Elves of Sirion

The last exiles of Gondolin and Doriath

A short-lived Elven culture that grew up in the lands around the Mouths of Sirion during the last days of the First Age. Its people were Elves that had fled from the destruction of the great realms of Beleriand, especially Gondolin and Doriath. It was itself destroyed, not by Morgoth, but by the remaining Sons of Fëanor who sought the Silmaril of Elwing, who dwelt with the Elves of Sirion.
