He and his brother saved their mother Celebrían from orcs, but not before she had received a terrible wound.

During the War of the Ring, he and his brother came to Aragorn's aid with a host of the Rangers of the North. They rode together on the Paths of the Dead, and they fought together at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. He was also at the Black Gate when the War of the Ring ended.

Stayed in Middle-earth when his father and the other ringbearers left for Valinor. He lived in Rivendell with his brother, grandfather Celeborn, and what other elves were still in Middle-earth.

It is not known whether he and Elrohir ever sailed to the Undying Lands.
