  • These two brothers are rarely mentioned apart from each other. While "The Silmarillion" contains Elves acting badly, Celegorm and Curufin are perhaps the most infamous. They literally gave their entire clan a bad name on their own, and I think their motivations bear examination.

  • Gilraen, Aragorn's mother, is one of those proud, but doomed female characters in Tolkien's Middle-earth who can't seem to get a "happily ever after" ending.

  • Caranthir is one of the sons of Feanor who gets less attention than his brothers, Maedhros, Celegorm, and Curufin. However I think there's more than meets the eye to him than is given credit for.

  • It's been a while since I started my pet project of doing psych profiles on characters from Middle-Earth I found compelling. So I'm glad to get back to it. These profiles are done from an in-universe point of view and not what Tolkien meant to write. It's long but I hope you enjoy it.

  • This profile is on the first High King of the Noldor elves and derives from the book, The Silmarillion. He has a long-lasting legacy in the history of the lore and his immediate family.

  • Given the backdrop of race issues in the real world, I never noticed until recently how much of that is indirectly reflected in J.R.R. Tolkien's books and movie adaptions, so I wanted to explore that.

  • This Middle-earth profile covers Nienor, daughter of Hurin and Morwen, and sister/wife of her brother Turin. For proper context, read "The Silmarillion" and "The Children of Hurin."

  • The solo Elf in the Fellowship of the Ring is an unusual chap, but not for the reasons you might think. Learn the fascinating story of Legolas of Mirkwood, hidden in the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien.

  • One of the most lingering aspects to me about "The Silmarillion" was the tale of Numenor, an island inhabited by the best of humanity. Its destruction was so severe, so total, that I had to examine the motivation behind it.

  • Next to Morgoth, Feanor is the biggest catalyst for the events of the First Age of Middle-earth. Though he dies early on, his legacy outlasts him as one of the most controversial of Middle-earth.

  • The legacy of Luthien is the most famous in the universe of Middle-earth. So much so that it is easy to lose track of who the actual person was and what made her tick.

  • Why was Denethor a Steward? Why wasn't Aragorn king? What was his actual claim to the throne? Unsurprisingly, it's a lot more complicated in the books than the films, which didn't have the time to explain.

  • So, I wanted to do psychological profiles of certain Middle-Earth characters from an in-universe perspective. This one is on Hurin.

  • Here's a look at what makes J.R.R Tolkien so popular and why so many love his books. Also included is a closer look at "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings," two books that really made Tolkien the massive name he is today.
