Notes: The Man was not named “Bëor” here because Bëor is rather a title, not a proper name. The author did not research deeply about the man’s direct bloodline, so she would apologise to her readers for the mistaken names of his sons. (She only knows that Belen is truly Balan’s third son.) The story is inspired by Philosopher at Large’s works, so the tone might be similar to it on some points.
