365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 244: Ohtar

Ohtar (S. ‘Warrior’) was the Esquire of Isildur, and one of the three Dúnedain who survived the Battle of the Gladden Fields. Ohtar at first refused to leave his companions, but at Isildur’s command, he escaped with the remains of Narsil, and eventually managed to cross the Misty Mountains and make it into Rivendell. Here Valandil, Isildur’s heir, had been anxiously awaiting news of his father and brothers. During the War of the Ring, Narsil was reforged into Andúril and used in the war against Sauron.
