The Dúnadan Corunir (Sindarin for Cunning-man) long years ago made company with a stubborn Captain named Golodir who travelled to Angmar, despite Aragorn's forbidding. The Ranger captain had heard rumour about Carn Dûm being inhabited again, by descendants of Rhudaur. That company was not heard of since, but...
Recently a message from Corunir came through the hostile lands of Angmar and aid will be sent.
Later in the Epic storyline Corunir will rejoin his Kinship and travel southwards, thus appearing at yet other locations. He is described by Golodir as being "relatively plump, for a Ranger".
Recently he was able to get across message to his commander, as well as sending mails to a few of the Free Peoples, making known he was alive and his location. Though he has not heard of Captain Golodir and the troops that followed, Corunir has not given up hope on them but he cannot himself surpass a border of the Witch-king of Angmar's design.
