The Lord of the Ring Legolas: When I Think of an Elf

The Lord of the Ring Legolas? When I think of an elf the last thing that I see is a blonde-haired and handsome gentleman. But Legolas is the exception to the elf rule.

When I think of an elf I see little oddly-shaped people running around in little green and purple suits assembling toys in an antiquated looking factory for an extremely overweight boss who does nothing but eat cookies and drink milk all day long. The Lord of the Ring Legolas is clearly the exception to the elf rule.

Elves are stereotypically little people, but at a hulking six feet plus Legoals is a giant elf. No one knows when Legolas was born, nor when he departs the earth. We do however know that The Lord of the Ring Legolas is a good elf, unlike that wicked witch or something, well you know the story.

The Lord of the Ring Legolas is extremely tall and handsome; beautiful some may argue. His hair color is often debated among true fans, while most concur that it was blonde. Unlike his little toy-making cousins way up in the North Pole, The Lord of the Ring Legolas wore chiefly green and brown; bright purple and green may have looked a bit out of place in Middle Earth.

Legolas’ life, like so many other of Tolkien’s characters led him on a quest toward greatness. And in 3019 The Lord of the Ring Legolas sojourned into Riverdale to represent the elves at the Council of Elrond where he was selected as a delegate to the Fellowship. Similar to the rest of his party, The Lord of the Ring Legolas is overcome by emotion. With Frodo it is the power of the ring, but with The Lord of the Ring Legolas, it is an enchantment with the sea. From the time of his first visit, he was overcome by a desperate urge to sail, which was finally realized with Gimli the dwarf after the War of the Ring had concluded.

Although little is known about The Lord of the Ring Legolas’ early life, we are aware of The Lord of the Ring Legolas’ outstanding bravery and honor. His grace under fire on the battlefield was also tested time and again as he embarked on the dangerous journey toward the Council of Elrond. The Lord of the Ring Legolas proved himself both a loyal and trustworthy friend in his relationships with the hobbits and with Aragorn. But it is irrefutable that his strongest relationship was formed with Gimli the dwarf.

Little else is known about The Lord of the Ring Legolas’ life other than his constant devotion and pursuit of honor. His birth continues to be shrouded in mystery, concealed from us by Tolkien. But we do believe that The Lord of the Ring Legolas was at least a few hundred years old when first introduced by Tolkien. Peter Jackson depicts The Lord of the Ring Legolas as at least 2,931 years old, but there is no literary evidence to support this assertion and it must be understood as an invocation of creative license.

The Lord of the Ring Legolas is the most mysterious of the characters encountered as little is known about his background. But The Lord of the Ring Legolas is nonetheless a crucial component of Tolkien’s mystical tale.
