Possibly one of Arda's most intriguing - and definently my favourite - characters, Feanor had a great influence during the First Age that could be felt even unto the War Of The Ring. Now this isn't technically gonna be a debate, but Id like to hear everyones opinion on this character. Do you consider him evil, selfish, greedy ? Or do you see him as a misguided soul ? Do you agree with the choices he makes, and are his follies entirely his own fault ? As I see it, Melkor had a great influence on Feanor - turning him against the Valar, and plunging his life into tragedy after the death of his father. Is Melkor entirely to blame, or is it all Feanor's fault ? What do you think of the animosity between the half-brothers, and do you think Fate had a major hand in his life. After all, without the Noldor's rebellion, Elves such as Gil-galad, Elrond, Galadriel and Glorfindel would not be in Middle-Earth during the War Of The Ring, and without these people, the Dark Lord may well have gotten his way. Discuss.
