    That would be Haldir, if you are referring to the movie.

    Exactly, I answered this same exact question a few weeks ago in this forum, but this forum is meant for the books only, not the movies.

    U don't need to get so defensive, we're simply giving directions.

    No elves died at Helm's Deep in the book, b/c there were never any elves that came there in the firstplace. In the movie, the elves came b/c Peter Jackson (the director) wanted to spice things up a bit. Haldir is the name of the leader who died, although he never died in the books. (And the books are always right), so, in actuality, no elves died during Helm's Deep.

    Again, we aren't accusing you of treason or anything, we're just giving directions to make the forum run easier..........

    Exactly. It isn't called the "Movie forum" for nothing, you know. :D Haha, but no harm done.
    And in case you have forgotten, Haldir was one of the captains of the patrols that, um, patrolled the borders of Lothlórien.
    I think the change in the movie was digestable, because the viewers (who haven't read the book) get a taste of history and unity between the Eldar and the Edain.
    But as you say, wrong forum for this discussion. :rolleyes:

    Just to say something, I am posting on 2/19/03 so this forum could have been moved. But, on the computer I am on right now, it is tellin' me that I am in New Line Cinama's "LOTR" trilogy and to me, that is the movie section!

    In the movie version, Haldir leads a troop of Elves from Lothlorien to help the men at Helms Deep. They all died apparently.

    Screw the book. You've had 50 years to go over it. It's movie time now.

    Get with the program JACK.

    (just kidding)

    Yep, Haldir, who we meet in Lothlorian in the movie version of Fellowship (I don't know if its in the books) is the one who is killed in the Two Towers movie.

    Haldir is a marchwarden of the Galadhrim of Lórien, who guarded its northern borders with his brothers Rúmil and Orophin. When the Fellowship arrived there after fleeing Moria, he became their guide and led them to Caras Galadhon.
