Dagnir (died F.A. 460) was a member of Barahir's Outlaw Band.

History

Dagnir fought in the Dagor Bragollach under the command Barahir. He was part of a small group of men loyal to their lord that survived.[1] The survivors formed a small band and lived as outlaws in Dorthonion, near Tarn Aeluin.

They lived in hiding for some time, until Morgoth's agents captured Gorlim and coerced him into giving the location of their hideaway. Orcs were sent to raid it, and succeeded. Dagnir and the other outlaws were killed. Only Beren survived, as he had been away on an errand.[2]

Etymology

The Sindarin name Dagnir means "slayer" (or "bane") from dag + (n)dîr, cf. Dagnir Glaurunga "'Glaurung's Bane".[3]
