Curufin was a Noldorin prince and one of the seven sons of Fëanor. Along with the other sons of Fëanor, he swore the Oath of Fëanor, joined the Exile of the Noldor, and settled in East Beleriand.

He was Fëanor's favorite son, and resembled him greatly in skill, temperament, and appearance. He was also the father of Celebrimbor, master jewel-smith of Eregion, who forged the three Elvish Rings of Power.

Curufin was almost always in the company of his brother Celegorm, and the pair are most notable for their role as antagonists in the story Of Beren and Lúthien where they made foiled attempts to usurp the kingdom of Nargothrond, force Lúthien into marriage to coerce a political alliance with the kingdom of Doriath, and even attacked Beren and Lúthien directly.

Their misdeeds resulted in weakening the Union of Maedhros, which contributed to the disastrous outcome of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. They were eventually killed when the sons of Fëanor attacked Doriath in an effort to claim the Silmaril held there.

Though all to ruin fell the world,
And were dissolved and backward hurled
Unmade into the old abyss,
Yet were its making good, for this—
The dawn, the dusk, the earth, the sea—
That Lúthien on a time should be!

Beren's Song of Parting in the Lay of Leithian: Canto XI"
