A companion of Nimrodel

A Silvan Elf who, at least according to legend, accompanied Nimrodel on her journey to the southern havens. Mithrellas, it is said, became lost in the woods of Belfalas, where she was found by Imrazôr the Númenórean. So Elvish blood entered the line of the Princes of Dol Amroth, it was claimed, since her son Galador was the first of the long line of Princes.

Tradition said that after the birth of her two children, Mithrellas disappeared one night, and was never seen again. Her ultimate fate remains unknown, though it is possible she attempted to follow her mistress Nimrodel on the long journey into the West.
