Gimli the Elf
The inspiration for Gimli the Dwarf, member of the Fellowship. Gimli the Elf was a fellow prisoner with Beren who was the Prince of Cats, imprisoned in the kitchens of Telvido. Gimli the Elf was very old. He probably died in jail. Tolkien seemed to have completely dropped the idea of having Gimli once he created Gimli he Dwarf.
