Isabeau's Journal

 November, 12 2005

OK, folks-this is the general forum now for questions that don't seem to fit in any of the other threads. I'm going to sort some of the earlier posts into the appropriate forums, but it might take a while, so bear with me. I'll delete the ones that have already been reposted by their authors.

Hi Isabeau!

I have another Eagles question, somewhat related to the Litharel rant I indulged in yesterday. Did the Eagles know about Halaran's death prior to the Ring War? Did they know that Halaran had children? If so, would they have communicated any of that information to any of the Dunedain?

I got the sense that Halaran continued to work with the Eagles sometimes even after moving south, as I think Celeborn mentioned seeing him once while he was on an errand for the Eagles just prior to Hethlin's birth. If they did continue to keep in touch at least periodically in the years before the Ring War, I'm guessing that the Eagles must have at least noted that Halaran's homestead was destroyed and no one was around. I could see them reasonably concluding that the entire family had been killed. Perhaps, given the rift between Halaran and his in-laws, the Eagles didn't feel obliged to convey that information to Litharel?
