House of the Tree
During the Fall of Gondolin, they were one of the two main kindreds that first hurled themselves upon the Balrogs and Orcs upon the destruction of the Gate of Gondolin. They guarded the western entrance to the Arch of Inwë. Many escaped the slaughter with Tuor, and were scouts ahead of the women and children, for they had "eyes like cats in the dark", later dwelling at the Mouths of Sirion. They are often referred to as the People or Folk of Galdor.
