Aranhir is, during the Tale of the Shipwrecked Mariners events, the Captain of the Ranger ship Gilminuial. A great storm fell upon them and shipwrecked the Gilminuial throwing crew and cargo overboard. Aranhir is found beside the shipwreck, overseeing the repairs by the deckhands. He is worried that crew members Argirion and Mindambeth may be lost.
- "I hope we are able to gather together enough of the lost supplies. The Wardens depend on them."
- "I should have known better than to sail in such weather."
- "It will not be easy, but the Gilminuial will sail again!"
