Of Thingol and Melian 

Melian sat long in silence beside Thingol the King, and her thought
passed back into the starlit years and to their first meeting among the
nightingales of Nan Elmoth in ages past.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | Oromë,
The Hunter, Lord of Forests

‘and Orome blew great blasts upon his horn as though he would awake the grey
rocks to life and lustihead. Behold, at these blasts the great forest reared and
moaned about the hills, and all the trees of dark leaf came to being, and the
world was shaggywith a growth of pines and odorous with resinous trees, and
firs and cedars hung their blue and olive draperies about the slopes, and yews
began the centuries of their growth.’

Like all of Finwë’s sons, Finarfin founded his own house after his marriage to Eärwen daughter of Olwë in YT 1280. The couple had four children: Finrod, Angrod, Aegnor, and Galadriel. Finarfin was said to be the fairest and wisest of Finwë’s sons. Uniquely among the Noldor he and his descendants all had golden hair inherited from his mother, so his house was sometimes called “The Golden House of Finarfin”.

Maglor

Between the arms of Gelion was the ward of Maglor, and here in one place
the hills failed altogether: there it was that the Orcs came into East
Beleriand before the Third Battle. Therefore the Noldor held strength of
cavalry In the plains at that place; and the people of Caranthir fortified the
mountains to the east of Maglor’s Gap.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | The First House of The Noldor | Maedhros

But Maedhros restrained his brothers, and they departed from the council, and soon afterwards they left Mithrim and went eastward beyond Aros to the wide lands about the Hill of Himring. That region was named thereafter the March of Maedhros; for northwards there was little defence of hill or river against assault from Angband. There Maedhros and his brothers kept watch, gathering all such people as would come to them, and they had few dealings with their kinsfolk westward, save at need. It is said indeed that Maedhros himself devised this plan, to lessen the chances of strife, and because he was very willing that the chief peril of assault should fall upon himself.

The Maia Ossë kept them company while they waited, and became their friend. Later when Ulmo returned with the island ferry, the Teleri had grown to love the sea. Ossë convinced Ulmo to anchor the island in the bay of Eldamar, off the shores of Aman, and persuaded many of the Teleri to remain in Middle-Earth.

Idril Celebrindal



But fairer than all the wonders of Gondolin was Idril, Turgon’s
daughter, she that was called Celebrindal, the Silver-foot, whose hair
was as the gold of Laurelin before the coming of Melkor.
