Legolas was my favorite from my first reading, back in the 1960's [In reply to] Can't Post

And the relationship between Legolas and Gimli was the most interesting to me. One of the things that appealed to me about Legolas was that he seemed much less grand than the older elves and more of the realm of the Fae.

He is funny, to me, in the passage during the blizzard on Caradhras.


Quote
Legolas watched them for a while with a smile upon his lips, and then he turned to the others. 'The strongest must seek a way, say you? But I say: let a ploughman plough, but choose an otter for swimming, and for running light over grass and leaf or over snow-an Elf.'

With that he sprang forth nimbly, and then Frodo noticed as if for the first time, though he had long known it, that the Elf had no boots, but wore only light shoes, as he always did, and his feet made little imprint in the snow.

'Farewell!' he said to Gandalf. 'I go to find the Sun!' Then swift as a runner over firm sand he shot away, and quickly overtaking the toiling men, with a wave of his hand he passed them, and sped into the distance, and vanished round the rocky turn.
