Race/Species: Man

Type/Kind: Dunadan of Gondor

Dates: late Third Age

Description:

A keeper of the storehouse for the Third Company of the Guards of the Citadel, responsible for dispensing foods between meals:
'And now for our manger,' said Beregond, and he led Pippin back to the citadel, and so to a door in the north side of the great tower. There they went down a long cool stair into a wide alley lit with lamps. There were hatches in the walls at the side, and one of these was open.

'This is the storehouse and buttery of my company1 of the Guard.' said Beregond. 'Greetings, Targon!' he called through the hatch. 'It is early yet, but here is a newcomer that the Lord has taken into his service. He has ridden long and far with a tight belt, and has had sore labour this morning, and he is hungry. Give us what you have!'

They got there bread, and butter, and cheese and apples: the last of the winter store, wrinkled but sound and sweet; and a leather flagon of new-drawn ale, and wooden platters and cups. They put all into a wicker basket and climbed back into the sun....

Notes
1 Beregond laughed.... 'Neither office nor rank nor lordship have I, being but a plain man of arms of the Third Company of the Citadel.'
