[edit] Plot Summary

The Teleri had reached the eastern lands of Beleriand. Elwë often wandered and searched ahead, looking for Finwë, his old and dear friend. He suddenly heard a singing in the distance, which distracted him from his prior goals. The singing cam from Melian, a Maia who left Valinor with her birds to bring new beauty to the life in the forests. When Elwë saw her, he was instantly smitten by her beauty, and she also fell in love with him, and they would create a great kingdom of the Sindar, the Grey Elves, Elves of Twilight.
