Harandil Thundersword was a knight and a member of the Thundersword noble family in Cormyr who rode with Princess Alusair Obarskyr. He was softly spoken.[1]

In the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR, Alusair and her knights were operating in the Stonelands, pursuing a bold orc band that had raided a caravan east of Eveningstar; in six days of pursuit, they'd killed a hydra, a "fire lizard", and three chimeras. They were on a high meadow north of Startop Crag when the knights impetuously pursued the orcs into an ambush, and a few were killed. Alusair rallied her forces to defeat the orcs and their dark naga master.[2] When Alusair said warriors cleaned up after themselves, Harandil added that "or they soon die", agreeing with her plan to clear the Zhentarim threat to the area.[1]
