I was discovered by Beren as he wandered the woods of my father's kingdom, and we grew to love one another. When I took Beren before my father, he was apalled that his royal daughter should wish to wed a mortal, and so set Beren what he thought was an unachievable task, to recover a Silmaril from the Iron Crown of Morgoth himself. So Beren left Doriath in pursuit of his hopeless quest.
Beren was wounded mortally, after all the adventures of trying to recover the Sillmiril that he cut from the iron crown of Morgoth. So he passed away, and soon after I too wasted of grief. Our spirits were gathered in the Halls of Mandos in the Uttermost West of the World, and there I sang a song of such extraordinary power and beauty that it moved even the implacable heart of Mandos himself. So I was granted a unique fate, to become mortal and return to Middle-earth with Beren, where we dwelt for a time in happiness on the green island of Tol Galen in the River Adurant.
