But Half-elven (Middle-earth) would go against Wikipedia naming conventions, which is to use the singular - that's why Elves (Middle-earth) was moved to Elf (Middle-earth). Either way this page would be made into a redirect to Half-elf. Uthanc 02:57, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

The First Age
Two important marriages in the First Ageof Middle-earth resulted in the mixing of elvish and mortal Edain blood. The first of these was between the mortal Beren of the House of Bëor and half-elf/half-maia Lúthien, daughter of the elf Thingol, the King of Doriath and High King of the Sindar and his Queen Melian the Maia. Beren died in the quest for the Silmaril, and in despair, Lúthien's spirit departed her body and made its way to the Halls of Mandos. Mandos allowed them a unique fate, and th...
After the conclusion of the War of Wrath, Manwë determined that the surviving Half-elven would have their choice of fates: to be counted among Elves, and granted eternal life in the Undying Lands; or to be counted among mortals, and granted the ineffable Gift of Men. This choice could be delayed, although not indefinitely. Eärendil would rather have chosen the kindred of Men, but he chose the Elves for his wife Elwing's sake, who also chose the Elves. Eärendil would thereafter forever sail the heavens in his ship Vingilot, the Silmaril of Beren and Lúthien on the prow. In Middle-earth, he was seen as the evening star, and the light of his Silmaril was captured in the Phial of Galadriel. Elwing built a tower in the Shadowy Seas and often met him on his return. Elros chose to be counted among mortals, and became Tar-Minyatur, the first king of Númenor. He finally took his death at the age of five hundred years. The heirs of Elros were not given this choice, but their lifespan was enha...
Unlike in some other fantasy worlds, Tolkien's Half-elves are not a collective race of their own. In Dungeons & Dragons and other fantasy role-playing games, there is a race of Half-elves (singular half-elf). Elsewhere, beings who are half-human and half-[another race] are sometimes called Halflings; the term "Halfling" in Tolkien's legendarium pertains only to hobbits.Dior Eluchíl, son of Beren and Lúthien and grandson of Melian the MaiaEärendil, son of Tuor and IdrilElwing, daughter of Dior and Nimloth, Queen of Doriath↑ The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Chapter XXII: "Of the Ruin of Doriath"↑ The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Chapter XXIII: "Of Tuor and the Fall of Gondolin"↑ The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Chapter XXIV: "Of the Voyage of Eärendil and the War of Wrath"↑ The Silmarillion, Akallabêth(The Downfall of Númenor)

Elrond Half-elven was the son of Eärendil and Elwing, and a great-grandson of Lúthien. He was born in the refuge of the Havens of Sirion in Beleriand late in the First Age, soon before its sack by the Sons of Fëanor. Elrond and his twin brother Elros were captured and raised by Maglor a Son of Fëanor. Though at first there was no great love between them, eventually Maglor took pity on them and cherished them, and eventually grew to love them. By the end of the First Age and the War of Wrath,...
Elrond is a Sindarin name that means \\"Star-dome\\" or \\"Elf of the cave\\", from el (\\"Elf\\" or \\"star\\", interchangeably) and rond (\\"cave, vault\\").
Elrond was a skillful warrior in battle and had commanded various armies of the Free Peoples well, including the Last Alliance. He was just as effective at leadership and gave much wise counsel. He had the gift of foresight through which he could view lands and events far away from Rivendell. He was also adept at healing others, though whether through medical knowledge or magic isn't known. The latter may be more probable in that Elrond managed to cure a Morgul wound, something which is almos...

Elrond appears extensively in Peter Jackson's film trilogy. He appears in all three films, portrayed by Hugo Weaving.Jackson's characterization of Elrond departs in several ways from Tolkien's own. Like the other elves, Elrond is somewhat aloof in the films. He distrusts the race of men, although he knows that the time of the elves is over. In a significant change from the books, he is distressed at the thought of Arwen becoming mortal for the sake of Aragorn, and initially suggests she leave...
