The Pillar is Meneltarma, the Pillar of Heaven. Sauron had the White Tree burned. And yes, the Star is Numenor itself - pretty sure an earthquake had a part in taking it out (also I didn't want to...

Maeglin? 'Born from grief, taught to hate' seems to cut the field down quite a lot - most of the sad parents (Rian, for instance) just sort of moped rather than explicitly raising their kids to be...

Aegnor is correct, as elder brother of Galadriel (he's younger than Finrod). His name means 'fell fire', and indeed, the Sudden Flame was what killed him.

The patience/water reference is to his...

While Lalaith is definitely younger than Turin, she's still older than Nienor, who is much more famous than her. :)

Neither Sauron nor Glaurung, though you're right to be looking at malevolent entities.

That... would actually fit the two remaining clues too, but no. :) The specifics are more about the person in the clue than their illustrious siblings - or, I suppose, about them both.

I think it's a name used for Arien; they basically called her 'Sunshine'.



Not Galadriel, I'm afraid. In this case 'comes from the shore' is a pointer at the meaning of her name.
