Little is known about Khand or its people, other than that they were called Variags and that they were allied to Mordor.
Khand was under the influence of Mordor, and twice came into the history of Gondor: first in T.A. 1944 when the Variags together with the Wainriders attacked Gondor, and later during the War of the Ring.
The meaning of Khand is unknown, probably it was a word in the language of the inhabitants of that region.[source?]
