The ancestors of Eradan were members of a noble family from Númenor, who served Elendil. After the Downfall of Númenor they went in exile to Middle-earth and lived in Arnor, where they served the heirs of Elendil.

After he was grown up he started his training to be a Ranger. After only two years he completed his training and started to fight the Orcs of the Misty Mountains and Trolls who roamed the eas tof Eriador. Eradan gained a high reputation as swordsman and archer, and his skills as outdoorsman and tracker were exceptional high.
When Aragorn doubled the defenses of the Shire Eradan served as one of the guards of Sarn Ford for many years under the command of Halbarad. In T.A. 3016 Aragorn became more active in the Shire's defense. In this time Eradan impressed Aragorn with his skills and bravery. Eradan accompenied Aragorn on many of his travels, on which Aragorn taught him even more about tracking.
