SOTN Sword of Hador

A family heirloom of the House of Hador in Tolkien Lore. Hador was a Lord of Men during the First Age. Hador, also called in Sindarin Lórindol ("golden-haired") because he had fair blond hair, was the great-great-grandson of Marach, one of the leaders of the Atanatári, and ruled over the House of Marach, which later also became known as the House of Hador. Hador married Gildis and had three children, Glóredhel, Galdor and Gundor.

Under his rule he and his people swore allegiance to Fingolfin, High King of the Noldor, and he was granted the land Dor-lómin in Hithlum to live in the year 423 of the First Age. He also received the Dragon Helm of Telchar, a famed Dwarven-smith from Nogrod, at that time. Hador was given this helm because it was made for dwarven-heads, and none had the size to wear it in the land. Hador was one of the tallest Men in all of Beleriand. All of his line wore the helm until it was lost in the time of his great-grandson Túrin, with the exception of Húrin who was of lesser stature than his fathers (though perhaps the mightiest warrior of mortal men).

Hador was slain during the Dagor Bragollach along with his son Gundor, and the rule of Dor-lómin passed to his son Galdor.

Hador's grandsons were Húrin and Huor, and Húrin's son was Túrin Turambar who slew the dragon Glaurung.

Sword of Hador in CastlevaniaEdit

This sword, like the other swords from Tolkien Lore, only makes an appearance in Symphony of the Night, where it is known as the "Sword of Helge" in the Japanese version.

Appearance in Symphony of the NightEdit

The Sword of Hador is the weakest of the "normal" legendary swords. It is slightly stronger than the Talwar and slightly weaker than Luminous. It has about the same reach and abilities of the Talwar and has no special effects. Unlike the Talwar though (and like stronger similar swords like the Luminous), this sword has a strong aura when swung.

If you are exploring the upper castle for the first time along the right edge and found the Talwar in the Anti-Cathedral, this sword can be the next one you find if you head towards the giant clock room and then down into Death Wing's Lair. It is found in the hidden hallway in the giant room in the center of level. This is the "same" hallway in which the Broadsword was found in Olrox's Quarters.
