Man > Eothain

    Soldier of the East-Mark under Eomer.  Apparently his second-in-command, as Eomer orders Eothain "Tell the eored to assemble on the path, and make ready to ride to the Entwade."  Also, he is the only one to openly speak out against Eomer's lending of the horses, which would certainly not be allowed to any less than a second-in-command.

Reference: Two Towers: "Book" 3.
    (In the Peter Jackson movie, he's a child in Rohan who rides a horse with his sister to escape Saruman's invasion and give news of it to King Theoden.)
