Biography: The son of Amandil, Elendil grew up to see the height of Númenor's beauty, and it's terrible demise. Perceiving Sauron's evil intent, Elendil's father Amandil requested that he prepare nine great vessels capabale of carry him and many of his kin. Though his father disappeared at sea shortly afterwards, it was these vessels that saved Elendil from death when Númenor was consumed by the sea. East they sailed, Elendil with his brother and his son Isildur, and Elendil soon founded his realm beyond Ered Luin, where be befriended Gil-galad. Elendil, along with his kin, proceeded to build the strongholds of Gondor: Minas Ithil, Minas Anor, Osgiliath and Isengard.

With the aid of Palantiri Elendil kept watch over much of Middle-earth, and whenever lonely he would turn his gaze back to the seas. However, underneath his watchful eye Sauron returned to Middle-earth and slowly he regained his lost power. Fearing he would grow too strong for both their people, Elendil and Gil-galad forged the Last Alliance of Elves and Man, a great host which drove through Sauron's minions in Dagorland before reaching his stronghold of Mordor. There they laid siege for seven years before Sauron himself finally came onto the battle-field and wreaked havoc, slaying Anárion and Gil-Galad before finally casting Elendil down also, his sword lying broken beside him.

cirdan.jpg

Name: Cirdan
Aliases: The Shipwright, Lord of the Falathrim, Lord of the Grey Havens
Born: At Cuivenienen in the First Age
Death: U/A
Race: Teleri Elf
 

A lord of the Teleri in Middle Earth, Círdan was persuaded to remain in Beleriand with some of his people by Osse when the other Teleri were taken into the West by Ulmo. Lord of the Falas during much of the First Age, he removed to the Isle of Balar after the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. At the end of the First Age, with the destruction of Beleriand, he moved eastwards and founded Mithlond, the Grey Havens.

He remained in Lindon throughout the Second and the Third Age. Throughout the Second Age, that land was under the direct rule of High King Gil-Galad. At the time of the fall of Eregion, Celebrimbor sent two of the Three Elven Rings north to the High King, and  Gil-Galad in turn passed one of these to Círdan; Narya the Ring of Fire. At the end of the Seond Age, Gil-Galad fell in the War of the Last Alliance, leaving Lindon without a ruler. His natural heir would have been Elrond, who had long since moved to Imladris, and so Círdan took on the leadership of the Elves west of the Blue Mountains.

Biography: Isildur first comes into the reckoning of Middle-earth's history as the son of Elendil who stole a scion from Nimloth the Fair in the courts of Númenor, fearing the Tree would be cut down. Isildur brought with him this scion during the destruction of Númenor and planted it before his house in Minas Ithil, one of the great towers built by him and his brother Anárion after they founded the kingdom of Gondor. It was under the banner of the White Three that he and his kin would soon fight when in SA 3441 the Men of Middle-earth, led by Isildur's father Elendil, bore arms along with the Elves of Gil-galad to form a Last Alliance to battle the evil force of Sauron.

In the ensuing battle, Elendil was slewn and Isildur bore up his father's broken sword Narsil to cut the One Ring from Sauron's finger, thus vanquishing him from Middle-earth. Isildur would not heed the advice of Elrond and Cirdan and instead of destroying the One Ring by casting it into Mount Doom, he took it as his own. In the end the Ring betrayed him, slipping from his finger as he attempted to swim away from a party of ambushing Orcs at the Gladden Fields near the Misty Mountains. Revealed to the Orcs, Isildur was fatally injured by a great many arrows and passed away from Middle-earth, along with all knowledge of the whereabouts of Sauron's ring.

Date of Birth: ---
Race: Maia
Height: Unknown

Biography: Sauron was the creator of the One Ring. During his stay at Dol-Guldur, He was known as the Necromancer. At the time of The Fellowship of the Ring, He was in a constant, sleepless search for the Ring, building his armies, and breeding fell races to do his bidding. His greatest servants were the 9, the Nazgul, servants of the Ring. It would be nearly impossible to list all of the evil plots of Sauron, the master of deceit and treachery, but his chief deeds are listed as follows: the creation of the Black Speech, the breeding of the Olog-Hai and possibly the Uruk-Hai, and the creation of the aforementioned Nazgul, men ensnared into service by the Nine Rings of Men. Even though he did not possess the Ring, its existence gave him enough strength to eventually overcome Middle Earth, and Gandalf and Elrond knew that the only decision was to destroy the Ring, a deed which Sauron had never thought of, and could not fathom.

More persons to be added soon.
