Tulkas

Tulkas the Valiant

Tulkas (Q."Steadfast") is the consumate Warrior. He fights without weapons, anger, or fear, and knows no equal in strength or speed. Faster and stronger than any beast, he is a formidable foe and a valuable ally.

Appearance

Tulkas' fana has gold hair, a gold beard, and a joyful, ruddy complexion. His deep, joyous laugh and dancing eyes lend him a gentle (albeit pow- erful) visage.

Personality

The Valiant One always fights as if he was at play, laughing at obstacles as if they were games or playful chadenges. Thus, even though Tulkas is not one of the Aratar, Morgoth feared him more than any other Vala. Tulkas' complete lack of concern regarding threats and dangers pre- sented the Black Enemy with an opponent he could not intimidate. Morgoth could not use the Champion's ire as a tool against Tulkas, as he did with other foes. Exceedingly slow to anger, Tulkas is a fast friend who honors a bond of friendship with his very being. No one is more loyal. His weakness is rooted in his modest intedect, not his compas- sion. Indeed, Tulkas' mind makes him a poor coun- selor and reduces his stature among the Valar. The last to enter Ea, he is not counted as one of the Exalted Powers, despite his supreme physical talents and even though Tulkas subjugated Morgoth during the Battle of the Powers.
