Sting Slain Game

A relatively easy game.

State the name of a character who is slain in Tolkien's works, and the rest of us try to think of who slayed them and if location is given, where they were slain.

I'll start with one that's not-so-hard.

By Melkor, before the doors of Formenos in Valinor. Melkor stole the Silmarils at this time.

Drauglin was knocked off by Huan, Hound of Valinor, if I remember correctly. Another nasty dog-fight...

Indeed. Draugluin was mortally wounded, and returned to the high tower where Sauron watched. There he died at his master's feet.

Your turn, Telchar.

And on a side note I thin Scatha the worm was killed by Fram Lord of the Northmen - who afterwards send the Worms/dragons teeth to the dwarwes as an insult .... Its still Gelmir.

The riders with tokens sent out by one of Morgoth's commanders and the heralds of Morgoth in front of Eithel Sirion. They did a really bad number on him, too!

No, the person being slain is Azaghl.

Glaraung is the answer, of course, given by Turambar. He needs to give me the when or where part, and then he can proceed to posing his own question.

Are you thinking about Duilin of Morthond, who (along with his brother) was tramped to death by mumakil on the Battle of the Pelennor Field.?

No, that's not whom I meant. He's in the Silm.

edit: I found his name at last: it's Daeron I'm thinking of.

Huan, the Hound of Valinor.

Carcharoth slew him in the process, which is a shame because Huan was pretty enjoyable to read......
