So who is everyone's favorite character out of The Silmarillion? Why? I'd say Fingolfin. He was loyal to his family, and even though his half-brother Feanor committed many acts against him, he always stood by him. He was the High-king of the time when the leaguer was held against Morgoth in Angband. When his people were all but destroyed, he rode against Morgoth, and challenged him in front of the enemies gates. He held his own against A VALAR. Considering Sauron, a maiar, was massively powerful, Morgoth must've been around ten fold that. Fingolfin fought Morgoth and held his own, even though he lost in the end, he ended up giving the Dark Lord a limp. I'd say Fingolfin will always be my favorite.
