That's exactly what I want to do. I don't want her to just be in service of Beren or the narrative. We need to give her weight and her own identity. It's not something Tolkien often prioritises but something we must do for an adaptation. She can't be constantly ethereal and utterly unknowable. We have to know her. I'm not saying we make her broken and flawed. I am saying she needs to be a character. So we have to nail down what for OUR interpretation of this story, her motivating factors are. As Corey always says, the priority is to tell a good story. We certainly have the material to draw from. We just need to flesh out who she is, enough to sustain a full season minimum.I 'm okay with both as long as it doesn't feel forced. When Luthien is not Luthien anymore then we're not telling Beren and Luthien. I still think there is some room for interpretation, just take her serious as the literary figure she is.
