Ulfang the Black was the father of Ulfast, Ulwarth, and Uldor. An Unfaithful Easterling Warrior, he was the High-chieftain of the Ulbarim (S. "Homeless Host"). His people entered Beleriand soon after the Dagor Bragollach (S. "Battle of Sudden Flame") and, like the clan of Bór, decided to reside in peace in the realm held by the sons of Feanor. He befriended and aided Caranthir, although he was actually a spy in the service of Morgoth. The Black Enemy used Ulfang's information to plot the destruction of the Elven Kingdoms, but the Black Easterling never lived to see the results of his evil ploy. A sudden illness claimed Ulfang on the eve of the Battle of Unnumbered Tears (S. "Nimaeth Amoediad"). His holdings passed to his three greedy sons, spawning legends that ascribe his death to their hand.
