Baranor (video game character) is a concept which has only appeared in an adaptation of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.
The name Baranor refers to more than one character, item or concept. For a list of other meanings, see Baranor (disambiguation).

Baranor was the father of Eradan, one of the main characters of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, and the brother of Dunhir. Although he doesn't make an actual appearence in War in the North, he is mentioned in the backstory of Eradan.[1]

History

Baranor is a descendent of a noble family from Númenor, who were loyal to Elendil. When the Valar destroyed Númenor, they went into exile to Middle-earth. They lived in Arnor, where they served the Kings of Arnor and, after the fall of Arnor, the Chieftains of the Dúnedain.

Baranor lived in the Angle, where he served as a Ranger, and had one son, Eradan. In the time of Aragorn he was lost while patrolling the Misty Mountains. Afterwards his son was fostered by his brother, Dunhir.[1]
