Post Info: Teleri

Greetings, all!

Today, I will be discussing the Teleri; the third, and last, Elf-clan.

===

Race: Elves

House: Singular, Teler. Plural, Teleri.

Appearance: Silver (rare) or black hair. Slender appearance and pale skin.

Details: The Teleri, who were made of the Nelyar (they called themselves the Lindar), were the third and last of the Elf-clans to awake at Cuiviénen. Enel and his wife, Enelyë, were the forebears of the house; and with their 72 companions; made the total. However, it was not until Elwë went to Valinor, that they had a King.

During the Great Journey into Aman, most of the Teleri saw the Misty Mountains, and abandoned their people. These Elves became known as the Nandor and/or the Silvan Elves.

The Teleri were lovers of the sea, and makers of boats. However, it was their love of which that made them become the last of the Elf-clans to enter the Blessed Realm, for Ulmo was convinced to anchor the Lonely Isle between the two worlds for them.

During the Silmarili event, the Teleri had a port called Alqualondë, which means Swan Harbour. The Noldor demanded that the Teleri give them their ships, so they could pursue Morgoth and make war against him. The Teleri refused, and though it is unclear who fired the first arrow, many Elves were slain by Elves at the port. The first Kinslaying.

It is known that the Teleri favour Song and Music, and made their houses in 'huts' on the beaches. Unlike the other clans, however, the Teleri have a stronger connection with the cycles of nature, and do not favour the Valar as much as their cousins.
