He was a strong warrior in spite of one hand and a patient and wise ruler. It was the Union of Maedhros which tried to assault Angband. However, after the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, the oath he took possessed him. He then participated in the sacks of Doriath and the Havens of Sirion. Later after the Great Battle, Maedhros and Maglor stole the two remaining Silmarils. The lack of morality robbed him of the right to possess the jewel and it burnt his hand. Knowing what had become of him he threw himself and the jewel into a fiery chasm, passing into the west.
