This week Caitlin, Rachel, and Emily discuss the final chapter in the Quenta Silmarillion.
Eärendil – son of Idril and Tuor, ruled Sirion and married Elwing
Elwing – daughter of Dior, Earendil’s wife, currently holding the silmaril at the start of this chapter
Elrond – their son
Elros – their other, less famous son
Cirdan – the Shipwright, helps Earendil build the Vingilot.
Remaining sons of Fëanor:
Maedhros and Maglor survive the third kinslaying in this chapter.
Ulmo–our Valar of the sea.
Eonwë – herald of Manwë
Manwë – king of the Valar
Morgoth – Big Bad
Thorondor – the king of the giant eagles
Types of Elves/Men/Beings
Valar – first beings in Aun, essentially the gods here
Noldor – Elves who were ruled by Finwe, Feanor’s original people
Vanyar – High elves, the very first clan of elves and also the smallest
Teleri – Led by Elwe and Olwe, elves with ships by the sea
Edain – Men who came from Hildorien
Things with Names
Vingilot – the ship Earendil tried to sail to Valinor in (and other places, but like, most important is that one)
