Forhend was a Man of Brethil, and a guard of the Crossings of Teiglin, in the First Age.


Forhend was one of the guards under the command of Manthor who came across weary Húrin in Haudh-en-Elleth, immediately after the events recounted in The Children of Húrin. When Manthor, who recognized Húrin, left towards Obel Halad (the Hall of the Haladin) to assist Húrin in his errand, he took only him and Forhend along. The others of the Guard, such as Sagroth and Avranc, were to stay behind.

It is possible that Forhend was of some familial relation to Forweg, one of the outlaws encountered earlier by Túrin Turambar in lands near to Brethil.
