Bór's people came into Beleriand after the Dagor Bragollach. He and his sons Borlad, Borlach, and Borthand swore allegiance to Maedhros and Maglor. He was one of the few leaders of the Eastern Tribes of Men to remain faithful to the Eldar during the Nirnaeth Arnoediad (Battle of Unnumbered Tears). This loyalty came at the cost of his life. The elves, grateful for his loyalty, posthumously awarded him the title "Faithful".
