Revision as of 06:10, 13 January 2008 by Quidon88 (Talk | contribs)

The Falathrim ('Coast Elves', Sindarin) were the shoreland people of the Falas who took Círdan the Shipwright as their lord from the beginning, and was also the last to leave Middle Earth forever. Of Telerin descent, these Elves remained in Beleriand when their kin journeyed to Valinor at the persuasion of the Maia Ossë. They were the second of two "subdivisions" of the Teleri to stay behind, the other being the Eglath, who stayed behind to find their lost lord Elwë. Their last home on Middle-Earth before finally leaving for the Undying Lands was the Grey Havens, but before that the dwelt mainly in the ancient havens of Eglarest and Brithombar.
