Andriel is one of the three main characters of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. She is an Elven Lore-master from Rivendell.[1]



Life as a Lore-master

Concept Art of Andriel.
Andriel was born in Rivendell, and already in her youth she was skilled in healing and Magic. Elrond taught her more about magic and lore, while Elladan and Elrohir taught her about weapons and combat. While living in Rivendell she met Aragorn and Gandalf. After her training was complete she was sent many times to the wilderness of Eriador and Rhovanion by Elrond, to gather information about the world. Therefore, she has wandered much through the regions surrounding Rivendell. During these wanderings she has made contact with the Rangers of the North, including Halbarad and Eradan.[1]

In September T.A. 3018 she accompenied Gildor Inglorion to the Emyn Beraid, to look in the Palantír, and visit their kin in Lindon. Near Bree, Andriel got a premonition that something would happen in the south. She left the company and travelled through the Andrath to Sarn Ford. There she did speak with Halbarad, who did have the same feelings and had ordered his men to make barricades.[2]

Andriel, Eradan and Farin overhear the conservation of the Witch-king and Agandaûr.

War of the Ring

When the Nazgûl attacked the guard that morning Andriel assisted the Rangers, together with Eradan and Farin. They were defeated and many of the rangers were killed. Shortly after the attack the Witch-king meets with Agandaûr. Where the latter tells he had summoned the Orcs of the Misty Mountains and has assembled an army in Fornost. The Witch-king sends him back to Fornost, to attack immediatly.[3]

Halbarad sent her, together with Eradan and Farin, to Bree, where they have to warn Aragorn. The three companions meet him in the Prancing Pony. After they told him about the conservation, he sends them immediatly to Fornost to stop Agandaûr before he attacks.[3]

The three travelled to Fornost Erain, where they fought their way to the citadel, where Agandaûr was, with the help of Elladan and Elrohir. However, before they could strike down Agandaûr, he escaped on the back of a fell beast. Though Beleram, the Great Eagle they had rescued from Agandaûr's orcs, tried to stop him, the Black Númenórean conjured a storm and escaped to Carn Dûm.


"...It is a long tale..." — Aragorn

Her main weapon is a staff, which she uses for both melee- and ranged combat. One of her abilities makes it possible to create a magical shield that protects her and the other members of her fellowship.[4] She is also able to use a blade.


It is possible that Andriel is a Sindarin name. The "and" prefix means "long", while riel (as in "Galadriel") means "garlanded-maiden". As such, Andriel's name could be translated to mean "long-garlanded maiden".
