Fëanor's story resonates with the "wicked stepmother" theme, although Indis was not wicked; Fëanor hated her and his family lived apart from Indis and her children.


At this time, Morgoth Bauglir (Morgoth means The Dark Enemy, Bauglir is The Constrainer), originally named Melkor (He Who Arises in Might), is a fictional character of Middle_earth, created by J. R. R. Tolkien. ...Melkor, the mightest of the Valar and source of evil, had deceived the Valar into thinking that he had repented of his evil ways. Pardoned and residing in Valinor, he undertook to corrupt the Ñoldor and succeeded in making them them instruments of his malice, particularly Fëanor. But Fëanor greatly mistrusted Melkor, which was part of Melkor's plan.


In the greatest of his achievements, Fëanor captured the light of the The Two Trees of Valinor in the fictional universe of J.R.R. Tolkiens Middle_earth are Telperion and Laurelin, the Silver Tree and the Gold that brought light to the Land of the Valar in ancient times. ...Two Trees to make the three The Silmarils are fictional artifacts from J. R. R. Tolkiens universe of Middle_earth. ...Silmarils, also called the Great Jewels. He prized the Silmarils above all else, and grew increasingly suspicious that the Valar and Eldar coveted them. He either vainly displayed the jewels or jealously guarded them from all except his immediate family.


Melkor greatly desired the Silmarils and his hatred for Fëanor grew, but the Valar still did not know of Melkor's true intentions. Melkor played upon Fëanor's temperament and pride to convince him that his own half_brother Fingolfin was not only planning to usurp his place as heir to Finwë, but also seize the jewels for himself. Fëanor's hostility grew to the point to where he threatened Fingolfin's life. For this, the In J. R. R. Tolkiens fantasy universe, Middle_earth, the Valar are the Powers of Arda who live on the Western continent of Aman. ...Valar exiled him to Formenos. He took a substantial treasure with him, including the Silmarils, which he put in a locked box. In a show of support for his eldest son, Finwë withdrew to Formenos.


The Valar realized that Melkor was behind Fëanor's actions. They sent Tulkas (from the Valarin Tulukastâz) is a Vala from J. R. R. Tolkiens Middle_earth legendarium. ...Tulkas to imprison him again, but he could not be found. Melkor was not seen for a long time, until he unexpectedly showed up at Formenos. Since with Finwë and Fëanor's absence Fingolfin had become king, it seemed that Melkor's lies were true. Melkor tried again to convince Fëanor of them, but he erred, and Fëanor realized that Melkor's true goal was to obtain the Simarils. He shut the door in Melkor's face. In a rage, Melkor left. When the Valar heard of the incident, they started the hunt up again. But it was apparent that Melkor had fled from Valinor. He feigned to go north, but then turned south.


After a time the Valar sought to mend the breach between Fëanor and Fingolfin, and invited them to Valinor to make peace. Fingolfin offered a hand to his half_brother, recognizing Fëanor's place as the eldest, which he grudgingly accepted.


Meanwhile, Melkor stole away to In the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, Avathar is the dark strip of land at the feet of the southern Pelori. ...Avathar in the south of Aman to seek out the evil, spider_like creature In the fictional world of Middle_earth, Ungoliant (from Quenya ungwë liante: gloomweaver; Gwerlum in Sindarin) was an evil spirit in the form of a spider who dwelt in Avathar in the First Age. ...Ungoliant. Ungoliant helped Morgoth destroy the Two Trees, bringing darkness to Valinor. Morgoth and Ungoliant then went to Formenos, slew Finwë, and took all the gems there, including the Silmarils. They escaped by crossing the Helcaraxë, or Grinding Ice, in the north to In the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, Beleriand was the region of northwestern Middle-earth during the First Age. ...Beleriand in Middle_earth.


It was during the festivities where Fëanor and Fingolfin were being reconciled that the Trees were destroyed. The Valar knew that now the light of the Trees survived only in the Silmarils and Yavanna Kementári is a Vala from J. R. R. Tolkiens legendarium. ...Yavanna asked Fëanor to give them up so that they could restore the Trees. Fëanor emphatically stated that he would not give up his Silmarils of his own free will; if the Valar forced him, he said, they would be no better than Melkor. It was after this that the messenger came telling of the raid at Formenos.


According to the messenger, Morgoth, surrounded by an inpenetratable black fog, had come to Fëanor's vault in Formenos. Finwë the High_King fought and lost against Morgoth, and was the first Elf to be slain in Valinor. Morgoth ransacked the vault, taking many valuable jewels. Most notably, he was responsible for the thievery of the Silmarils.


The Return of the Ñoldor

The Valar and Eldar now fully understood the extent of Melkor's treachery. Fëanor, upon learning of his father's murder and the theft of his prized Silmarils, named Melkor "Morgoth", or "Black Enemy". Now King of the Ñoldor, Fëanor delivered the most impassioned speech ever given in Arda, which he unwittingly filled with Morgoth's taint. He railed against the Dark Lord, but because of Morgoth's influence, he also blamed the Valar for Morgoth's deeds. He persuaded most his people that because the Valar had abandoned them, the Ñoldor must follow him to Middle_earth and fight the Dark Lord. Fëanor then swore the terrible oath of Fëanor which all seven of his sons also proclaimed, vowing to fight anyone and everyone — whether Elf, Man, Maia, or Vala — who withheld the Silmarils, and invoking even Eru (the One), also called Ilúvatar (the Father of All), is the name in the legendarium of J.R.R. Tolkien for the supreme God, the creator of the angels ( Ainur) and the universe ( Eä). ...Ilúvatar as a witness. This became known as the Oath of Fëanor and later the cause for great tragedy among his seven sons.


Seeking a way to get to Middle_earth, he went to the shores of Aman, where the seafaring The main part of this article relates to the version of Middle_earths history that is considered canon by most Tolkien fans who accept such labels (see: Middle_earth canon). ...Teleri lived, and demanded the use of their ships. The Teleri refused, and in response, Fëanor and his armed and impassioned Ñoldor attacked the lightly_armed Teleri, destroyed their settlements and seized the ships.


In repentance of this act, Finarfin, Finwë's first son, took his host and turned back. They were accepted by the Valar, and Finarfin ruled as High_King of the Noldor in Valinor.


There were not enough ships to carry all of the Ñoldor across the sea, so Fëanor and his sons led the first group. Upon arriving at Losgar, in the land of Lammoth, in the far west of Beleriand, where Morgoth and Ungoliant had passed not long before, they decided to burn the ships and leave the followers of Fingolfin behind. However, Fëanor accidentally left his son Amras in the ships, and he was burned alive. The earth being flat in those days, the remaining Ñoldor saw the flames, and perceived that if they were to go to Middle_earth, they had no choice but to cross the Helcaraxë. This they did under the leadership of Fingolfin, and suffered great losses along the way, which greatly added to the animosity they had for Fëanor and his sons.


Learning of the Ñoldor's arrival, Morgoth summoned his armies from his fortress of See Angband (game) for the computer game. ...Angband and attacked Fëanor's encampment in In the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, Mithrim is a land of Middle_earth. ...Mithrim. This battle was called the Battle under the Stars, or Dagor_nuin_Giliath, for the Sun and Moon had not yet been made. The Ñoldor managed to win the battle, and disperse Morgoth's armies. Fëanor, still in a great rage, pressed on toward Angband with his sons. He came even within sight of Angband, but was ambushed by a force of This article deals with J.R.R. Tolkiens Balrogs. ...Balrogs, with few elves about him. He fought mightily, hewing even after receiving several wounds from For Gothmog, the lieutenant of Minas Morgul, see: Gothmog (Third Age). ...Gothmog, Lord of Balrogs. His sons came upon the balrogs with great force of elves, and were able to drive them off. However, as Fëanor was being escorted off the battlefield, he knew his wounds were mortal. He cursed Angband thrice, but with the eyes of death, he knew that his elves, unaided, would never throw down the dark towers. Upon his death, and before his sons could bury him, his body burst into flames and was consumed.


His sons were still bound by the Oath to recover the Silmarils, which would determine the events of Middle_earth during the In the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, the First Age began with the rise of the Sun and the arrival of the Ñoldor in the land Beleriand in Middle_earth, and ended with the overthrow of Morgoth. ...First Age.
