Eönwë | The mightiest of the Maiar, the Herald of Manwë,

But at the last the might of Valinor came up out of the West, and the challenge of the trumpets of Eönwë filled the sky; and Beleriand was ablaze with the glory of their arms, for the host of the Valar were arrayed in forms young and fair and terrible, and the mountains rang beneath their feet.

Chief of the Maiar

Chief among the Maiar of Valinor whose name is remembered in the histories of the Elder Days is Eönwë, the banner-bearer and herald of Manwë, whose might in arms is surpassed by none in Arda.


The Valar and Maiar came from beyond the realms of Arda, but the second I start talking about how Gandalf is an alien, Tolkien scholars stop taking me seriously.

I’ll go. Don’t be ridiculous, you’ll never make it. Why not? Because they will see you coming, and kill you.


Thorin, you can wait no longer. You are the heir to the Throne of Durin. Unite the armies of the Dwarves. Together, you have the might and power to retake Erebor. Summon a meeting of the seven Dwarf families. Demand they stand by their oath. The seven armies swore that oath to the one who wields the King’s Jewel.
