The younger brother of Hurin, Huor (Tal."fiery Spirit") was a valiant fighter and a friend of the Elves. He was the brave son of Galdor and Hareth, and but a mere youth when he joined his brother to fight the Orcs. Ulmo himself rescued them from the clutches of the Black Enemy's minions, and they made their way into the secret land of Gondolin — the first mortals to see the Hidden Realm. Turgon accepted them and a great alliance was forged. At his brother's side, Huor led a section of the army of Hithlum in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad (Q. "Battle of Tears Unnumbered"). He predicted the salvation of the Elves and Men by Earendil, and managed to convince Turgon to retreat into Gondolin. While covering his ally's withdrawal, he struck in the eye by a poisoned Orc-arrow and died.
