- "But there are some of us still who go abroad for the gathering of news and the watching of our enemies, and they speak the languages of other lands. I am one. Haldir is my name."
- ― Haldir
Haldir was one of the Galadhrim; unlike his brothers, Rúmil and Orophin, Haldir had traveled outside Lórien and knew Westron. He and his companions are described as wearing grey hooded cloaks and living on flets in the trees.
Haldir was accompanied by his brothers between 15 and 16 February, T.A. 3019 when they encountered the Fellowship of the Ring who arrived in Lórien. His brothers interacted little with the Fellowship because they spoke little of the Common Speech. He treated Gimli rather poorly due to bad relations between Elves and Dwarves. He made him go blindfolded through the wood until Galadriel said he did not have to.
