actually i've heard glorf WAS in lotr. he was supposedly one of the elves holding the banners when arwen and aragorn kiss in minas tirith at the end of rotk. it might just be a fan theory though so don't quote me on this...

It’s true. It was this guy. But it wasn’t so much Glorfindel, he was a background elf named Glorfindel, if that makes sense. And in fact, I kinda hate having this guy just standing in the background more than the lack of the real Glorfindel. No offense, but this guy looks WAY too young and innocent and just.. idk babyish to look anything like Glorfindel. Glorfindel is thousands of years old, and while elves don’t age like that, this elf in the picture doesn’t even look like he is passed what would be his majority yet. He looks maybe like an adolescent tbh.

Just. I would have KILLED to see the REAL Glorfindel. The powerful, returned-to-life, badass and beautiful, sacrificed-himself Balrog Slayer Glorfindel. Not this. 


All your words are but to say: you are a woman, and your part is in the house. But when the men have died in battle and honour, you have leave to be burned in the house, for the men will need it no more. But I am of the House of Eorl and not a serving-woman. I can ride and wield blade, and I do not fear either pain or death!

In all the days of the Third Age, after the fall of Gil-galad, Master Elrond abode in Imladris, and he gathered there many Elves, and other folk of wisdom and power from among all the kindreds of Middle-earth, and he preserved through many lives of Men the memory of all that had been fair; and the house of Elrond was a refuge for the weary and the oppressed, and a treasury of good council and wise lore.”
