The earliest confirmed beard is Mahtan's, who had one before the death of the Trees. If you take Tolkien's weirder writings into account, this grew early in his second stage of life (out of three),...

Speaking of Mim, checking in Children of Hurin I find that Khim took an arrow to the chest, and yet still managed to make it the rest of the way home (a full day's journey for Turin's company), and...

Yes to both of you. :D Tilion is of course best known for stalking Arien so much that he scorched the Moon on one side.

Well maybe I'm not very good at cryptic clues. ^_^ But you guessed it, so maybe I actually am?
