Understanding he turned to subtlety in perverting to his own will all that he would use, until he became a liar without shame. He began with the desire of Light, but when he could not possess it for himself alone, he descended through fire and wrath into a great burning, down into Darkness. And darkness he used most in his evil works upon Arda, and filled it with fear for all living things.

Grond was the great warhammer of Morgoth Bauglír, the first Dark Lord, which he wielded in the First Age. It was also referred to as the Hammer of the Underworld. He wielded it when he fought with Fingolfin, who challenged him to single combat after much of the Noldorin were defeated in the Dagor Bragollach.

During the Third Age, Sauron, Morgoth’s trusted servant and his successor as the Dark Lord, perhaps in homage to the Hammer of the Underworld, gave the name Grond to an enormous battering ram forged in Mordor to smash open the gates of Minas Tirith.

Irimë was a Noldorin elf, the daughter of Finwë, the High King of the Ñoldor and Indis; sister of Fingolfin, Finarfin, Findis, and half-sister of Fëanor.
Irimë was born during the Noontide of Valinor, probably in Tirion. She was the third child of Finwë and Indis and their second daughter. Little is known about her except that she joined the Revolt of the Ñoldor and went to Middle-earth with Fingolfin and his company.
Irimë’s fate is unknown but she may have been slain in one of the Battles of Beleriand, or returned to Aman after the War of Wrath.

Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength.

 In after days Elwë became a king renowned, and his people were all the Eldar of Beleriand; the Sindar they were named, and King Greymantle was he, Elu Thingol in the tongue of that land. And Melian was his Queen, wiser than any child of Middle-earth; and their hidden halls were in Menegroth, the Thousand Caves, in Doriath. Great power Melian lent to Thingol, who was himself great among the Eldar.

Queens of The Valar 

*Yavanna: The Giver of Fruits. She is the lover of all things that grow in the earth, and all their countless forms she holds in her mind, from the trees like towers in forests long ago to the moss upon stones or the small and secret things in the mould. In the form of a woman she is tall, and robed in green; but at times she takes other shapes. Some there are who have seen her standing like a tree under heaven, crowned with the Sun; and from all its branches there spilled a golden dew upon the barren earth, and it grew green with corn; but the roots of the tree were in the waters of Ulmo, and the winds of Manwë spoke in its leaves. Kementári, Queen of the Earth, she is surnamed in the Eldarin tongue.
