Man > Tuor

    Tuor was chosen to aid Ulmo, carrying his prophecy of warning to King Turgon of Gondolin. His companion, also chosen, was the elf, Voronwe the mariner.
    Tuor, although human, married Idril who was the daughter of Turgon, the elven-king of Gondolin.
    Their son was Earendil, who brought about the reconciliation between the Valar and Middle-earth and the resulting downfall of Morgoth.
