Mablung of the Heavy Hand was a captain and marchwarden to King Elu Thingol of Doriath.

History

Together with Beleg Cúthalion he was one of the great captains of the Sindar, and he was part of the Hunting of the Wolf together with Beren.

Mablung became captain of the guard of Doriath after Beleg left to seek Túrin. When Morwen Eledhwen, who dwelt in Doriath at the time, learned of the fall of Nargothrond and that her son Túrin might be there, she wished to seek him out. Mablung was assigned by Thingol to guard her on their way. Unknown to both Mablung and Morwen until too late, Nienor daughter of Morwen, had joined them. Mablung was unable to prevent them both from getting ensnared in the traps of Glaurung the Dragon. Mablung hid from Glaurung and then searched the sacked Nargothrond, finding no sign of Túrin.

Glaurung when returning mocked Mablung, sparing his life, and informing him that he had now lost also Morwen and Nienor. Nienor was found again by Mablung, but he later lost her again when she, her mind wiped by Glaurung, fled from Mablung during an Orc attack. Defeated Mablung returned to Doriath, but he spent years afterwards searching for Morwen and Nienor.

Mablung went to Brethil when he learned Glaurung was there, and there met Túrin. By admitting Nienor was lost he caused Túrin to realize that Níniel his wife had actually been his sister Nienor, and Túrin killed himself.

Etymology

Mablung is probably an epessë rather than a name. It translates as "Heavy Hand".
