"Southerners" are an ill-defined group of people, generally referred to as such by Bree-landers. These men came up from the Greenway into Bree out of lands to the south around Dunland. They had come up into the Bree-lands looking for a place of peace from the unrest in their homes, though a few such as the Squint-eyed Southerner were in fact spies of Saruman and were not to be trusted.[1]
