Fingolfin was not the Heir of Finwe! Fanor was! Fingolfin was named HighKing of the Noldor after Fanors death.
So the question should be Fingolfin is to Feanor as _______ is to Thingol - and if that had been the case I would have said Olve - and been wrong anyhow [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Telchar: You're right in that... I chose my words poorly. I actually meant that Fingolfin was the next High King after Finwe - even though Feanor led the Noldor in the rebelllion, he was never called the High King.

If I recall correctly Gil-galad used Aeglos, a spear, and Tuor used Dramborleg, an axe.

Voronwe met with Tuor at Vinyamar and guided him to Gondolin....perhaps Strider is the one you are looking for then?
He met Frodo at The Prancing Pony and guided him at least to Amon Sul....
however, this may not be the idea you were after [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] in which case, i'll keep digging [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Well there can be several answers - I was actually thinking of Smeagol as a guide - but Strider fits just as well [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] so please continue [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Either Landroval or Menelvor. The book isn't very clear as to which of them carried Frodo and which carried Sam.

Sam!

I - lol - have to add a lil something to that answer, so here goes: Gwaihir carried Gandalf! Either one of the beforenamed three eagles carried Frodo. But also Sam carried Frodo on mount Doom, Asfaloth to the Ford, Bill The Pony (some where I think) and Aragorn In Moria + The snow.
Gwaihir Rescues Gandalf from Orthanc! Sam rescues Frodo from The Tower of Cirith Ungol, Tom Bombadil from The Barrow!

Sam fits both, so thats my answer - good ol' Sam!!!
