Elves are a type of supernatural being in Germanic mythology and folklore. They are one of the races that inhabit a fictional Earth, often called Middle-earth, and set in the remote past. Elves are born about one year from their conception. The day of their conception is celebrated, not the actual birthday itself. Their minds develop more quickly than their bodies; by their first year, they can speak, walk and even dance, and their quicker onset of mental maturity makes young Elves seem, to Men, older than they really are. Elven bodies eventually stop aging physically, while human bodies do not.

Cate was a royal Elf of both the Noldor and the Teleri. Her grandfathers were kings. She was one of the leaders in the rebellion of the Noldor and their flight from Valinor during the First Age, and she was the only prominent Noldo to survive and eventually return, at the end of the Third Age. She was "the mightiest and fairest of all the Elves that remained in Middle-earth", and the "greatest of elven women".

To rule the kingdom of the elves, she needed to find "An Ideal Husband". "The Talented Mr. Ripley", "The Man Who Cried", was the chosen one. She was supposed to choose an elf, but she fell in love with a man. She went on "An Unexpected Journey" to the Galapagos Islands to think about it cause the elves wouldn't accept to be ruled by a human. All the elves in the kingdom got to know about this travel and talked about it. It provoked a controversy known as "The Galapagos Affair". The tabloid of the kingdom even wrote "Notes on a Scandal" cause it was forbidden by Elf's law to marry a human. To escape the polemic, Cate made a "Journey to the South Pacific" "In the Company of Actors" who consumed "Coffee and Cigarettes". All the elves in the kingdom got to know about this travel and talked about it. This new journey (controversy) made them completely forget about "The Galapagos Affair".

"The Return of the King" Fingolfin, supposedly killed by Morgoth at the gates of Angband put an end to the controversy. With this unlikely event Cate would have to wait to become the new queen of the elves. But Fingolfin had something more important in mind than to worry about who would be the next ruler. He had a war to win: "The Battle of the Five Armies" against the vast Orc army of Azog, and their second army bolstered by Orc Berserkers and giant bats led by his son Bolg. The battle was very confusing cause it also involved an army of dwarves and an army of men. It got even worse when many Orcs, Ogres, and Trolls attacked Dale. With so many different armies involved you have to call it a coalition war. Everybody against everybody?! No, Good against Evil.

How did the battle ended? The Good defeated the Evil. But sadly Fingolfin was killed, and all the elves of the kingdom talked again about the polemic (Cate's marriage with a man). Tired of it, Cate decided to do like the Queen of England. She doesn't need a husband to rule. She had three older brothers, and Fingolfin was her uncle. So, how did she do to become the ruler of the kingdom?! She jumped over the line of succession and erased the word "primogeniture" from the "Elf Dictionary". Then, she proposed the humans to do the same and erase the word (primogeniture) from the Oxford Dictionary. Not a bad idea.

If you wonder what a royal Elf like Cate looks like, ask J. R. R. Tolkien, an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor who met her in the universe of Eä.

"The hair of the Lady was of deep gold, and no sign of age was upon her unless it were in the depths of her eyes. For these were keen as lances in the starlight, and yet profound, the wells of deep memory." ( J. R. R. Tolkien)

But what is the universe of Eä? The universe of Eä is "the World that Is", as distinguished from "the World that Is Not". But where the hell is the word Eä coming from!? It's the word spoken by Eru Ilúvatar by which he brought the universe into actuality. Now you know everything you have to know. No more questions please.

But does anyone know about the origin of the rings, from "The Lord of the Rings"? Cate knows about it, and she will tell us:

"It began with the forging of the Great Rings. Three were given to the Elves, immortal, wisest, and fairest of all beings. Seven to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And nine, nine Rings were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else, desire power. For within these Rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race. But they were all of them deceived... for another Ring was made."

And then another one,... and then another other one,...till the end of times. We always end up deceived cause we expect far too much from everything, included from the Rings.

"To bear a ring of power is to be alone"

And all of that to end alone. It's not worth it, definitely not.

"Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."

As long as he's got a ring that makes him invisible. Isn't it Bilbo?

"If you know you are going to fail, then fail gloriously."

Just like Azog did. The best example out there.

"The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was I lost, for none now live who remember it."

Is she talking about the consequences of global warming? Yes she is. She had a marvellous gift of insight into the minds of others. And when she read the minds of humans, she saw how they would destroy their world.

"So, goodnight Cate. "The Fellowship of the Ring" is not the "Paradise Road" to "Heaven".
