The House of the White Hyacinth and Butterfly
I've been wanting to dig deeper into Daerundros' exact family Origins, and I've formulated a nice family tree and explanation describing Daerundros' origins. Enjoy!
The House of the White Hyacinth
This House was founded by Linquë Áre in Valinor, along with her Noldo Husband Gweluon Eldir. The House of the White Hyacinth was not very known among the Noldor and the Vanyar living in Aman, however, and as such, their aristocracy remained minimal. Linquë gave birth to the first Heir, a maiden named Candeth Bamorien, in Valmar. Candeth had golden hair and grey eyes. She brought joy to the small family and through her expertise in healing and song, the House of the White Hyacinth gained some measure of Renown for having skilled musicians.
The Second Heir, Hyalmanis Canyë, was also an Elf-maid. She had dark brown hair, and dark grey eyes, and she was known to be excessively proud and arrogant, and to some extent rebellious. She trained in the use of two swords, and perished during the Battle of the Last Alliance of Men and Elves by the late Second Age. It was Hyalmanis who convinced Candeth and Turon to follow her to Helcaraxë.
The House of the White Hyacinth is translated as the Bar-en-Linquëlossë in Quenya.
The House of the Butterfly
This House came to existence when Fimon Orphen married Baranes Lanthiriel. This House was known to be a tad bit arrogant, despite it's Telerin origins, and yet it housed some skilled Shipmakers and Bowyers, and the Elves of this small House loved nature and it's surroundings. Fimon was one of the Falmari, while his wife was a haughty Elf-woman named Baranes, who took great pleasure in boasting of her accomplishments. Their Heir, Turon Aergalad, was conceived in Alqualondë, proud and to a degree also selfish. He followed Fëanor to Middle-earth, an action which riddled him with guilt, and caused the reputation of the House of the Butterfly to Diminish.
The House of the Butterfly is translated as the Bar-en-Wilwarin in Quenya.
The Houses United
Turon Aergalad and Candeth Bamorien met, become betrothed, and married sometime before the Kinslaying at Alqualondë (much to the disapproval of both families), causing the joining of the two houses. The members of the Bar-en-Wilwarin demanded from Candeth to incorporate her future child into the House of Wilwarin, and in turn, Bar-en-Linquëlossë wished for Turon to make his future child a part of the Linquëlossë. The resulting requests gave way to an argument between both families. In-laws from both houses insisted to the other house to merge and take on their house's name, a contest of words which reigned for some time until it was eventually decided that a New house be formed from the Marriage of both heirs. However, before the new House Name could be bestowed upon the newlywed couple, Turon's anger towards the Bar-en-Linquëlossë was too much for him to handle (Candeth feeling the same towards the Bar-en-Wilwarin), and he and Candeth (Accompanied by Hyalmanis, who had coerced them into following her) had already disappeared towards Helcaraxë, the Grinding Ice, and were never sighted in Valinor again until they set sail sometime by the end of the Second Age. The name of the new House was to be the Bar-en-Niquis, The House of the Snowflake.
At first, during their five-thousand years in Middle-Earth, Turon and Candeth were guilty as to abandoning their families, and when Daerundros was conceived, tended to frequently argue as to which house the new child should belong to:
"I say he must belong to the Bar-en-Wilwarin." Turon said proudly, "He shall become a great bowyer."
"A Bowyer? Nay, dear husband, I say she will become a fine Singer, and so she shall be a part of the Bar-en-Linquëlossë!"
When Daerundros was in her adolescent years, she was frequently bombarded with questions from her parents, as to which House she chose to be a part of. The art of warfare had always fascinated her, and when she wished to train as a Warioress, it was expected she would become a part of the Bar-en-Wilwarin. However, to her father's surprise, she chose to be of the Bar-en-Linquëlossë, which made him grieve; For his House would not have any heir to carry on traditions in Middle-earth. Daerundros' decision created a rift between her father and herself, and it was Candeth's sister Hyalmanis who taught Daerundros the art of the Blade. Daerundros looked up to Hyalmanis as a great teacher, but when she perished in S.A 3441, Daerundros was already losing the arrogance that she had inherited from her aunt.
The Houses' Clan Ancestry
The House of the White Hyacinth was mostly descended from the Vanyar and the Noldor. Linquë, the founder of that house, is a Vanyar who came from Minyar Clan that awoke in Cuivienén. Gweluon is a Noldo with parents who came from the Tatyar Clan. Candeth and Hyalmanis are Half-Noldo, Half-Vanyar. Daerundros is one-fourth Vanyar, two-thirds Noldor, and one-sixth Telerin.
The House of the Butterfly was mostly made up of Elves from the Nelyar Clan. Fimon was a Falmari, and his wife Baranes was a Noldo. Fimon had a brother who counted himself as a Sindar. This brother married a Silvan Elf sometime by the First Age and had a son who was missing by T.A 1023. Baranes was born in Cuivienén with her Avar sister, who became a part of the Kinn-lai Elves, and her brother, who joined the Nandor. What became of the Kinn-lai Avar is not known.
The Houses' Family Tree
(Note: I haven't included any other relatives. I wanted to keep the tree simple until I could make a bigger one. In reality, the tree is supposed to be much larger. This tree only shows Daerundros' closest relatives.)
The Mystery of Dhârultah Kïh'lan
As you might have seen on Daerundros' complete family tree, Daerundros had a relative who became part of the Kinn-lai Avar. This was her Great aunt, Dhârultah Kïh'lan, sister to her paternal Grandmother, Baranes, who never heard of her again after the Sundering of the Elves. I will try to explain who she was as well as possible.
Dhârultah Kïh'lan was a Kinn-lai Avar who refused to go on the great journey with her parents and siblings, and stayed in Cuiviénen. She was eventually taken in by the Kinn-lai Avar, and they took her into the forests of Yaquir. Dhârultah was a member of the council of the Scholar's caste, and she was close friends with Galan'tanleaw, Minyelaírë's mother, who was leader of the Scholar's caste. This friendship served as a faint connection between Minyelaírë and Daerundros.
