These puns are getting out of hand.
(actually how I treat my favorite characters because my love is weird and toxic)
The Silmarillion - Valar - Ulmo
Ulmo is the Lord of Waters. He is alone. He dwells no-where long, but moves as he will in all the deep waters about the Earth of under the Earth. For all seas, lakes, rivers, fountains and springs are in his government; so that the Elves say that the spirit of Ulmo runs in all the veins of the world.
The Silmarillion - Valar - Manwë
He was appointed to be, in the fullness of time, the first of all Kings: lord of the realm of Arda and ruler of all that dwell therein. In Arda, his delight is in the winds and the clouds, and in all the regions of the air, from the heights to the depths, from the utmost borders of the Veil of Arda to the breezes that blow in the grass. Súlimo he is surnamed, Lord of the Breath of Arda. All swift birds, strong of wind, he loves, and they come and go at his bidding.

This segment covers the story of Turin Turambar. It’s also the same story you’ll find in the Children of Hurin, though with a bit less detail.
We’ve cast Diane Kruger as Celebrían before. As for Elladan and Elrohir, I’ve seen people cast Aneurin Barnard as them (as identical twins) but if you want another alternative, perhaps you could also consider Aaron Johnson?
It’s weird, but I don’t think we’ve a set Círdan fancast yet. But I’ve seen Tumblr user hewalksinstarlight cast Harry Lloyd as Círdan, and it’s been growing on me.
"Yet Sauron was ever guileful, and it is said that among those whom he ensnared with the Nine Rings three were great lords of Númenórean race. And when the Úlairi arose that were the Ring-wraiths, his servants, and the strength of his terror and mastery over Men had grown exceedingly great, he began to assail the strong places of the Númenóreans upon the shores of the sea."
lotr/hobbit meme: day 11 - favorite woman: haleth
"But Haleth was proud, and unwilling to be guided or ruled, and most of the Haladin were of like mood. Therefore she thanked Caranthir, but answered: ‘My mind is now set, lord, to leave the shadow of the mountains, and go west, whither others of our kin have gone.’” - The Silmarillion, J. R. R. Tolkien.
