1. In the Shadow of Númenor

"The westering sun kindles the first star of the night: silver against green, bright beneath grey eyes. You are too much my brother, Thorongil, and so I wonder: What are you? 'Eagle of the Star' your name proclaims, and should not the name speak out the inward man? Whence the blood in your veins that carried you hither?

Know I not that red-running source? Soronúmë, the Eagle of the nightsky, saw his eyrie drowned long hence—Elenna, where stood Sorontil to welcome Manwë's messengers until the end. Therefore look not to me, puzzled, when I name thee anew: Prodigal Son."
