The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 228 - Last light

I wonder if the 'slender beam' of the light on the top of the Mindon Eldaliéva rotates?

The bottom group of elves includes some that I don't think we've seen before. From left to right, Finarfin, Finrod Felagund, Orodreth (Angrod's son), Aredhel, Argon, Angrod, Elenwë (Turgon's wife), Turgon, Aegnor, Galadriel, Fingon, Fingolfin.

To tell them apart: Fingolfin and his children wear predominantly blue and white (which are my 'Vanyar' colours, in honour of Indis), except Aredhel and Turgon who are both noted in the book as wearing all-white. (But I added blue highlights anyway). Finarfin and his sons wear 'Noldor' green, but have blond hair. Galadriel wears a different colour because she's a rebel. Orodreth wears the same colours as his father and uncles, but I gave him dark hair (in canon, I don't think his hair is ever mentioned) to distinguish him. Elenwë is wearing Vanya colours under her warm coat.

All Finwë's sons and grandchildren (and two great-grandchildren), together in the same cartoon...

Part 228: Last light

Next time: Part 229: Ships are needed
