    The mortal part is referring to what/whom you could imagine an elf refers to when speaking about mortals in general.

    mortal wench concomitant

    equals to:

    Aragorn - Arwen - Faramir :-)

    But I am afraid that you are looking for a single person from your earlier clues...

    Sorry, wrong answer.

    A little compilation of the hints I have given so far:

    concomitant = companion, associate, spouse, partner etc

    wench = maiden

    mortal = what/whom you could imagine an elf refers to when speaking about mortals in general

    The solution to the mortal-wench part is found in Unfinished Tales. The correct character to match the mortal-wench part has been mentioned already, but not the concomitant.

    !!!

    Mortal = Men
    Wench = Maiden

    Man-maiden = Nerwen = Galadriel (already named in this thread, as you said), also -iel = maiden

    Galadriel's well-known from LOTR and she plays a big role. Her spouse is Celeborn who isn't that known, and I think Celeborn has a bigger role in Silmarillion.

    Grats!! You are absolutely correct and I'm glad you nailed it - I didn't believe it would be this hard.

    In my earlier post, I did mention Galadriel. You must have understood, it wrong, I was talking about Galadriel being the wench, I guess we all misunderstood, I was gonna post Celeborn as her concomitant but didnt since I though you rejected the idea of Galadriel.

    Sorry, I should have put concomitant as italic: "Galadriel is not the concomitant to a mortal-wench"!

    My bad.

    A fair answer, yet not the one I was looking for. Also, I've always thought these "neekerbreekers" as either grasshoppers or crickets which, I think, are not beetles and therefore don't contain chitin (or if they do, it's not worth mentioning). Nonetheless, if no one solves this, I shall think of handing the stick to you.

    We'll see to that as a last resort, but for now, I (and others hopefully) will keep pondering on this riddle first

    Beetles are not the only chitin containing organisms. Most insects and arthropods as well as lobster, crayfish, shrimp and crabs contain chitin in their exoskeletons. A natural assumption from your response though would be that your riddle does refer to beetles, or else I would guess Mirkwood w/ it's colonies of spiders.

    If it was referring to Beatles there would have been at least some back-beat involved.

    I was aiming for fungi with the chitin. I would have accepted farmer Maggot or his lands as an answer too, but the Marish is also correct. Boraxxe, it's your turn!

    Oven cured, sodium and H20 infused, crushed seed.

    Would that be Menelmacar, the constellation known as the swordsman?
    Or, is that just too easy?

    Correct!

    Obviously it was too easy since the first poster got it right.

    Duathrandir has other things that occupy his thoughts at this day and time, but I suggest we let this thread rest until he is back, in the honour of Duathrandir and the loss of one of his dear family members...
