Halbarad was a Dúnedain ranger.

During the War of the Ring Halbarad was sent to the aid of his kinsman Aragorn. He led a thirty-man strong group of Rangers, calling themselves the Grey Company. With them rode Elladan and Elrohir, the sons of Elrond. In the night between the 5th and the 6th of March, the Company met Aragorn at Dol Baran. Halbarad gave his kinsman a standard, which was a gift from Arwen, and a message, summoning him to take the Paths of the Dead.

The Grey Company, now with Gimli and Legolas part of Aragorn's comitatus, passed through the Paths of the Dead, to the Stone of Erech, over Tarlang’s Neck, and on to Pelargir. He captained a Corsair ship and they sailed toward Harlond.

On the 15th of March they arrived on the Pelennor Fields. Halbarad unfurled the standard, and it showed the White Tree of Gondor and the signs of Elendil. He was killed in battle, and would not return to the North.
