But I have no idea why a green lantern is a ring slinger!

Hint: Start from 9, the easiest one to guess; there is a reason 'tree' is capitalized. After that.....well, my little trick would be revealed.

1. So she's REPLET(e) + EIN?

Hello, TELPERIEN. Are you also the password or is that too easy?

Alas, my little trick is uncovered.

Telperien: She is endlessly full in reverse, with German one spinning.
??E??: The largest Australian lizard goes in circles and gains direction.
??L??: Turn a class of vertebrates around. Shorten England.
??P??: A compound and an element spin together, chemically speaking
??E??: Deceive, according to number. It's all jumbled up.
??R??: A scheme changes vowels and a wheel cover gains one, in a muddle
??I??: A hormone and a lake without eye. It's all broken.
??E??: Elite skill in a daze.
??N??: A Tree changes a vowel.

I knew you would get it almost immediately. This has been Urwen's revenge.

I did actually consider replete. But I was too tired to start thinking of anagrams.

Well, the Australian lizard is Perentie, and I guess the direction is L.

Are you saying that what Maeglin is to you, Telperien is to Huinesoron?

Should I just give it over, considering that all the answers are the same?

Edit: Because he likes Telperien just as I like Lomion, and it was hard coming up with different clues.

No, let's work out how the clues work first.

How is PREN skill in the elite one? Or is the skill PR, and EN some medical term for a daze that I've never heard of?

Pren is skill, according to this: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Pren

If you remove pren from the name, what letters are you left with?

REPTILE for the class of vertebrates, plus EN for shortened English.

LIE + RE + TEN still leaves the P of Telperien.

EDIT: Oh, sorry. 'According to' must be PER, not RE.

I think TIRE is the North American spelling of a wheel cover?

PLAN - change A to E.

TIREPLEN.

Oh, 'one' refers to a vowel.

TIREPLENE = TELPERIEN.

LEPTIN (found in adipose tissue) and ER(I)E for the hormone and the lake.

It's like gun-slinger; GL is a space sherriff (or should that be Shirriff?).

This is actually not true in the least. ^_^ But it amuses me that you think it is.

Right, it looks like Pervinca has got 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7. So there's three left:

8. Elite skill in a daze.

If PREN is the skill, then TELEI gives 'elite'... and is, in fact, just an anagram of ELITE. (Which means I guess Pervinca got this one too.)

9. A Tree changes a vowel.

You said it was the easiest... TELPERION switches to an E.

4. A compound and an element spin together, chemically speaking

Ah, now you're speaking my language! Except I... can't... find a chemical compound in there. :-/ Hrm.

Then your statement that she is your current obsession was a lie?

Well, yeah, the theory, because the idea amuses me immensely (and holds up pretty well I think). But the theory is not the character - and I have lots of bizarre obsessions.

Is it a chemical compound? The clue suggests it, but is only the element a chemical one?

To COMPOUND something is also to make it worse and its annoyances more complex and stronger.

You can live in a compound ... a building or set of buildings where more than one family live.

TELPERIEN almost has the WORD element in it ... but no M.

Are you saying that what Maeglin is to you, Telperien is to Huinesoron?
But never mind.

The compound could be NITRE or PETRE (another word for saltpetre). What letters does that leave?

ELPE

or

LIEN

The thing is, I think the compound (if chemical compound it be) must be one with a layman's name, like the two above, because the full chemical name would be too long.

It isn't mine. It's Huinesoron's!

I enjoyed it, though.

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
I have to say that I love, love, love, your last puzzle, and I am eager to see what you'd come up with next.
