Encyclopedia of Arda: Elwing (204 words)
Through the power of Ulmo she escaped the destruction of the Havens of Sirion in the form of a white bird, and came to her husband on the Sea with a Silmaril on her breast.
Working back to her great-grandparents, Elwing was actually five-eighths Sinda, one quarter Mortal and one eighth Maia.
Elwing's name, 'Star-spray' comes from the starlight glinting on the waterfall of Lanthir Lamath, at her father's house in Ossiriand, on the night she was born.
Elrond (3986 words)
Earendil was Half-elven: his mother Idril was an Elf and his father Tuor was a Man. Elwing's mother Nimloth was an Elf and her father Dior was the son of Beren – a Man – and Luthien – the daughter of an Elf and a Maia.
It is said he cherished the two children and fostered them for a time, though according to another story the twins were left by their captors in a cave behind a waterfall where they were later found safe and sound.
The Vala Manwe decreed that Earendil and Elwing, as well as Elrond and Elros and their descendants, should have the choice whether to be counted among Elves or Men.
