Brandir, known as Brandir the Lame, was a Lord of the Haladin in the First Age who dwelt in the Forest of Brethil which was west of Doriath in the settlement of Ephel Brandir, in Middle-earth.

BiographyEdit

Brandir was born in FA 465 to Handir and Beldis who was a woman of the House of Bëor. Brandir was lamed by a leg broken in a misadventure in childhood. His disability resulted the appellations 'The Lame' and 'Clubfoot' being attached to his name. The latter was an insult used by Turin during his confrontation with Brandir following Niënor's death.

Brandir was a man of gentle mood, lover of plants and skilled healer. He was against open war with the Orcs because he hoped to preserve his people by silence and secrecy.

When Túrin Turambar arrived in the Forest of Brethil, Brandir was opposed to him and suspected that Túrin Turambar would bring misfortune onto the community. However he took Túrin, who was dying of grief after the death of Finduilas, into his house and tended him until he recovered. Later on Brandir also accepted the woman Nienor, whom soon he secretly fell in love with.

During Túrin's foray to kill the dragon Glaurung, Brandir observed the drama from afar and overheard Glaurung telling Nienor who she really was. Brandir reported this news later to Túrin, who disbelieved Brandir and killed him in anger in FA 499.[2][3][4]

EtymologyEdit

Brandir means 'lofty or noble man' in Sindarin.[citation needed]
