Do you mean Morwen Eledhwen? She is a mortal though.

Nope, I don't mean Morwen Eledhwen, and I know she's a mortal.

Why thank you.

This, I believe might be a little tougher than you think, but have at it. If you need a hint, just ask.

Neither of those are right.

Here's your first hint: He is an elf.

Again, neither are correct, though your idea is a rather ingenious one Lommy. However, my clue is a little more obvious than that. Keep guessing!

Told you it'd be difficult. Here, let me narrow it down a little more before I get to obvious with it: He's only in the Silmarillion. That's all the clues I'm giving out until tomorrow.

And he's got it!! Yay Rune!! I don't know why, but when I saw that you had returned, I knew that you would be the one to solve it! Yay!

So, just to clarify, the clue was:

Quote:
Immortal shall he stay.
And Ingwë, who was a secondary character, remained in Numenor, Therefor, he, along with all others, shall remain immortal (what I mean is that he is safe from being killed) unless he were to die of grief. I also would have accepted Ossë as he is in the same category as Ingwë. Finarfin would have been acceptable as well...

Anyway, take it away Rune!

Yes, but I was leaning towards Ingwë more than Finarfin. And actually, the thought that Finarfin could have been accepted only came to me after I said yes to Rune. Sorry symestreem!

That's fine. Though, as Thinlomien pointed out, perhaps you meant Valinor instead of Numenor, and Olwe instead of Osse, who was a Maia of the sea?

I suppose Rune isn't giving a new one, so I'll go.


Few know what the origin truly is, but this character has an unspoken power and beauty that is apparent.

Nope, good guess though.

I'll give you a hint: The role of this character is not as big as Galadriel's.
