"Ha, hmm, my friends, let us go for a walk! I am Bregalad, that is Quickbeam in your language. But it is only a nickname, of course. They have called me that ever since I said yes to an elder Ent before he had finished his question. Also I drink quickly, and go out while some are still wetting their beards. Come with me!"
Bregalad to Merry and Pippin in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Bregalad , or named Quickbeam, was a middle-aged Ent at the time of the War of the Ring. He wasn't as old as Treebeard, as he can be describe as quite young. He guarded the Rowan trees, as he resembled as a rowan himself. He was one of Skinbark's people, and he made his home on the mountain-slopes at the west of Isengard until the Orcs cut down that forest, then he had no choice but moved to an ent-house near Derndingle in the area of Fangorn forest.

BiographyEdit

At the Entmoot, Bregalad lived up to his reputation for hastiness; he was the first Ent that decided to attack Isengard, since Saruman's orcs had destroyed many of his rowan groves, so he was especially angry with it. Seeing that Bregalad's mind had already been make up, Treebeard then sent him to watch over Merry and Pippin while the debate at Entmoot among the other Ents continued. He sang songs and laughed with the Hobbits; they stayed at his ent-house near Derndingle, where the Entmoot was held.

Bregalad later played an important role in the attack on Isengard, as he fought along side with Treebeard, and he nearly captured Saruman himself. After the water from Isen River had flooded Isengard, he stood guard at the bottom of the stairs of Orthanc. After the War of the Ring, his furthur fate is unknown, but he possibly died in Fourth Age.

Quickbeam's appearance in The Lord of the Rings Online.

In The Lord of the Rings Online Quickbeam is found in the grove near Nan Curunir mourning the loss of his tree-friends. He is asking the player to exact vengeance upon Orcs and Uruks and deprive them of the means to hurt even more trees.

In LEGO The Lord of the Rings: The Video Game, the player can choose either using Treebeard or another lighter coloured Ent to destroy Isengard, which was assumed as Quickbeam. Both of them have the same abilities and speed.

EtymologyEdit

His Sindarin name translates roughly as "Quickbeam" (from bragol and galad which means "sudden" and "tree"). He received this nickname when he answered "yes" before an elder [[Ent had finished asking the question; this also showed his "hasty" temper for his race.
