[edit] History

During the early stages of the War of the Ring Belarum was sent by his lord, Gwaihir, to search for news. While he flew over Fornost he saw an army of Orcs and Goblins assembling. There he was taken out of the air by siege weapons and Orc sorcerers, and captured.[1]

Shortly after his capture Eradan, Andriel and Farin enter Fornost and, after killing jailers, free him. After introducing each other they make a plan to destroy siege weapons.[1] Belarum attracted the attention of the Orcs and Goblins while Eradan, Andriel and Farin make their way up to the battlements and destroy the siege weapons.[2] Belarum meets Eradan, Andriel and Farin again at the outer wards of the city where he thanks his new friends. In return Belarum aids them in their mission to kill Agandaûr. He also tells them that he has seen two Half-elves, Elladan and Elrohir.[3]

At the Citadel of Fornost, Belarum aids Eradan, Andriel and Farin protecting Elladan and Elrohir, who try to remove the magic which protects the citadel gate. When the others go inside, Belarum remains to stop reinforcements from entering the citadel.[4] When Agandaûr attempts to flee on the back of a Fell beast, Belarum pursues him. Agandaûr, however, summons a thunderstorm. A lightning hits Belarum, and he returns to the citadel tower. Here he discuss the events in Fornost with Eradan, Andriel, Farin, Elladan and Elrohir. With Tharzog - leader of the Orcs - dead and Agandaûr fled, they agree that their mission is done. Belarum returns to the Misty Mountains to inform Gwaihir.[5]
