Maedhros from the Silmarillion. Also called Maitimo, NelyafinwŰ and Russandol. One of the seven sons of FŰanor.
He is missing a hand because he was captured by Morgoth and hung by the wrist of his right hand upon the face of a precipice of Thangorodrim. And the only way for his cousin Fingon to save him was by cutting of his hand above the wrist.
"His body recovered from his torment and became hale, but the shadow of his pain was in his heart; and he lived to wield his sword with his left hand more deadly than his right hand had been." (From 'The Silmarillion')
I'm planning in doing more elves from the Silmarillion (one of the best books ever
) and next will probably Beleg C˙thalion.
