Thorin & Co. (characterization) Precious Gems & Vala Can't Post

I think the Dwarves, themselves, would prefer to be represented by Precious Gems (than critters!). I think that some of them have a little Vala representation as well. [Critique... by all means]
The other topic was good by the way...

Sapphire: Blue or Purple. when well cut is a brilliant gem in color and depth.
Patron Vala: ULMO, Lord of Waters, most willing to interviene in the affairs of Arda (earth). Like Ulmo, Gandalf is very in tune with the will of Iluvatar (the Creator) and has been to the limits of the Heavens.

Opal: Opaque clear white. like a diamond yet has a misty brilliance with a unique color. [the Arkenstone looked like a giant Opal]
Manwe Sulimo: Lord of Air / King of the Valari and great arch-foe of Melkor. Like Manwe, Thorin is the champion of his people as well as having a great heart.

Ruby: Red and Purple. An esquisite gem with a fierce color.
Melkor. Lord of Evil / "rises in Power" the devil that wanted dominance of Arda and destruction of opposition. Azog, the orc, is the great (relentless) foe bent on turning the world of Thorin to the earth (buried).

Diamond: clear yet with true cut can have a rainbow of color.
Varda Elentari, Queen of the Stars was the light bringer and most enlightened and noble. Galadriel was close to Varda in the LotR and endorsed her powers.

Peter Jackson, Phillipa Boyens, or Fran Walsh (or anyone else on the Hobbit production) NEED to come out to the Seattle Comicon, @ www.emeraldcitycomicon.com
