Alexis The Silmarillion Chps 6-14
His real name was Curufinwe, but his mother called him Feanor, for Spirit of Fire
His mother could not bear another child because she put all her strength into Feanor
He became the most subtle in mind and skilled in hand
He made gems that were white and then would shine blue and silver under star light.
In his youth he married Nerdanel, the daughter of the smith Mahtan, and she gave birth to seven sons with him.
In secret, he used all of his strength and skill to create the Silmarils, three great jewels
He made them of the blended light of the Trees of Valinor and nothing evil would be able to touch them.
The began to secretly make weapons and shields following the rumors from Melkor. He also began to openly talk about a rebellion against the Valar.
He was commanded to talk to Mandos in the Ring of Doom about all the things he was saying
For breaking peace of the Valinor and for drawing a sword on a kinsman, his punishment was having to leave Tirion for twelve years.
After he was given his punishment, he went to Formenos with his seven sons. Here he had a hoard of gems and weapons and he also put the Silmarils in a chamber of iron.
Melkor comes to him for help, but his mention of the Silmarils makes him hateful of Melkor.
Feanor was commanded to come to Manwe's festival, but his seven sons stayed in Formenos.
The only light left, after the trees were killed, is the light in the Silmarils he made.
Melkor told him that his jewels were not safe in the hands of the Valar
All the gems were taken when Melkor broke the strong holds at Formenos.
He was very good at speeches, especially when he gave one to the Noldor, where he gave most of his hate to Melkor. He did this when he was exiled again.
He tried to continue on his quest to Middle-Earth, even when his half brother turned back.
He had a brighter flame in him than the rest of the Children of Iluvatar.
He asked Manwe for a pardon, saying he would would help the Valar in healing the hurt he caused in the world. He was granted the pardon.
He hated the Eldar because the were joyful and they he blamed them for his downfall with the Valar.
Melkor lusted for the Silmarils
He wanted to destroy Feanor and end the friendship between the Valar and the elves. He began to spread lies that everyone would believe.
In the Ring of Doom it was figured out that the rumors were all behind Melkor.
Since his tricks were figured out, he would hid from place to place as a cloud in the hills while Tulkas looked for him.
Melkor goes to Feanor for forgiveness and help
He ended up departing in shame, black with anger.
He went to Avathar to seek out Ungoliant, a spider like thing that would take light and spin webs of darkness out of it. Here he plotted his revenge with her.
During the festival, Melkor and Ungoliant casted a shadow of darkness and a cloud of blackness over the city of Valmar.
He then went to the trees and speared each of them to the core so all of the sap would drip out of them and the Ungoliant would suck up all the sap from each of the trees.
Orome tried to go after Melkor, but he was blinded and confused by the darkness the Ungoliant left behind.
Feanor gives Melkor the name Morgoth, meaning black foe of the world.
To escape the Valar he fled to Araman.
Here he relectently gave Ungoliant the gems to eat.
When Melkor was still in captivity, the Dwarves went to Beleriand to build great halls.
In another stage of his captivity, the Dwarves went to Thingol, where they were given that task to make weapons for his people.
When he and Ungoliant returned to Middle-Earth he gave out a cry that the Sindar heard as death. Ungoliant was not allowed to enter the realm of Thingol.
His Orcs could now roam where ever they pleased.
He was scared when Tilion crossed the sky to bring the light back into the world, so he went to hid in Angband.
He had control of Middle-Earth because the Valar wanted to stay safe in Valinor.
He could not wander a lot because of the power of the new light in the sky.
Yavanna tried to bring the trees back to life through one great flower of silver and a fruit of gold.
