His Quenya name was Arakáno ("High Commander"), named so partially for his impetuous character. Argon set foot on Middle-earth with his father and brothers, but he was killed during the Battle of the Lammoth. Argon distinguished himself during the fighting by hewing a path through his foes and slaying the captain of the Orcs.
Other versions of the Legendarium
Argon does not appear in the published Silmarillion at all, as he only came to light in very late writings by Tolkien. His character was developed as Tolkien devised the genealogies. At first he fell in the fighting at Alqualondë and then he perished while crossing the Helkaraxë before his death was set in the Battle of the Lammoth.
