SindarThe grey elves known as Sindar began the great journey into the West long ago, but lingered on the shores of Middle-Earth for love of its lands and loyalty to their lord and lady.

Though not touched by the holy light of the Two Trees, the Sindar are known for their loyalty and devotion, and than other elves they are known to be fair in voice and appearance, occasionally silver-haired, with a natural love of water and music. Having benefited from the care of Melian the Maia through long years of peace and plenty, the Sindar are skilled in arts of protection, illusion, and enchantment, as well as creating objects of great and lasting beauty.

More populous than the Noldor, the Sindar are frequently lords and nobles among the elves of Middle-earth, and their language is the most widespread elven tongue.
