Description

Elrohir is the son of Elrond and Celebrían, the twin brother of Elladan and brother to Arwen. They were born TA 130, which makes them about 2888 years old when we meet them in Lotro. The twins rarely part but fight wickedness together, fuelled by the memories of their mother's torment and that she left them early for the West. Elrohir and Elladan are so lookalike that it is hard to tell them apart, both dark-haired and grey-eyed. (Note: it is never stated who is oldest or that they truly are twins but that is inferred from Tolkien's fictional realm.) Elrohir is a Sindarin name for "Star-horselord".

At the latest it was in year TA 2933 they became best friend with Aragorn who that year lost his father, Arathorn. Then Elrohir and Elladan brought him under Elrond's protection and they soon adventured together. However, this friendship never broke the bonds with their father, some information was kept secret between father and sons, never to the bad though. The twins often rode with the Rangers of the North, rode scouting for their father, or carried important messages or information from him. They were somehow in contact with Strider (Aragorn) early on and they continue to support him in the quest of this tale. In future tales it will be Elrohir who brings Aragorn a silver horn so that he can summon the half-dead Oathbreakers. Never will Elrohir or Elladan hesitate nor exit a quest, rather Elrohir will say: "From the North we came with this purpose, and from Elrond our father we brought this very counsel. We will not turn back."

The tale does not tell the end of Elrohir's life, whether he chose mortality living with the Men of the new age, or whether he simply delayed his departure to the West joining his dear mother and father. We are told that he remains in Rivendell for the time being.

Together with Elladan he has arrived to the the area to explore the background of a curious dream their father told and he wanted to scout the tunnels for signs.
