Hobbit Heartache Edit

Arathorn appears at the meeting of the White Council but isn't heard from again until *The Fellowship of Bilbo Baggins*,when he rescues Lila Fowler and Lynne Henry from a tamed warg. Later on,he joins the Company of the Ring and leads it through Moria. Arathorn later uses the feälutîn spell to ban "Saruman",who is really the Nazgul Ren,from Isengard. Following this,he leads Rohirric soldiers and several Sweet Valley students through the Scada Pass to come to the relief of Minas Tirith. After the Ring War,Arathorn serves as Aragorn's regent in Minas Tirith while the latter grows to age. Unfortunately,Arathorn met his end at the Battle of Snowbourne,dying in the arms of his son. After Aragorn became King,he buried his father in Lothlorien with the permission of Galadriel and Celeborn.
