The son of Angrim and a follower of Barahir, Gorlim the Hapless was an Adan of the First House. He never knew of the death of his beloved wife Eilinel, thinking her captured, and he went about his days in Dorthonion in perpetual sorrow. When Sauron captured Gorlim, he fooled him into believing that Eilinel was still alive by magically changing one of his Phantoms into her guise. This ruse spurred Gorlim into tragically betraying Barahir and his fellow outlaws. Sauron subsequently executed the poor Ranger.
