Fuinur was a Man of Númenor who fell under the influence of Sauron during the time the Dark Lord dwelt on that island. Fuinur sailed east to Middle-earth, apparently with a companion named Herumor, and settled in the southern region known as the Harad. These two became lords in Middle-earth who served Sauron after he returned to Mordor, and held power over the Haradrim.

Etymology

Fuinur apparently means "Man of Shadow" in Quenya (from fuinë, 'shadow', and -ur, a masculine suffix).

Fuinur is misprint as Fuinar in the Silmarillion appendix.
