"Even so fall the people of Nargothrond, but for them there shall come no Spring."
― Ornil in The Grey Annals

Ornil was an Elf of Nargothrond who met Túrin after the Battle of Tumhalad.

History[edit | edit source]

After Gwindor's death, Túrin started to rush back to Nargothrond, gathering any survivors of the battle in the process, including Ornil. As leaves were falling from trees in a great wind, Ornil compared the changing of the seasons to the Fall of Nargothrond, causing Túrin's pace to hasten.[1] Nothing else is known about him.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The name Ornil is in Sindarin. While its meaning is not entirely clear, according to Eldamo it might contain the element orn ("tree").[2]
