/ Feanor
   Eldest son of Finwë (the only child of Finwë and Míriel), half-brother of Fingolfin and Finarfin; greatest of the Noldor, and leader in their rebellion against the Valar; deviser of the Fëanorian script; maker of the Silmarils and of the palantíri; slain in Mithrim in the Dagor-nuin-Giliath. His name was Curufinwë (curu 'skill'), and he gave this name to his fifth son, Curufin; but he was himself known always by his mother's name for him, Fëanáro 'Spirit of Fire', which was given the Sindarin form Fëanor.
   Greatest of the Noldor.
   Eldest son of Finwë, lord of the Noldor, and half-brother to Fingolfin and Finarfin, Fëanor was accounted the greatest of the Deep Elves. In Valinor, he captured the light of the Two Trees to make the three Silmarils. When Melkor stole these, and slew his father Finwë, he rebelled against the Valar and led the greater part of the Noldor into Middle-earth, swearing in the dreadful Oath of Fëanor that he would not rest until the Great Jewels were recovered.
   On his return to Middle-earth, Fëanor immediately drove onward to Angband, though outnumbered greatly by Morgoth's Orcs and Balrogs. He was slain at last by Gothmog, the Lord of Balrogs, and such was the ferocity of his spirit that after his death, his body was consumed by flame.
