Beregond as portrayed by the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game

Beregond son of Baranor was the first Captain of the White Company, the guard of Faramir of Ithilien. He was appointed to this rank after he saved the life of Faramir during the Siege of Minas Tirith in the later Third Age, as described in The Lord of the Rings.

In the novel, he and his son Bergil were also noted for being the guides of Peregrin Took in Minas Tirith. In Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings however, neither of them is included, their deeds transferred to Peregrin and Gandalf.
