(Redirected from Seer)
A Seer, or Prophet, was one gifted with extreme foresight. While many Eldar and Edain had foresight, the seers predicted important events far in the future:
- Agaldor, who foresaw the coming of the Númenóreans and the salvation of Man.
- Amnon who predicted the Fall of Gondolin.
- Glirhuin of the First Age, who predicted that the Stone of the Hapless would never be defiled or sink beneath the sea.
- Malbeth of the mid-Third Age, who predicted that Arvedui would be the last king of Arthedain and also foresaw the fate of the People of the Dead.
