I read everywhere that Turin, Hurin, Beren, and all the others get more respect. However Tuor was the light version to his cousin. I felt that his story was one of the best. Lost both his parents to war or grief. Raised by elves. Eventually became a badass and created his own guild for warriors to face off against the orcs and humans slaves of Morgoth. Eventually went to the hidden elven capital, Gondolin. Given a special armory by one of the Valar. Was one of the only humans to marry an elf. The daughter of the King of Gondolin. Help produce one of the coolest warriors and half elf ever, Earendil. He saved most of the city from destruction. He slew five BALROGS. Also became the ancestor of the numenoreans. He is the grandfather of both Elrond and Elros.
