Tarandor served in the army of Minas Ithil in the days before the Witch-king's conquest of the city, after Sauron's return to Mordor. He came from a family long devoted to service of Minas Ithil, as many of his forefathers also served in the city's garrison. Before the Witch-king's assault, Tarandor often wished for a chance to serve his kingdom, but his wish was soon fulfilled, and thereafter spent much of his time raiding behind enemy lines.
Tarandor fought against the Witch-king's forces in the Siege of Minas Ithil, but his fate following the fall of the city is unknown.
