A Man of Gondor, and one of the Guard of the Citadel in Minas Tirith,
Beregond risked his life to save Faramir, the younger son of Denethor
the Steward of Gondor. Through his actions, Beregond managed to
delay long enough to save Faramir's life, but in the process he
broke several of the rules governing the Guard of the Citadel. He
was removed from the Guard, and marched with the Host of the West.
After the victory, it was Aragorn's judgment that Beregond would
not be allowed to rejoin the Guard, but he became the captain of
the White Company, the guard of Faramir, in Ithilien, because what
he did was for love of Faramir. Beregond risked his life with this deed, as of old the punishment was death.
