A Mahud seen in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Mahud was the name for the Men of Far Harad who rode, or "piloted", the Mûmaks (Oliphaunts).

History Edit

The Men of Far Harad were given no specific name even by J.R.R. Tolkien, but Games-Workshop decided to call them "Mahud", perhaps inspired by Indian elephant-tamers called "mahout". As depicted in Peter Jackson's movies, they were the Men who first tamed the Mûmakil, but also they have a population of Half-trolls with pupil-black skin, blood-red tongues, and snowy-white eyes. The "Mahud" dwelt in jungles that lay in the south of Harad.
