Aerendir's story is a sad one. He is Teleri, one of the high elves that lived on the shores of the undying land of the Valar. He witnessed first hand the destruction of the Teleri... Aerandir is completely my character and there is no record of him anywhere within Tolkien's writings. However, he is most certainly inspired by Tolkien. Aerandir was lured out by the sea, as many elves were, and, after the destruction of his household, he devoted himself to the sea completely and traveled to the shores of middle earth and the surrounding islands- yet, he never returned to the beautiful shores of his homeland.
