|Age||Ancient - She was a child when the Elves taught the Ents to speak|
Names & Pronounciation
Gaomee [gaoɱe], is the name that she has given herself and she is known by, by most of the dwarves. It has no meaning, which is unusual for an Elf.
Tuilinthel [tuɨlɨnθel], Thranduil's people used to name her, as they found Gaomee to be too hard to use in their own tongue. It means Bird-sister.
Ælbdís [ælbdɨs], sounds Gaomee's true birth name. It's meaning is Elf-Priestess/Guardian.
"She is blind? Then she will see more than I ever will." - Amlarad, the Woodsman
"All of her kin have the same features. Beige skin, like the color of sand, silver-grey eyes and white-golden hair. Odd, if you ask me. They all look the same in a way. But what is even more odd, uncanny, I'd say, are these awfully sharp-looking teeth. Should not be trusting one of them ..."
- The Dwarf Brumin of the Erebor
Long before the first sunrise, Gaomee was born with the name Ælbdís in the Ered Mithrim, the Grey Mountains in the North of Rhovanion. Her parents were of Avarin descend and so Gaomee's true kin remains veiled and faded into the past.
There in the north and among her kin, she was raised as her mother as priestess and guardian to the winds, for Ælbdís' people held Manwë greatly in honour and love as he symbolized freedom to them, what they cherrished most.
When the dragons came into the lands of the Withered Heath, she fled into Greenwood and came to live at the courtyard of Oropher, where she was taught the ways of an archer and pathfinder, but Ælbdís remained at heart believer to Manwë's ways. An accident on her wandering let her become blind and it were the Dwarves who found and cared for Gaomee, but they could not restore her ability to see.
Many centuries passed in which the blind Elf remained in the Iron Hills, teaching herself and honing her skills.
As a test to herself she wandered Rhûn and its outskirts. The young man Ásin, she befriended and took him away from a life as lowly servant. During their adventures he was her eyes and she taught him the art of how to fight without his sight.
Gaomee remained with Ásin until he died of age.
Returning to the Whithered Heaths and Northern Mirkwood she joined the elusive group of the Tirn. After a visit at the borders at Rohan, where she had intended to spread the faith to the Valar, she met the girl Creowyn, who she adopted as her god-mother, for the girl's real mother was gone. Now the priestess must sacrifice the time she has for the service to her kin and her divine lord, in order to aid her god-daughter in the search of the one who gave birth to her.
