Hey, this is actually, to my knowledge, quite a new way of asking riddles, and shouldn't be left to die!

And the first answer could be Nimrodel again:

1. Stream = her namesake
2. Song = the one Legolas sang
3. A Balrog = Durin's Bane, whose awakening by the Dwarves was the reason for her and Amroth's emigration plans
(4. got lost - like Nimrodel herself)
5. Havens - of Edhellond, where they planned to set sail
6. Aman - final destiny which she never reached

Would Tuor be it? Harp only as the instrument, Swans on the shore when he came to the coast, Rainbow related to Cirith Ninniach, Cloak the Cloak of Ulmo, Star related to Eärendil?

My apologies.

I just realized that it was (ahem) a FIRST age character we were supposed to use.

I'll count your guess as correct and surrender control to you, Urwen, with a mea culpa.

(BTW, my answer was Thorin, who was definitely not around in the First Age).

Thanks.

What about this:

1.Brethil
2.Orcs
3.Thingol
4.Death
5.Father
6.Brother

It's a little tough...

Amrod/Amras

Now it should be easy...
