Personality and TraitsEdit
Lolindir was known by the rest of the 250th as brash and quick to act. Many would have described him as vulgar in some ways. After the first hundred years of the Siege of Angband, he received a minor scalp wound, after which he decided to shave his head, something very rare among the Ñoldor.
Just like his Captain, Lolindir did not wear as much armour as most of the troops in the 250th. Being of Lieutenant of the archers, Lolindir did not have to do very much hand to hand combat, but stayed near the back with the rest of the archers. His archery skills were nothing uncommon among the Ñoldor, but his watchful eye as a scout was well noted.
Lolindir was quite well built for an elf, and helped out with many fatigues that the common soldiers were charged with.
