This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emily discuss Chapter 22 of The Silmarillion, “Of the Fall of Doriath.”

Characters:

Húrin – brother of Huor, father of Túrin, has been tortured by Morgoth for the last 28 years

Morwen – Húrin’s wife, was lost in the confusion of Glaurung’s smoke

Turgon – lord of Gondolin, once upon a time was friends with Húrin

Thorondor – lord of the eagles of Manwe

Mîm – the petty dwarf who betrayed Túrin last chapter

Thingol – elf lord of Doriath, in possession of a Silmaril

Melian – maia lady of Doriath.

Beren and Luthien – our disney princesses, got the silmaril from Morgoth, Beren died and came back, Luthien became human to live with him.

Dior – son of Beren and Luthien, grandchild of Thingol and Melian, making him human, elf, and maia.

The sons of Feanor – As a collective. They swore a very very serious oath to pursue the Silmarils at all costs, and that’s why we’re in this fucking mess.
