Glorfindel and Other Elves


In Reply To
Speaking of characters from Lotr who would definitely be alive in Second Age, some minor elven characters could be added, they were around back then after all. So characters like:

Erestor
Galdor of the Havens
Gildor Inglorion
Lindir
Glorfindel (texts of HoME allude to him being the same Glorfindel from Gondolin returned to Middle-earth, but it's too difficult to tell whether the Amazon could use this)


Yes, most (if not all) of these characters would have hailed from the First Age. Most might even have been part of the Councils of the Wise that we know included Elrond, Círdan, Galadriel and probably Celeborn and Amroth of Lórien, though Glorfindel would just as likely have dwelt in Valinor during the time of the series; the subject of when he and the Blue Wizards arrived in Middle-earth is a controversial one.

I'm not convinced that Lindir would have been counted among the Wise; as far as we know he was little more than an elven minstral who had befriended Bilbo in Rivendell. This is supported by the fact that Lindir is not named as one of the Eldar who took part in the Council of Elrond.
