How about the west where they came from (or theri decendants came from)? But I doubt that such noble creatures would be that selfish, just abandon the world when things got tough/

ok ok if you define proud and greedy as evil, but the point is he was not evil for the sake of evil as such. He was not a totally corrupted character, and because of this he could still have enough...

He was proud, and he turned to folly, but is it ever said he was evil? He was tricked by evil, Sauron used his pride and his vanity, but I am sure he could also be good to people if he liked them.

You can hardly call some birds a race can you? They were on a side, but at one point every single creature was on a side (cf the war of wrath).

Isn't it every person's wish (or it was a while ago) that their daughter would wed a man of noble birth. Elrond may not have wanted her to wed a King of Men, maybe just an elf of noble blood.

Saruman made his "many colours" out of his one colour. By doing this he had broken it and spread it out, thus dimishing its power. This symbolises what happens to his strength, he spreads it around...

At a guess I would say the winged beasts were things corrupted by Melkor from eagles before the awakening of the elves. Barrow Wights and Black Riders are not really races as such, they are dead...

hmm a lot of people there aren't strictly Races. Ungoliant isn't a Maia, she doesn't serve a Vala. The Balrogs are Ex-Maiar, as is Sauron, they all used to be Maiar. Olvar and kelvar? Now were...

I love the idea of a cyptic reference to the Valar being the Kings. This is the sort of thing JRRT would do, give an impresion of a history that a few of the characters know about, but you dont (yet).

e in end, I'm fairly sure. The two dots only means it should be taken as a distinct syllable, which means that it is pronounced like a normal e, which is e from end. ť is a German eh (mehr).
