Legolas

Model: Martin Challinor
Lens: Gilles Crofta

The iconic Elf from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of The Rings

Legolas is a prince of the Wood Elves, but he is of a different race of Elves, the Sindar or "Grey Elves". With his father, he settled among the Wood Elves to return to a simpler lifestyle. In this scene he is in his home, the Woodland Realm of Mirkwood, practicing with the bow. In moments, his father Thranduil will summon him to court and tell him that the creature Gollum has escaped, and that he is to meet with Elrond of Rivendell to discuss the matter. This will set his feet upon the path of joining the Fellowship of the Ring.

Legolas wears shoes rather than boots, and his step is so light that he can walk on snow and leaves without disturbing them.
