First, who’s Celebrimbor? He’s the Elven smith who forged the Rings of Power in the First Age and co-founded the realm of Eregion, which later became part of Gondor and Rohan as we know them today. For those unfamiliar with Tolkien’s work, Celebrimbor created six Rings of Power with his friend Sauron (the evil one) that would eventually corrupt all their possessors with greed and powerlust (except for Frodo and Sam).

Background on Celebrimbor
The Lord of the Rings tells the story of Middle-earth, a world inhabited by Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Hobbits and Wizards. The Fellowship journey through this world in order to destroy The One Ring, an evil relic which can control the other rings in their possession. The rings were forged by a mighty Elven smith named Celebrimbor who created them for a just cause: to oppose Sauron. However, one ring remained when he was captured and tortured by Sauron’s forces; a band of seven Dwarf warriors led by Durin’s son – Thráin I – attempted to reclaim it from Mount Doom where it had been forged, but only Thráin succeeded in escaping with his life. The final battle between good and evil is fought at Mount Doom on April 25th 3019.
