(1125/2 - ???) Ajathar Alessarë was the last ruler of the Grey-Elf realm of Wyntharë, who abdicated his throne and sailed to Eryn Norvë around the year 1000 of the Third Age.


Ajathar was born the grandson of Talarion Brightstar and the second son of Queen Ariel. Even in his youth, Ajathar was a tragic figure, overcome with guilt over the death of his older brother Arkelion at the Battle of Orgorod in the year 252/3.

In the year 884/3, Ajathar suffered yet another tragedy when his mother, Queen Ariel was killed in the Great Rift when her palace collapsed around her.

Ajathar survived only because, at the time of the disaster, he was visiting Starfall. In the aftermath, he assumed the Veiled Throne, ruling over a completely devastated nation, with most of his people dead or maimed.

This catastrophic earthquake completely devastated the elven cities of Alarë and Wyn Falas. Worse, the elven city of Selunë was completely consumed by the Sea of Ralas.

After this catastrophic event, Ajathar and the few surviving Grey-Elves became bitter and morose. Many elves began to yearn to return to their ancestral homeland of Eryn Norvë.

Around the year 1000 of the Third Age, Ajathar and most of his folk left Corwyn forever.

However, a few Grey-Elves decided to remain on Corwyn. They settled on the newly-formed Vesarivon Isle, located just south of Westvale Island, and appointed the House of Elejar to rule over them. The remaining Grey-Elves named their realm: "Antharë,"
