The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 137 - Seven brothers

At least they don't have seven brides. That would double the number of new characters you have to keep track of!

Note that I've designed Fëanor's sons so they all have a silver 8-pointed star embroidered on the front of their shirt; that way you can tell their family allegiance even if you can't always remember which one is which.

As a reminder: at this point in history Elves have a father-name and a mother-name, given by the respective parent. Later on in the story (and as such an anachronism at this point) they also have a translation or adaptation of their name into Sindarin. Thus Curufinwë Fëanáro (fathername, mothername) becomes Fëanor in Sindarin; Nelyafinwë Maitimo becomes Maedhros in Sindarin.
