One of the most daunting things about reading The Silmarillion is keeping all of the names straight. I love this, so I want to make it more accessible for the general reader with brief character profiles.
- Name: Maglor
- Immediate Family:
- Father & Mother: Fëanor and Nerdanel
- Brother #1: Maedhros
- Brother #2: Celegorm
- Brother #3: Caranthir
- Brother #4: Curufin
- Brother #5: Amrod
- Brother #6: Amras
- Home: born in Valinor, lived in Middle-earth
- Claim to fame: the only one of Fëanor’s sons who survived the First Age
- Why he’s interesting: he wandered off, singing in sorrow. He has never seen again, apparently. I’ve always wondered where he really went. Did he eventually commit suicide?
