Race: Black Numenoreans

Numenorean   The origin of the first Black Numenoreans is in the latter half of the Second Age. Lovers of power over lesser Men, these Numenoreans became corrupted by Sauron, coming to hate all good peoples. They settled in Middle Earth mainly in Umbar and surrounding coastal regions. After Sauron's downfall at the beginning of the Third Age, the bloodlines of these Numenorean descendants mixed with other peoples, especially the Haradrim over which they had dominion. During the first millenia of the age, they proved strong enemies of the Dunedain of Gondor, but were permanently scattered when Umbar was taken in TA 933, and when the subsequent siege was broken in TA 1050. As men, they are imposing in their height, with angular features. They also make strong warriors, proud of their heritage. Thus they still retain many of the ancient characteristics of the Edain, like their cousins the Dunedain.
