Kinship
Outward Appearance

Features: Ithilwe stands tall, though he is often thought of as on the short side for his kind. Ithilwe is lithe and lightly muscled, especially in his arms due to his use of the bow. He is gifted with long, shining silver hair that seems to glow like the light of the moon, for which he was named. He usually wears it down, though he does have a few tiny braids pulled back to the sides of his head. In these braids, he weaves gold and bronze strands of ribbon. Ithilwe has pale, smooth skin with no visible scars and large grey eyes.

 

 

Garments: When hunting, or in battle, Ithilwe wears a set of light armor and on his back he wears a silver quiver.

 

His bow is one he crafted ages ago, but has stood the test of time. He carries a small silver ring on his hand, crafted by the Gwaith-i-Mirdain in Eregion. The last thing you can see on Ithilwe, is his golden circlet given to him by his parents as a coming of age present in Gondolin.

 

Ithilwe prefers to wear tunics and light robes of blue and silver. He has a love for jewels of silver and saphire. As of recently, he can be seen wearing a star pendant, one that he is 'borrowing' from Amathlan. He also bears a beautiful gem encrusted brooch in the shape of a bird, another gift from his beloved. His most prized posession is the ring on his finger, indicating his promise and bond to Amathlan.

 

Other Things to Note:

Languages: Exilic Quenya (Fluent), Doriathrin and Noldorin Sindarin (Fluent), Westron (Conversational), Khuzdul (Conversational), Black Speech (Fairly profficient in reading)

Skills: Archery (he has spent most of his life training as an archer in both Gil-Galad's and then Elrond's armies.) Languages (He reads many books and tries to learn as many languages and dialects as he can, so that he may have civil conversations with peoples all over middle earth.) Healer (After seeing Idril Celebrindal healing many survivors of Gondolin, he was inspired to learn all that he could of the healing arts.)

Traits/Qualities: Ithilwe is shy and a bit quiet, and is hard pressed to initiate a conversation, but once you get to know him, he is kind and always willing to lend a helping hand. Ithilwe is seemingly innocent and naive, but he knows the horrors of the world just like anyone else who lived through the first age of the sun. As such, there is an intense anger in him for Sauron and his minions, which will come forth occasionally when darker subject matter is brought up. He is annoyed easily and very obstinate.

Background

 

Ithilwe was born in Gondolin not too long before its demise. He was born to 2 archers of the House of the Heavenly Arch, led by the Lord Egalmoth. His mother was a Sindar elf who hailed from Doriath. His father, a Noldor of old, one who endured the crossing of the Helcaraxe.

When he was young, Ithilwe was only interested in reading and books. He did not have many friends, as he was extremely shy and quiet. It seemed he would become a scholar and advisor in the court of King Turgon, instead of the warrior archer his father desired him to be. 

Barely out of his majority, he fell in love with a member of the House of the Golden Flower. The two were to be wed in the spring of F.A. 511, but then Gondolin was attacked. As he was no warrior, his parents and superiors begged Ithilwe to leave through Idril's tunnel. He never saw his parents or his lover again. 

Young and with nowhere to go, Ithilwe followed the survivors and eventually made the journey to Lindon, where the new High King Gil-Galad ruled. There, he used his anger and resentment of what evil had done to his beloved home and trained to become one of the most fearful archers in High King Gil-Galad's army. 

When Lord Elrond founded the realm and refuge of Imladris, Ithilwe followed him to reside there and became a warrior under his rule. This would also be where he learned the art of healing. When evil returned and elves were called to arms, Ithilwe proudly marched alongside his lords and friends, though he was grievously wounded in the fight.

Ithilwe currently resides in Imladris once again, though he is prone to wandering the lands and protecting the peoples of Middle Earth. At the moment, he has joined the Company of the East Road as a warrior. He is still intent on avenging his family and friends, though Gondolin was ruined long ago.
