Here you can see Hirgalad in sorrow looking for the destiny of his people: to die defending Ilmuria. He often thinks: "Why isn't our destiny to get rid of darkness? I would kill them all if I could but... destiny is powerfull and the ones who shall kill the evil are all away!" So this bring sorrow to the king, also the allies that are going away from his hand. Just Aldar defending Ilmuria... not the Elves... not the Dwarves... The king is alone in the battle.
