First Age

A thousand years later, Glorfindel was sent by Lord Elrond to search for Frodo and his companions. He pursues some of Nazgul and draws them away from Ford of Bruinen. He then found and led the company for days, stopping only briefly to let Hobbits rest. When Nazgul approached again, Glorfindel put Frodo on his white horse Asfaloth, and bade horse took Frodo to Rivendell. Asfaloth outran black horses of Nazgul and managed to cross the Ford of Bruinen which led to Rivendell. Severely weakened Frodo, conscious but delirious due to the wound he was carrying from Morgul-knife, turned back to defy Riders who pled for him to come with them. Nazgul entered shallow Ford but was there un-horse and swept away by a torrent of enchanted water which guarded the entrance to Imladris charge with the power of Half-elven and indeed by Gandalf Grey. He later led injured Frodo and the rest of the company safely to Rivendell. At the Council of Elrond, Glorfindel sits in position of honour alongside Elrond and Gandalf. He suggested that One Ring should be either sent to Tom Bombadil and cast into the depths of the Sea, but Gandalf believes that One may resurface on land after hundred or thousand years. He was briefly considered to be a member of the Fellowship of Ring, but was later ruled out: his power would be of no use in a mission of secrecy to Mordor.

Description

Glorfindel was known for his golden hair, which, at some point, was described to be yellow. He was the Elf of Great bodily, nobility, heroism and spiritual structure, wisdom, and bravery. Gondolindrim loved him dearly and wept upon witnessing his passing at Cirith Thoronath. He was a capable leader, as seen when he led his House during the Fall, and loyal to his King and brothers-in-arms. He was very courageous and mindful of refugees as they escape. He chose to protect all escaping Gondolindrim, though he would have defended them even had they been fugitives of any rank. He displays more of his power and courage when he faces against Nine Riders to save Frodo, and when he participates in the Council of Elrond.

Lore

Suddenly into view below come white horse, gleaming in the shadows, running swiftly. At dusk its headstall flicker and flash, as if it were stud with gems like living stars. Riders ' cloaks streamed behind him, and his hood was thrown back; his golden hair flow shimmering in the wind of his speed. It appeared that white light was shining through the form and raiment of the rider, as if though through a thin veil. Fellowship of Ring in First Age Glorfindel dwelt in Gondolin, and is remembered in the tale of that city's fall in Battle of Unnumbered Tears. Retreating from the sack of the city through mountain passes, survivors, including Tuor and Idril, were ambush. Glorfindel engage Balrog leading ambushers in single combat, and both fall to their deaths. On account of this personal sacrifice, which subsequently allowed birth, through Tuor and Idril, of Earendil, and thus both Elrond and the line of all Kings of Numenor, Glorfindel was reincarnate, and returned to Middle-earth in the Second Age to strengthen Gil-galad and Elrond, once Sauron's evil purposes had been perceive. In year 1975 of Third Age, Glorfindel led the company from Rivendell to the Battle of Fornost, which was instrumental in bringing about Angmar's defeat. As Witch-king flee, Glorfindel counsel against his pursuit, prophesying that his doom was far off, and that not by hand of man would it be achieve. During the War of Ring, Glorfindel discovers Frodo and his companions in the wilds on their journey to Rivendell, and gives Frodo use of his great white horse, Asfaloth. Steed bore Frodo safely over Ford of Bruinen, outpacing pursuing Nazgul, who was then defeated for time being by wrath of the river, Glorfindel and Aragorn.

Character

In Tolkien's early drafts, there were two Glorfindels: Glorfindel of Gondolin and Glorfindel of Rivendell. These two were initially thought to be different individuals. While writing Lord of Rings, Tolkien borrowed name from one of earlier Elves. As the legendarium grew more diverse, however, Tolkien decided that an Elf who had fought in many wars might be a good companion for Gandalf. He explains in Last Writings that Glorfindel of Gondolin and Glorfindel of Rivendell are One and same: upon deciding on Glorfindel's Return to Middle-earth, Tolkien came up with three options regarding Glorfindel's Return to Middle-earth: SA 1200, SA 1600, or TA 1000. Although all were probable, Tolkien favoured the SA 1600 date. In the first draft of the Council of Elrond, Glorfindel was among what was to become the Fellowship of Ring, along with Durin, son of Balin and Trotter.
