House DetailsEdit

The House of the Golden Flower is led by Glorfindel, best beloved of all the Gondolindrim. His is the largest House in Gondolin after the House of the King and has the largest military under any single Lord. As such, the people of the Golden Flower had two representatives on the Lords' Council: Glorfindel and his sister Tindariel.

Glorfindel has many followers of Vanyarin descent, although golden hair is not a prerequisite for being a member of his House. Many of the Golden Flowers are highly skilled as either fighters or in their civilian trades, and some have been personally trained by Glorfindel in advanced combat and espionage techniques. The House also encompasses an animal division, including several hounds of Valinor.

The Golden Flower pub is the Trefoil Celandine, known for its elaborate cocktails created by the talented Flower mixologists Mîlpaich and Manadhel.

Fall of GondolinEdit

In the Fall of Gondolin, the Flowers evacuated by the Western route, via the mountain pass. They led the way and met the brunt of the attack from the army of Morgoth under Daedhel.
