The highly-anticipated Lord of the Rings prequel series, The Rings of Power, is about to hit our screens. Fans of the books and movies are poised to take some deep metatextual dives into the fresh material, which covers events that took place in the second age — thousands of years before the happenings in The Hobbit and LOTR. Versions of familiar characters like Elrond and Galadriel are grappling with the aftermath of the First Age, where forces of good battled The Great Enemy Morgoth. The eponymous Lord of the Rings, Sauron, was Morgoth's lieutenant and is a worrying loose end. Non-canonical characters add to the world-building, too, as viewers are swept across Middle Earth for another round of angst and adventure. The cast is more diverse this time, and since this is fantasy fiction, it adds richness to the storytelling. So, gather snacks for your second breakfast and your pipe, and find out which new character you resemble the most, personality-wise.
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
Let's establish some basic family dynamics and context. Elrond and his twin brother Elros are half-elven. Elros chose mortality and founded the island kingdom of Númenor, and his brother Elrond had to watch him age and die. The Númenóreans, are the ancestors of beloved characters Aragorn, Boromir, and Faramir.
Elrond married Galadriel and Celeborn's daughter, Celebrian, so Galadriel is Arwen's grandmother. An orc killed Aragorn's father, and he was fostered in Rivendell because of longstanding family ties. That is how he came to meet and fall in love with Arwen.
Then there are the harfoots. Before hobbits existed, the nomadic harfoots were still looking for a place like The Shire to settle in and call home. The Rings of Power introduce audiences to this race and also takes us back to Khazad-Dûm, AKA Moria, at its height. Here, you'll see the dwarf royals of Khazad-Dûm at their prime before the place became one that strikes fear into the hearts of all.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around.

(Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
