Erestor was an Elf of Rivendell.


Erestor was the chief counsellor of Elrond's household at the time of the War of the Ring; as such, he took part in the Council of Elrond. He did not support the idea of destroying The Ring, and preferred instead the notion of guarding it from Sauron, perhaps with the aid of Tom Bombadil.[1] Erestor accompanied Arwen to her marriage in T.A. 3019.[2]
