As they sang the hobbit felt the love of beautiful things made by hands and by cunning and by magic moving through him, a fierce and jealous love, the desire of the hearts of dwarves. Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.

Among Melkor’s servants that have names the greatest was that spirit whom the Eldar called S a u r o n, or Gorthaur the Cruel. In his beginning he was of the Maiar of Aulë, and he remained mighty in the lore of that people. In all the deeds of Melkor the Morgoth upon Arda, in his vast works and in the deceits of his cunning, Sauron had a part, and was only less evil than his master in that for long he served another and not himself. But in after years he rose like a shadow of Morgoth and a ghost of his malice, and walked behind him on the same ruinous path down into the Void.
“You mean to come with me?”
“It’s going to be very dangerous, Sam. It is already dangerous. Most likely neither of us will come back.”
“If you don’t come back, sir, than I shan’t, that’s certain.”
The seven sons of Fëanor were Maedhros the tall; Maglor the mighty singer, whose voice was heard far over land and sea; Celegorm the fair, and Caranthir the dark; Curufin the crafty, who inherited most his father’s skill of hand; and the youngest Amrod and Amras, who were twin brothers, alike in mood and face.
For she is a fair maiden, fairest lady of a house of queens. And yet I know not how I should speak of her. When I first looked on her and perceived her unhappiness, it seemed to me that I saw a white flower standing straight and proud, shapely as a lily, and yet knew that it was hard, as if wrought by elf-wrights out of steel. Or was it, maybe, a frost that had turned its sap to ice, and so it stood, bitter-sweet, still fair to see, but stricken, soon to fall and die?
The Bëorians were noted as being very akin to the Ñoldor in their appearance; with dark hair, grey eyes and stout build and many of those descended from Bëorian stock (or part Bëorian) had these traits. Furthermore, the majority of the Elendili were those of Bëorian descent. This is because the majority of the Beorians were settled in the West of Numenor, which later became the area controlled by the Faithful Lords of Andúnië. Evidence of this can be seen in Aragorn II’s physical description: lean, dark and tall, with “a shaggy head of dark hair flecked with grey, and in a pale stern face a pair of keen grey eyes."(Ioan Gruffudd as Bëor, Lena Headey as Morwen, Ben Barnes as Beren, Rachel Weisz as Andreth)
Celegorm the Fair [Turcafinwë Tyelkormo], the third son of Fëanor, a great huntsman and a friend of the Vala Oromë.
Lúthien & Beren
The marriage of Beren and Lúthien was the first of the three unions of a mortal Man and an Elf, of which came the Half-elven, those who had both elven and human ancestors. Like Lúthien, they were given the choice of being counted among either Elves or Men.
