Have you notice that almost all characters in Tolkien's world who have the letter T as their first letter in their name, (surnames included) have suffered various degrees of unluckiness??! Here they are:
Turin: Lost his love, his friends, his family and his sanity.
Turgon: Was betrayed and was destroyed along with his glorious kingdom.
Thranduil: Was assaulted three times by Sauron, but held on.
Thingol: Lost his beautiful daughter, and was killed because of the Nauglafring.
Luthien Tinuviel: Lost her immortality, and her love.
Hurin Thalion: Lost his trust of Men and Elves, lost his family and his former glory.
Elros Tar-Minyatur: His people were corrupted by Sauron and his kingdom fell into ruin.
Theoden: Untimely slain by the Witch-King.
Thror II: Tried to seek his fortune in Moria but was killed by Azog.
Thrain II: Lost his Ring and died a miserable death in Sauron's dungeons.
Thorin Oakenshield: Did not live long enough to taste the fruits of his labours.
At least Thorondor and Tulkas were spared. Is there something I missed?
tar-Aldarion,perhaps? Sorry,hope you don't mind.Strange thing,though-you might be quite right...
