How Legolas Greenleaf enters the Fellowship of the Ring
Legolas, son of Thranduil, King of the Elves of Mirkwood, belongs to the royal line of Sindarin Elves. After capturing Gollum, Gandalf had him imprisoned in Thranduil's royal dwelling. The kind-hearted elves could not bear to keep any creature locked-up indefinitely, so they began to allow him freedom to climb trees. One day a band of orcs coordinated a rescue killing Gollum's elven guard. Legolas was charged to bring this news to the Council of Elrond at Rivendell and was there chosen to represent the race of elves in their journey to destroy The One Ring. Legolas brings the wisdom of his over 5 centuries of life (considered young for an Elf), a keen sense of evil and amazing skill with the bow and arrow.
