::The question on how to categorize is difficult, I don't have any anwer at the moment. The basic problem is that characters (or other concepts) which don't belong in the legendarium end up in subcategories under Category:Eä, which is wrong.--[[User:Morgan|Morgan]] 13:37, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

:::Yes. I placed it in {{redlink|[[Category:Noncanon Men|Noncanon Men]]}}, but I'm not sure if that was the best option. Since that page only includes characters from adaptations and was specificaly made for men from adaptations. --[[User:Amroth|Amroth]] 13:59, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

IMHO this page should compleatly re-written and become more like a disambiguation page for the article [[Ælfwine]] and a new article[[Ottor Wǽfre]], since Eriol is the name given to both and most links to this page actually do mean Ælfwine, who is the "actual Eriol" of the [[Book of Lost Tales]], not the earlyer conception.
 
The new article [[Ottor Wǽfre]] could take over the entire content of the article [[Eriol]], while the disambiguation page could loock that way:<br />

'''Eriol''' ([[Quenya|Q.]]: One Who Dreams Alone) is the name of the first [[Men|Man]] to find the [[Straight Road]]. The figure is [[Canon|non-canonical]] and can refer to:
 
* [[Ælfwine]], the son of [[Éadwine]], an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Saxons Anglo-Saxon] during the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10th_century 10th century].
 
* [[Ottor Wǽfre]], the son of [[Eoh]], an [[wikipedia:Angles|Angle]] during the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4th_century 4th] or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5th_century 5th century].
