Indor, a man of Dor-lómin in the First Age, was the father of Aerin.[1]

[edit] Other Versions of the Legendarium

In the earliest versions of the legendarium, Indor was the father of Peleg, in turn the father of Tuor. Therefore like Tuor he probably belonged to the House of the Swan.[2] In The Silmarillion Tuor's grandfather is Galdor the Tall.[3]
