The Havens

  • Maedhros comes down upon the Havens harshly and suddenly. He slays many elves himself, demanding the Silmaril be brought to him.
  • Some of Maedhros’ followers stand side, unable to witness the cruelty of the slayings.
  • Some of Maedhros’ followers go so far as to stand against Maedhros and his brothers. They refuse to kill Elwing or take the Silmaril from her. Instead they tell her to flee. They are all slain by the Sons of Feanor, although Amras is slain in their attack.
