The Haradrim hail from the southernmost lands of Middle-earth, where the landscape is dominated by serpent-infested plains and arid deserts. They are a cruel race of Men, their hearts long ago hardened by the weight of a bloody history and their destiny tied irrevocably to that of Sauron. While they are not bound by his rule like many of his vassals, they choose to fight alongside his armies out of enmity with Gondor. When the Haradrim put aside their petty squabbling and unite under one banner, they do so in numbers that rival the armies of Mordor itself. Swarms of lightly armoured warriors descend upon their foes, peppering them to death with poisoned arrows or attacking them with long, barbed spears. What they lack in terms of skill and training, the men of Harad more than make up for with barbaric cruelty.
Life amongst the perpetually warring tribes of Harad has always been hard, for even when there is no greater conflict, the inter-tribal raids grant little peace, and such continual warfare has left the menfolk hardened to the arts of battle.
