He served under King Minardil, not much is known about his life but it is assured that his actions had a tremendous effect on the future history of Middle-earth. He was a Man of noble Númenórean heritage, the originator of the House of Húrin from where Minardil's heirs came by tradition to select their own Stewards. He probably died in the Great Plague of 1636.[1][2]
