Alrighty - so I have been creating characters for JRRT collab writing for well over a decade. What follows below is a brief reprise of some of the notables in terms of race.

Ainur

Name: Elora Starsong

Race: Ainur - not Maia but officially expunged from the annals as Valar

Gender: Female

Height: 6 foot

Weight: 165 pounds

Build: Lithe

Hair: Copper curls fall to her hips

Eyes: Green and gold, not unlike a forest glade illuminated by the sun

Occupation: Warrior, wanderer, huntress and some say trickster. Whilst Varda brought the stars, Yavanna the wide forests, Manwe the wind and Ulmo the seas, Elora brought language and song.

Personality: Fiercely independent and inclined to challenge anything she sees fit, including her own kin. Prone to merriness, frequently mischievous and irreverent approach. Elora rarely displays her sorrow and her wrath, when rarely unveiled, is terrifying for its power. Only one is mightier than she, her brother Melkor (Morgoth). Like Melkor, Elora is considered a spirit of fire.

Eldar

Name: Naiore Dannan

Race: Noldorin Elf - Finarfin's kin

Born: Second Age - 4

Lineage: Naiore is related through her mother to Galadriel. Both her mother and father came to Middle Earth with Finarfin's people in the First Age.

Weapons: Silken garrotte, seven daggers and a Noldorin sword made for her by Celebrimbor

Appearance: Tall and fair as the dawn, blonde hair that fell like silk to her hips and eyes of living starlight.

Personality: Aloof, Naiore was a loner from birth who only became progressively more isolated as her gifts unfolded. She is highly sensative to the emotional states of others and in time would develop the terrifying ability to manipulate the emotions of others to their downfall. This strength is perversely her weakness. For each manipulation she performs on another, she too pays the emotional toll. There is a gaping hollowness within her that eats all hope, all brightness and leaves only despair.

Naiore is a lonely figure, convinced from early childhood that she is somehow fundamentally flawed. It is this weakness that was so ably exploited by Sauron. She can be supremely arrogant and distant, her defence from any perceiving the flaw she believes within her. Her rage is glacial, and she is capable of truly horrendous acts that have earned her a feared and reviled reputation amongst Men and Elves alike. She can be prone to excesses of appetites but is rarely seen to smile or laugh. She is an intricate character who has been shattered and remade into a weapon capable of unimaginable horrors. She has no allegiances and a frightening appetite for destruction.

She is contemptuous of mortals, and views her own people with an abiding resentment.


Edain- of which there are numerous characters (fitting for this race)

Name: Simra Arghaet

Date of Birth: Third Age - 3004

Race: Man - non Aduanic

Lineage: Simra is a native of Khand, sole daughter of a General Arghaet, leader of a small group of rebels against Sauron

Weapons: None – although Simra will dance under another’s sword if she deems the honour worthy of its owner.

Appearance: Tall for her people at 5’8”, Simra possesses a dancer’s lithe strength and physical presence. Her skin is dusky, her eyes the colour of melted chocolate and her hair falls in cocoa waves to her hips. She wears the wealth earned through her dancing in the custom of her people. When not dancing, Simra is swathed in the flowing thobes favoured by her people.

Personality: Simra is intelligent and gracious, charming and sensuous. That said, she was respectful of her people’s customs and comported herself in a manner befitting a woman of her standing. She is a woman of unflinching bravery. Simra has spent little time outside of Khand and so knows little of the wider world.

~ ~ ~ ~


Name: Laurelinquë

Born: Third Age - 769, Annuminas

Race: Dunedain (mostly)

Height: 5’10”

Build: A fighter's build - trim, lean, muscular

Hair: Russet, length varies according to when last she cut it

Eyes: Pale grey

Personality: Laurelinquë has an analytical mind with a pragmatic streak as wide as the ocean. Her practical nature is matched with a tenacious, at times pugnacious, attitude. She is deeply principled by nature. Fidelity, honour and courage in particular define her world view. These were ingrained in her at a tender age by those who took her into their keeping.

She is a hard worker who prefers to go unnoticed by important personages. She takes her duty very seriously indeed. Laurelinquë lives simply and desires only to discharge herself to the satisfaction of her commanding officers. She harbours no ambition herself, convinced that her humble heritage suits her better to tasks other than command. She is the sort of person who will do a job she is given, no matter how challenging, and do it well.

She is quiet, chooses her friends carefully and usually found alone.

Skills: Laurelinquë is a skilled warrior who rose from the rank and file of Prince Earnil’s men during the Dunlending campaigns of ~800. That she did so without the benefit of noble heritage, a family to support her and as a woman is of particular note. The Dunlending campaign was Laurelinquë’s first experience in the field and she took to it very well indeed. Amongst the shieldmaidens of Rohan she is particularly well regarded but she is vigilant in avoiding accolades.

“They are proud and wilful, but they are true-hearted, generous in thought and deed; bold but not cruel; wise but unlearned, writing no books but singing many songs, after the manner of the children of Men before the Dark Years.” Aragorn, describing the Rohirrim in the Two Towers, as written by JRR Tolkien.

Name: Freja Fireborn

Born: Third Age 2993, Rohan - East Fold

Race: Rohirrim

Height: 5’11”

Build: Like the spear she wields - tall, slender, strong

Hair: Wine red, a colour unique to the East Fold - typically caught up in braids and woven with silver rings (torcs of rank)

Eyes: Startling blue - too blue to be accounted beautiful, according to the menfolk of Rohan.

Personality: Indomitable, bold and daring. Freja rolls through the world as if nothing can stop her. She is inclined to take a risk if the gain is worthy. Quick of temper she is quicker still to laughter and does not bear a grudge. Beneath that larger than life sparkle, though, is a steady will of iron and an untarnished streak of fealty and honour. Diligent and disciplined as she has to be, Freja is by no means sober, dull or grim. She makes friends easily enough but her freedom with her thoughts means she makes enemies too. She will ask for forgiveness before she will ask for permission.

Skills: Though young, Freja is a gifted warrior who was admitted to the Shieldmaiden ranks early, even by their standards. She has risen steadily and acquitted herself with distinction in her training and later service. She was the youngest initiate to attain the full rank of Shield Maiden in the known history of the order. At the time of the War of the Ring, she has risen to second in command of her order and all believe that she will go on to succeed Captain Eriwyn provided she survives the War itself. She is accounted a master of sword and spear, as well as skilled horsewoman.

Name: Lochared (Loch)

Age: 30, at a guess - born in the Forth Age, Year 12

Race: Man

Lineage: Mix of Dunland native (mother) and Rohan (father)

Weapons: His hands. Lochared has no material possessions, including weaponry of any sort.

Appearance: Tall, and would be broad shouldered if he were properly fed. He has sandy hair from his father, his mother's deep brown eyes and facial structure. He wears whatever he can get his hands on.

Personality: Loch is a naturally affable individual forced into desperate circumstances. He is fiercely protective of his younger sister and pursued by an innate sense of inadequacy owing to his mixed parentage and the prejudice he has encountered as a result.

He is tenacious, and sometimes reckless. Loch prefers action to inaction. He very much wishes to become a soldier, to protect his sister and avoid the fate of his parents. He is hardy, loyal and dogged in his persistance. He has a hard time following instructions and is hard to dislodge from an idea once it has entered his head.

Loch prefers to leave most of the thinking to his younger sister. Loch, if properly fed, is a difficult man to best in hand to hand fighting. He is an accomplished scout and steadfast companion. He is too easy to trust, wishing more than anything to actually belong.

~ ~ ~ ~


Name: Rosmarin (Rin)

Age: 27 - born in the Forth Age, Year 15

Race: Dunedain

Lineage: Initially thought to be the same as Lochared's (her foster brother), it emerges that Rin's heritage is different indeed - she is heir to the fallen throne of Cardolan

Weapons: Rin owns nothing except her wits, remarkably deft fingers and an occasionally sharp tongue

Appearance: Tall for a woman, and slight as a willow due in part to genetics but mostly due to prolonged malnutrition endured across most of her childhood. She has paler hair than her brother, piercing blue eyes and a delicate facial structure. She is as fair as her mother before her, the Lady Verawyn.

Personality: Rin is the yang to Loch's yin in many ways. She is quick tempered and impatient, and slow to trust others. She has a deeply ingrained fear of soldiers owing to her traumatic early childhood and keeps her own counsel.

Rosmarin has an aversion to anyone using her full name aside from those few she permits within her inner circle. She never takes up her birth name (Erían), even after it becomes known to her and the wider Reunited Realm.

Rin is highly intelligent, keeps to herself and is rarely given to outbursts. When they happen, they tend to be notable. She is a naturally gifted and exceedingly strong healer, which was the first clue as to her true lineage. One of the few people she trusts is her foster brother.

She has, as one soldier puts it, spit. She's not afraid to confront something or someone if she thinks it necessary. Rin has a pronounced contempt for people in power who fail to do what she considers the right thing to do. She is direct, can be blunt and scathing in her assessment of such individuals. While she can be all sharp edges with anyone she doesn't like or who frightens her, she is remarkably tender with those she trusts and loves.

Name: Amarwen (Gondorian Sindarin – Earth Maiden)

Born: Third Age 1398, Edhellond

Race: Numenorean - descent from Hyardmendacil through her mother's line.

Lineage: Amarwen is the only daughter and heir to the Lady and Lord of Edhelland. She can claim descent through her mother's line from Hyardemendacil. Her father, not of noble birth, was a gifted ship wright within the Mariner's Guild.

Height: 5’ 8”

Build: Clean lines, curvaceous

Appearance: Blue black, glossy hair that falls straight to her hips, large clear grey eyes, fair skinned - Amarwen is a classically beautiful woman (and my current avatar).

Skills: Amarwen is educated and trained in all the various arts a noblewoman is expected to have mastered. She dances well, plays a number of instruments but does not sing. She is well and widely read, has studied the history of her people extensively and can speak several languages. She rides well, hawk and hunt, and has a skill with the bow. She most certainly is not a warrior and has received no martial instruction in combat or war. However, she has a sharp mind and this has been encouraged by her parents.

Character: Amarwen was a warm hearted, rambunctious and joyous child with an honest nature, largely innocent of the world. Amarwen has been raised to place her family ahead of herself. She is very easy to love but she is far from passive.
