Aravir was the fourth Chieftain of the Dúnedain.
He was raised by Elrond in Rivendell while his father Aranuir dwelt in the wild. At his father's death in TA 2247, Aravir in turn became the Chieftain of the Dúnedain. During his rule the Watchful Peace slowly came to an end as Sauron returned to the north-west of Middle-earth, although his presence remained unknown.
