After the war
against Sauron in the second age, Elrond founded the city of Rivendell.
He fought in the last alliance of man and took Isildur to Mount Doom to
get rid of the One Ring but his wisdom went unheeded. "Men are
weak." Elrond is known as half elven as he can trace his line
back to the legendary Luthien and Beren. He is a legendary healer and is
able to drawn Frodo out from the depths of shadow and is the bearer and
protector of the Elven ring of power, Vilya, Ring of Air. He is married
to Galadriel and Celeborn's daughter, Celebrian and has three children,
Elladan and Elrohir. Elrond if
played by Hugo Weaving best known for his work in The Matrix and The
Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, "He
understands not just was has happened but what might happen."
In the Two Towers we see Elrond telling Argorn to let Arwen
leave MIddle Earth and him behind - where "She can carry her love"
Aragorn: "But only a memory." He convinces Arwen to leave by
telling her her fate if she chooses to stay (Arwen
page has the details of this) - as he watches her go - he converses with
Galadriel and makes the decision to send a host of Elves to aid the fight at
Helm's Deep - elves to be lead by the Elf Captain, Haldir. We will definitely
see more of Elrond in Return of the King.
Return of the King Elrond is confronted by Arwen “Tell me what you have
seen” and he reluctantly admits that he had seen her son. He relents to
her decision and reforges the broken shards of Narsil and travels to the
Rohirrim encampment of Dunharrow to give Aragorn the new sword, “Arwen is
dying, her fate is tied with that of Sauron and the Ring.”
who you were born to be”he intones to Aragorn and leads him on the path
to Dimholt, “You need an army.” At the end he travels to Minas Tirith,
delivering his daughter to the King and makes his goodbyes before joining the
other ringbearers on the last ship into the West.
