As i see it we have come to a point where we'll have to make up some secondary characters at a point, just because maybe otherwise some of our main characters will be alone and have no dialogue partners... So i guess instead of inventing names we could use some characters from the legendarium who are yet unalligned and make up some background for them? Ailios/ Gilfanon - this is an elf from the Eriol story, he lives on Tol Eressea so should be one of the Noldor exiles Arminas - he is stated as having originally been of Angrods people, but he later obviously left his lord to stay with cirdans folk Enerdhil - if he was a jewelsmith and possibly a pupil of feanors as i have supposed, we could put him in Curufins retinue, and make so up a connection to Celebrimbor Evromord - another Elf from the Eriol story Gelmir -another elf from Angrods folk who later ends up with cirdan Gereth - an elf from ossiriand who rescues Elwing from the feanorians. I think he could be a Nando or a renegade from Celegorm or Maedhros folk Gimli - the blind Gnome from lost tales whom Beren finds at minas tirith, if one would use him i guess he would either be a fingolfinian of finrods people or maybe of angrod and aegnors folk Lindo - another eriol story elf, valwes son Valwe - another eriol story elf, maybe Valwe and Lindo could be Feanorians? Vaire - another eriol elf, lindos wife Tulkastor - another eriol elf, vaires father Narthseg - a lost tales gnome who betrays doriath to the dwarves. I have alrady suggested to use his name for a servant of Eol if we ever needed one, or perhaps a Feanorian? Quennar - a feanorian loremaster, if we ever need a councilor-type of character for one of the brothers one could use this name Ufedhin - another treacherous gnome from the early lt nauglamir story. I think his name could perhaps be used for a servant of Eol or the of the Feanorians if needed Already alligned are: Aranwe - voronwes father, almost certainly a follower of Turgon and a Fingolfinian Edrahil - loyal follower of Finrod Egalmoth - follower of Turgon Elemmakil - captain of Gondolin, so Follower of Turgon Findobar - well this was a name for Gil galad when he still was Fingons son, but if we need a follower of Fingon, one maybe could use this name? Galdor of Gondolin - i guess this is a different Galdor than cirdans galdor, though maybe one could merge the characters or leace him out to avoid confusion Gelmir -follower of Finrod Guilin - follower of Finrod Gwindor - follower of Finrod Haldir - in one version elder brother of gilgalad and Finduilas, killed by orcs Hendor - housecarle of Turgon Inglor - possibly gildors father and a follower of Finrod Legolas - elf of Gondolin, maybe we omit him to avoid confusion Ornil - elf of nargothrond so possibly a Finrodian Penlodh - elf of Gondolin so Turgonian Pengolodh - i suppose also Turgonian Salgant - turgon, gondolin We still have the otherwisely umknown noldo heroes from the whetting spell: Saithnar, Loruin, Nargil, Gaurin, Ogbar, Rodrim... one could use those names , though i like to think of them as possible members of Finrods co pany, whom i imagine as the noldo version of the magnificent seven. Or could some of the Gondolindrim elves have been turncoats of formerly other allegiance? I doubt Turgon would tolerate such people... otherwisely they could be quite interesting characters. With arminas&Gelmir and Gereth at last i can see possible interesting sidestories..
