Haldir is a border guard of Lórien, watching the "northern fences". The movie shows him as more of a commander than is evidenced in the book.

It is known that he has traveled more widely than other Sylvan Elves of Lórien:
"But there are some of us still who go abroad for the gathering of news and the watching of our enemies, and they speak the languages of other lands. I am one. Haldir is my name."

We know little else, except his apparel and wood-craft:
"They were clad in shadowy-grey, and could not be seen among the tree-stems, unless they moved suddenly."
