Ah, of course. AERIN. Kin to Turin. I can't remember the exact family relationship. (For the 'sunny' clue).

I had thought of spirit in other senses, but can't make any of them work.

3. Maybe ARIEN? In some versions she is Urwen ... the other Urwen's family had woes. Or the Valar/Maiar 'family' had woes or an internal shake-up before she was chosen to guide the sun.

'Dead' for password and 'Eol' for the fishy clue? :D

Orcs I guess are slaves. Roac (a raven) minus a is orc. Trouble is, that's only one deprived (one letter, unless the Umlaut counts) and it isn't really tumbled.
