Golodir is an experienced captain of the Rangers of the North, considered great by those who met him. However, years ago he defied Aragorn's command and brought a company north, into Angmar, and since then not a word has been heard, neither of him or his company. Until recently...
The other day, a falcon from Esteldín arrived to Aragorn, bearing a message that at least one member of Golodir's company is still alive, at Aughaire. Those tales are told in Book 6, how the east of Angmar became unreachable and Golodir and his army may be alive, or not, somewhere behind the malicious powers of the stones. Continuing in Book 7 many of Golodir's company is found at the hidden cave named Gath Forthnír, and among them his daughter, Lorniel. However, Golodir himself is not yet found; his fate is revealed throughout the epic storyline, covering several books. Eventually Golodir once again serves his chieftain, Aragorn, and will do so at yet other locations.
Golodir is first met somewhere within Carn Dûm where he is held prisoner, being rescued at the cost of his daughter's life. From there he is brought to his room within Gath Forthnír in Angmar. During this period Golodir will be very happy to get back the reforged sword, his trusted Dúnachar.

But the ride here was a marvel, and I could feel the weight of the past falling from my shoulders with the feel of the breeze upon my face. Legimbod delighted in the speed, and I delighted with him! The southward journey will do both of us some good. I am ready to be off again."

Travelling through the Paths of the Dead and Western Gondor with Aragorn and the Grey Company, Golodir can later be found in the port-city of Pelargir in Lebennin.
Afterwards, he takes part in the Battle of Pelennor Fields.
