After awakening in Hildorien at the dawn of the Sun, some mortals fled the influence of Morgoth and traveled west. In the First Age they allied with the Elves and formed the Three Houses of the Edain. In the Second Age they were given the island of Numenor and became a great civilization commanding land and sea, and eventually the descendants of those Men came to Middle-earth to create the kingdoms of Gondor and Arnor.

Though longer-lived and accounted more noble and knowledgeable than other Men, history has shown the Men of the West to be capable of causing great harm and calamity when their prideful hearts turn to evil, leading to such events as the Downfall of Numenor and the shattering of Arnor into three lesser kingdoms.
