A prince from the Elven Kingdom of Mirkwood, Legolas journeys to Rivendell as
a representative of his people to seek the council of Lord Elrond in these
troubled times. Invited to sit upon the Council of Elrond to debate the future
of the newly found One Ring, the proud Elf fears its corrupting influence and
joins Gandalf and Elrond in calling for its destruction. Quick to jump at his
throat is the burly Dwarf Gimli, also speaking for his kinsmen, who distrusts
Legolas and all Elves, the memory of ancient grievances between their races
adding to his naturally competitive streak.
