Character of the Month Biographies


Every month, SWG features a new character from The Silmarillion in hopes of inspiring our members to consider characters to whom they might not have given much thought in the past. Our newsletter features a brief biography of that month's character, and these biographies are compiled here for ease of reading and research.

Characters are listed alphabetically.
