Dairkan (Ad. "Dark-hold") was a Black Númenórean from Umbar. He was tall and muscular, with black hair, lightly tanned skin, and shrewd grey eyes. His Karma helm boasting gilded scale emphasizes his impressive stature.

A clever and cool tactician, Dairkan's chief ambition was to destroy Arthedain. He was driven by a grandiose vision of ruling a vast empire in the service of the Necromancer. He had, however, never allowed his ambition to cloud his judgment. A master of intrigue, Dairkan was always one step ahead of the other generals who planned to supplant him. To the Orcs, who couldn't pronounce his true name, he was known as "Dancu."
