Never given the need to unravel Legolas' origins, the master creator of Middle-Earth failed to do so, and now much of the Elf's past is shrouded in mystery, the knowledge lost upon the esteemed Tolkien's death. Tolkien left not a key, but lock picks, small bits and pieces of knowledge from which some small part can be gleaned. Using these lock picks, a glimpse at the bloodlines of Legolas Greenleaf can be obtained - and it can be demonstrated that, as is often the case, bloodlines do not matter quite as much as it might seem.
