|Fate||Slain by Forlong during the Siege of Minas Tirith|
One of the Uruk-hai that lived in the dark region of Mordor during the Third Age, Gartor was very anxious in wanting to lay waste on Gondor. As the War of the Ring began when Sauron was awar of the One Ring's presence, Gartor was involved in leading a large number of troops in taking the ruined city of Osgiliath. Despite Mordor's success in taking the city, Gartor had recently killed a Gondorian soldier and really fancied the shiny armor. He took the armor and dressed himself with it. He had to retreat when Gondor's armies were overwhelming the enemy and managed to reclaim the city.
Throughout the War of the Ring, Gartor had been stationed in the city of Minas Morgûl where he awaited further instructions from Commander Gothmog. After the Mordor's garrison managed to reclaim Osgiliath once again and set it as their actual base, Gartor was in command of several Mordor battalions and led them towards the city and lay siege. During the siege, Gartor led his troops on one of the towers and engaged the defenders that were trying to hold them off. Gartor avoided the arrows, and slew a few soldiers until he was slain by Forlong.
