Centuries ago, an alliance of Men and Elves was forged to defeat the forces of Mordor. When the fallen Wizard Saruman sent his legions to destroy the people of Rohan, the Lady Galadriel of Lothlórien honoured the spirit of this ancient pact, sending Elf bowmen to bolster the beleaguered defenders of Helm’s Deep, where the Rohirrim made their last stand.
Leading the Galadhrim was the Silvan Elf Haldir, march warden of Lórien and a great warrior, as skilled with sword as he was with bow. Buying time for the retreating Rohirrim at great cost, Haldir and his courageous Elves defended the Deeping Wall even as Saruman’s Uruk-hai breached and swarmed over them. Haldir himself stood upon the top of the wall, resisting an endless river of bloodthirsty Uruks as he covered Aragorn’s withdrawal to the Keep, resolute and fearless to the very end.
