The Silmarillion aesthetic | Celegorm The Fair


‘The name Celegorm, hasty riser, may have been a reference to his quick
temper and his habit of leaping up when suddenly angered.’

He was the
only son of Feanor to be fair-haired, hence his epesse.

(The Peoples of
Middle-Earth, HoMe 12, The Shibboleth of Feanor)

Each of them took to himself a Silmaril, for they said: ‘Since one is lost to us, and but two remain, and we two alone of our brothers, so is it plain that fate would have us share the heirlooms of our father.’

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,

but

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.

No other player has there been,
no other lips or fingers seen
so skilled, ‘tis said in elven-lore,
save Maglor son of Fëanor,
forgotten harper, singer doomed,
who young when Laurelin yet bloomed
to endless lamentation passed
and in the tombless sea was cast.
