Elmar was a woman who lived during the Second Age, mother of Hazad Longbeard and grandmother of Tal-Elmar from the story bearing the same name. She belonged to the "Fell Folk of the East". After a battle Elmar was taken prisoner by Buldar. He brought her to his region, called Agar, and wedded her mostly against her wish. Because of this, she placed a curse on the people of Agar, that they should weaken and fade with time, which eventually happened. She had many sons, of which the youngest and closest to her heart was Hazad. In her memory and due to the fact that he resembled her, Hazad named his youngest son Tal-Elmar.
