Lúthien was the daughter of Elu Thingol, King of Doriath, and his

Queen, Melian the Maia.[note 1] Throughout the years before she met

Beren, she lived as all the Elves of Doriath did: in a state of perfect

blissful peace. She was a woman of incomparable beauty and grace,

with night-dark hair, sparkling grey eyes, luminous skin, and a clear

heartbreakingly lovely voice that was said to cause winter to melt into

spring - "the song of Luthien released the bonds of winter, and the

frozen waters spoke, and flowers sprang from the cold earth where her

feet had passed". She also often enjoyed dancing in the woods of the

realm to the music of her good friend Daeron's flute. He himself soon

came to love her jealously, but she did not return it.
