(Don't hate me for this :wink:) I am halfway through it and my fav is Morgoth. I have a softspot for
JRRT's villains (i.e. Witch-King, Smaug, Gollum etc.) though among the elves I like Feanor.( sad though).

I'm a heretic. I don't have a favorite. Try as I might, I can't feel involved with any of them. (I only know who I don't like.)

Yes me too. I never really felt connected to any of the characters. Possibly this is because The Sil is written in a detached style, as if it were a historical record. I was more fascinated with the story than anything else, by which i mean I was thirsty for more detail but not necessarily attached to individuals. I would like to have known more details, such as were any Valar actually present at the final battle and who was it who eventually dragged Morgoth out of his deepest dungeon? I'd like to think it was Tulkas or Orome but if no Valar were present it may have been Eonwe.

Eärendil.

Partly because he's the very kernel all of Tolkien's mythos sprang from.

Partly because he's such a great hero, in the true sense of the word.

Partly because I'm much more attached to LotR than to the Sil, and Eärendil is so much a part of that story. I stood in line outside the bookstore to get the Sil the day it was released, but my thirst for it was to find out more of what was behind LotR, and that's still its most important purpose for me.

Fingolfin, just because of the way he died.

Nienor Niniel, largely because she ran around naked in the forest and so on.

I think I like either Maedros the best because of how he kind of teetered between good and evil or Tulkas because he's one of the few people who can beat the snot out of Morgoth.

Galadriel, fierce rebel and warrior that she was. I'm also quite fond of Feanor, Melian, and Yavanna.
