Legolas is the son of Thranduil, King of the Sindarin kingdom of Mirkwood. His date of birth is not specified, though it is probably some time in the Third Age. In Third Age 3019, he travelled to Imladris and became the elven representative among the Fellowship of the Ring. He became the first elf to enter Khazad-d˚m in over a thousand years. In Lûrien, Galadriel foresaw that Legolas would never again be content with Middle-Earth once he saw the sea and heard the ancient call of the Vala, Ulmo. He also became fast friends with Gimli the dwarf, a friendship that would last beyond the confines of the world.

Legolas journeyed with Gimli and Aragorn in search of the kidnapped Merry and Pippin, and fought beside them at the Battle of Helm's Deep. He accompanied them through the Paths of the Dead, and fought at Pelargir and the Pelennor Fields. While at Pelargir, he first saw the sea, and true to Galadriel's vision, the desire for Aman was awakened in him.

After the War, Legolas led a band of elves from Mirkwood to Ithilien, where the helped to heal the war-ravaged land and make it the fairest of the human lands. After the death of Elessar in Fourth Age 120, Legolas at last followed his heart and took ship for Aman. With him on this journey went his friend Gimli, the only dwarf ever to make that journey.

Legolas was tall and golden haired, of noble bearing, though not as tall or regal as those elves who, like Galadriel and Elrond, had seen the Two Trees, or bore the blood of those who had. He dressed in the green and brown of his people. Legolas, like all elves, was quick to laugh or sing, but equally quick with a bow or haughty word, if he felt the situation called for it. He called Gimli and Aragorn "children", but in jest, not derision.

Legolas was able to run across a rope as easily as running on land, and was able to run across a snow drift without sinking in or even leaving a footprint. He bore a longbow given him in Lorien by Galadriel that was longer and more powerful than those used by the folk of Mirkwood and which was strung with elven hair.


1. Legolas would be a good candidate for the use of the ranged martial arts maneuvers in The Ultimate Martial Artist.
