Second-eldest of the sons of Feanor
, usually listed along with Maedhros
in the text. Portrayed as doughty and strong, a great leader, but has little independent role in the book he appears in, Tolkien's Silmarillion.
One of the last two survivors from among the sons of Feanor, he like Maedhros ended up with a Silmaril, but apparently he threw it in the sea, and then wandered the shores singing mournfully.
Like Maedhros, he fought in the battles against Morgoth, and against Elwing's forces, but was not part of the abduction of Luthien and was not captured by Morgoth.
