Maglor (Silm, UT)> KanaFinwe> Makalaure. Maglor was the second son of Feanor and was said to be the greatest minstrel (singer) out of all the Noldor. His voice was said to be heard all over Valinor and he had a wife, though her name was not recorded and he had no children. He had dark hair and his father name was KanaFinwe and his mother name was Makalaure. He like all his brothers and his father, was involved in the Kinslaying and he too swore the oath of the Silmaril’s. When he came to Beleriand, he resided, like all of the Feanorians in East Beleriand and resided close to Maedhros, his brother in the gap between Himring and Mount Rerir and thus place was known as the ‘Gap of Maglor’ thereafter. In the ‘Battle of Sudden Flame’, Glaurung came through the Gap of Maglor and Maglor fled to Himring, which alone of the Feanorian kingdom’s stood firm. Maglor took part in the Battle of Unumbered Tears, and he slew Ulfang, the accursed, who betrayed the Eldar and he like all his other brothers escaped wounded, yet alive. He took part in the attacks on Doriath and Sirion, and surviving both, he then fostered Elrond and Elros, whilst Earendil and Elwing were in Valinor and they loved each other greatly, as father and sons. After the War of Wrath, he together with his brother Maedhros slew the guards who guarded the Silmaril’s and took them. The Silmaril’s were hallowed by Varda, however, so that no evil hands could touch them and so after a while the pain of the Silmaril’s grew to much for him and he cast it into the sea. Realising the evil the oath had caused, he then wandered Middle-Earth, singing songs of lament of the fall of the Noldor and it is probable that he either killed himself or died of grief, as was the wont of the Elves.
He was so gentle, and he had feelings...he shouldn't have been wrapped up in all that Oath business, it just shows how evil Morgoth made his father, and the Silmarils weren't exactly innocent
