Elf of Doriath in service of King Thingol. Daeron was a loremaster and minstrel. He invented the Cirth Writing system. Daeron loved Thingol's daughter Luthien, who did not love him back. Nevertheless, she would often dance to his music. Luthien left Doriath in secret, and Daeron set out searching for her. Daeron never found her and never returned to Doriath. Daeron passed over Ered Luin into Eriador and wrote songs of his beloved Luthien. He died, never laying eyes on her again.
