The case was originally a waterproof scroll case belonging to and ancient royal messenger, and is remarkably robust. Its wood is nearly as hard as stone, but surprisingly lightweight, the wood having been carved from enchanted trees in Lindon by Elves under Círdan. Its original bearer is Feredir’s direct ancestor, and although the history is now lost, even to Feredir, the messenger, Barhador, was a cousin of King Arvedui, the last King of Arnor. It was Barhador who went between Arnor and Gondor as a messenger between his uncle King Araphant of the North Kingdom, and King Ondoher of the South Kingdom, and who delivered the messages concerning marriage and union between the two Kingdoms once more, through the marriage of the Crown Prince Arvedui and Fíriel, Ondoher’s daughter, messages carried in the case.

As having been a faithful and loyal servant, the elderly Barhador enjoyed a special status as King’s Messenger even though he had long since retired by the time of the invasion from Angmar. Following Arvedui’s son, Aranath over the River Lhûn into Lindon, he returned with Aranath, and stood beside his cousin’s son as the latter became the first Chieftain of the Dúnedain.

Feredir is unaware of this history, and it is also unknown to him that he is named for Barhador, after the latter’s inscription on the case. Feredir (née Barhador) has always assumed that it is carved for him.
