Draugluin (died F.A. 465) was the first Werewolf.
Bred from wolves and inhabited with an evil spirit imprisoned by Sauron himself, Draugluin was the sire of all Werewolves of Beleriand, and dwelled with his master in Tol-in-Gaurhoth, the former watchtower of Finrod Felagund, which he aided to conquer.
He was slain by Huan during the Quest for the Silmaril, though he informed Sauron that Huan was present. Beren and Lúthien used his pelt to sneak into Angband.
Draugluin was the sire of Carcharoth and many other Werewolves. It is probable the Wargs of the Third Age were descended from him, as these wolves could speak, suggesting they had fëar. He may have been a fallen Maia.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
|By Ardamir. (Help; more articles)|
Draugluin means "Blue Wolf" in Sindarin, from draug ("wolf") + luin ("blue"), in reference to the color of his pelt.
