About Mithrilian, the Author of
The Golden Woods

Mithrilian For Tolkien fans
I am Mithrilian of Lothrorien. I am a Nando. When our Lord Amroth and my sister Mithrellas Nimrodhel left to the Sea, I stayed in my beloved woods and assumed a leadership till we invited Lady Galadriel and Lord Celeborn to rule.

For everyone
In this reality, I was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1974. In 1988, I read The Lord of the Rings for the first time. In 1991, I took a part in the Hobbit Games. I am an active member of Russian Tolkien role-play society. By the way, you will not find what you have read at the first paragraph in the Tolkien texts, because I made up this "story of my life" myself. It is quite common among Russian Tolkien fans: they do not only choose the names of Tolkien characters, but often make new names using the roots from Tolkien languages. Some of them take it too seriosly, and they no longer pretend they are from Middle-earth, but almost believe they are. For me, it is a merry way of expressing myself. For example, I don't know Tengwar. Well, how can I? I am a Nando. Long ago, our leader Denethor had brought his people under the Lord Thingol's rule, and the latter ordered to his subjects not to use Noldorin and Tengwar, i.e. the language and the writing system of the Noldor.
