The father of Saeros

A Nandorin Elf, the father of Saeros of Doriath. The details of Ithilbor's life are unclear. His son was a refugee who sought the protection of Thingol after the First Battle of Beleriand. It seems likely that Ithilbor fought in that battle, but his fate after that is unknown. He may have fallen beside his lord Denethor on Amon Ereb, or travelled to find refuge in Doriath with his son, or perhaps even remained behind in Ossiriand.
