Turin Turambar

Turin, son of Hurin, Turambar, The Black Blade. His is one of Tolkien’s most heartbreaking, yet one of the most compelling. Son of the greatest hero among men, driven to avenge himself upon his father’s enemies, cursed by the fates to be the downfall of his house, his friends and the great wyrm Glaurong. I know he is traditionally depicted wearing mostly black, but I like the idea of the first age being more decorative, inspired much by the descriptions of the armaments of Gondolin.
