Physical Description

The Captain of the Haven was the leader of the Corsairs of Umbar during the time of the Steward Ecthelion II of Gondor.

Sometime between 2957 and T.A. 2980, Aragorn (in the guise of Thorongil) came to Gondor and during that time counselled Ecthelion concerning the rebellious nature of Umbar. Ecthelion agreed that Thorongil could send a small fleet; arriving at night they burnt the ships of the unprepared Corsairs whilst Thorongil himself killed the Captain of the Haven.[1]
