Glorfindel icon
Formerly of the Elf-city of Gondolin in the ancient First Age, Glorfindel fights for Rivendell, as its defender, and seeks to rid the lands of the evil taint that Sauron spreads, anywhere. He is the initial main character in the Battle for Middle-earth II Good Campaign.

Lore Edit

During the Fall of Gondolin in the First Age, Glorfindel had fallen in a battle with a Balrog after slaying it.  But fate would not have his destiny ended so quickly, as the Valar had brought him back to finish his mission.  As the war against Angmar subsided, it was Glorfindel who made the fateful prophecy that the Witch-king would not be killed by any man.  Now, after pushing out the Goblin invaders from Rivendell, Glorfindel joins forces with Gloin in an effort to create an alliance between the Elves and Dwarves.
