Physical Description
GenderMale

Haldar was a Man of the Haladin who dwelled in Thargelion. He was the son of Haldad and brother of Haleth and had a son, Haldan.

His family survived an Orc attack against his people. His father built a stockade in defense. In the ensuing siege their food was exhausted, and Haldad was slain during a sortie against the attacking Orcs. Haldar rushed to recover his father's body, and was slain as well.

Haldar thus did not live to succeed his father as Chieftain of the Haladin. It was his sister Haleth who took up the rule of her people, but she died childless, and Haldar's son Haldan and his descendants became the rulers of the people later known as the House of Haleth.[2]
