- Additional information
A Prince of the Woodland Realm, Legolas is the son of Thranduil, who rules the twisted wilds of Mirkwood in the north from his palace beneath the ground. While his loyalty to his father is absolute, doubts gnaw at Legolas, doubts given voice by the young Silvan Elf who captains the King’s Guard, Tauriel. Though Legolas is Sindar and his father would never consent to see him wed to a lower caste of Elf, the Prince nonetheless watches the spirited and beautiful Tauriel with a longing that goes beyond courtly friendship or the trust between fellow soldiers of the Realm.
When Tauriel openly defies King Thranduil and pursues the Dwarves, Legolas must make a choice. Duty binds him to honour his father’s policies, but the woman he loves implores him to travel east with her in pursuit of a Dwarf who he sees as a rival for her affections.
The journey that his heart leads him down will see Legolas match blade and barb with Orcs in the service of Azog the Defiler, go to war on the slopes of distant Erebor, and defend the very Dwarves he was to imprison. Please note: images are of a pre-production prototype. Each statue is hand painted and minor variations will occur.
