The First House of The Noldor
Caranthir The Dark
Now the people of Caranthir dwelt furthest east beyond the upper waters
of Gelion, about Lake Helevorn under Mount Rerir; and they
climbed the heights of Ered Luin and looked eastward in wonder, for wild and
wide it seemed to them were the lands of Middle-earth.
And thus it was that Caranthir’s people came upon the Dwarves,
no great love was there between them; for the Dwarves were secret and
quick to resentment, and Caranthir was haughty and scarce concealed his scorn
for the unloveliness of the Naugrim, and his people followed their lord.
