorans had to a leader. Athalaina was no friend of the Dúnedain or of any strangers. He was, however, a man of honor who revered the dead buried in the Barrow-downs, some of who were his own distant ancestors.
Athalaina was a great barn of man. Though he stood only 5’11”, he outweighed most Dúnedain, and hardly an ounce of his body was fat. When he was entering his old age he was still hale and could wield his axe with a fury. Athalaina could not be mistaken, for his beard had retained its black color while his hair had turned as white as snow.
