Finarfin, youngest child of Finwë. He is the brother of Fingolfin, Findis, and Irimë. He is Fëanor’s half brother.
He married Eärwen, who was a princess of the Teleri.
Finarfin is the father of Finrod, Orodreth, Angrod, Aegnor, and Galadriel.
When Fëanor, angered at Finwë’s death and the theft of the silmarils, gave his angered speech, Finarfin tried to convince the rest of the Noldor to calm down and not be rash.
Finarfin departed with Fëanor and Fingolfin for Middle Earth anyway. He led the smallest force, and was more reluctant.
When Mandos appeared before them, Finarfin heeded his warning and led his force back to Valinor, where they were all pardoned.
Finarfin then became the king of the remaining Noldor in Aman.
At the War of Wrath, Finarfin led a very large battalion of the combined forces of Noldorin, Vanyarin, and Telerin elves.
