About this fanlisting

Glorfindel is a character created by J.R.R. Tolkien. He is an elf, more specifically a Noldo who appears in the Middle-Earth tales. His name means "golden-haired" and he was the Lord of the House of the Golden Flower in Gondolin. In the First Age, Glorfindel became famous for killing a Balrog during the Fall of Gondolin. He saved the lives of women and children, but died himself. Later, he returns to life in Valinor, but leaves the Undying Lands in the Second Age. He assists Elrond and Gil-Galad in fighting Sauron. In the Third Age, he helps Frodo reaching Imladris.
In The Lord of the Rings Glorfindel is described thus: "Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength."
