Galadriel Lady of Light

"Even the smallest person can change the course of the future..."

Noldorin princess, the daughter of Finarfin. Galadriel was the only woman to play a prominent role in the debate of the Noldor following the theft of the Silmarils, and, eager to return to Middle-earth, she was one of the leaders of the host of Fingolfin. Along with her uncle Feanor (the creator of the legendary Silmarils), she was considered the greatest of the Noldor and one of the greatest and most powerful Elves.

During the War of the Ring, Galadriel gave shelter and great gifts to the Companions of the Ring, and she refused the One Ring when it was offered to her by Frodo. Because of this, and because of her endless opposition to Sauron, at the end of the Third Age the Valar permitted her to return to Valinor. Galadriel fulfilled her age-old desire in Third Age 3021, when she went over Sea with the Last Riding of the Keepers of the Rings.

She looks sad and weary as if she cannot cope staying in Endor any longer.
