|Fate||Struck by Éomer Éadig during the Battle of Pelennor Fields|
Suladân, also known as the Serpent Lord, was a Human Haradrim who lived in the southern region of Harad. During the Battle of Pelennor Fields, Suladân led 1000 Haradrim archers that mounted on 20 Oliphaunts that charged against the Rohirrim and the Rangers of Ithilien while General Yezmin led her army to reinforce in taking Minas Tirith. While having fun killing a number of Rohirrim and Rangers, Suladân was struck down by Éomer Éadig.
Born in the southern region of Harad, Suladân was known to be the most fearful Haradrim lord that spread terror the grassy lands of Gondor, Rohan, and Dale. He was considered a mysterious being, perhaps even a monster of sorts, by the soldiers of Gondor, a shadow that would strike like an assassin and kill without fault, and even by his own loyal troops. At the start of the War of the Ring, Suladân and his people pledged their service to the Dark Lord Sauron, who had returned and was ready to make his war the last and cover the entire world in shadow. Suladân had always been worshipful to Sauron and believed him to be a god.
Ready for war, he led a full battlion of 1000 Haradrim archers that rode on 20 Oliphaunts while his second-in-command General Yezmin led an army of 18,000 Haradrim warriors. Reaching Gondor at the beginning of the Battle of Pelennor Fields, Suladân blew his horn and prepared to attack the armies of Gondor and Rohan. He was also willing to kill Théoden since he held a grudge against him in the past. While trying to find the king, he killed a large number of Rohirrim riders during this time, but eventually met his own demise at the hands of the king's nephew, Éomer Éadig, who was able to hurl a spear into the Chief's chest.
