(Art) Royal Houses of the Noldor

I believe there are a few Tolkien fans in my flist (well, I know there's at least one), so I thought I'd post this here. A family tree of the royal houses of the Noldor -- that's Fëanor, Galadriel, and that crowd --  from the 'Silmarillion', using chibi art. (courtesy of here.)

I was actually inspired to do this by getting confused over the hair colour of the different Elves, believe it or not ("Wait, which one of them is blond again?"), so this is a kind of recognition chart. Like they issued in the Second World War for enemy aircraft, except this one is for Eldar. See if you can work out the other identifying features I gave each Elf... (Explanation is under the cut)
