The Dunlendings (referred to as Southrons by people from the north) are the remains of an old human race. They are related to the people of Bree and the spirits at the paths of the dead. They are enemies with the people of Rohan and therefore they faught on Saruman´s side in the war of the ring. Some of them mixed their blood with the orcs and that created half-orcs.
