|Birth||Second Age |
|Death||Second Age |
|Parentage||Buldar and Elmar|
Hazad married late, due to the admiration he had for his late mother, Elmar. He fathered many children, including Tal-Elmar, which was his seventeenth child.
Though he found pride in the number of his descendants, his greatest joy was his beard, long over five feet and, unlike his sons, ruly and close to him all the time. He was described as "short, though, harsh-tongued, heavy-handed and quick to violence". 
Some analysts have noticed the similarity of Hazad with Dwarvish Khazâd, "Dwarves", and Adûnaic hazad, "seven". The name would then either mean "Dwarf (bearded, smaller one)" or "Seventh child", however, this remains speculation.
