Larnach was one of the Woodmen in the lands south of Teiglin.

History[edit]

Larnach and the other woodmen were harried by the Gaurwaith outlaws from Doriath's western borders, and in a raid by these outlaws, led by Forweg their captain, Larnach's daughter was rescued by Túrin Turambar, under the alias of Neithan. Túrin slew Forweg and rejected Larnach’s daughter’s proposal of marriage.[1]

In his search for Túrin, Beleg Strongbow later came upon the fenced homestead that was Larnach's home, and was told the story.[2]
