    (1) Aeglos is the name of a flower, which would account for the word "bloom".

    (2) The word itself means "snowthorn" (source: Unfinished Tales index), although the internet also gives the meanings "snow-point" and "icicle". Any of those words could account for the word "frozen".

    (3) It's the name of a spear, which would presumably be made of metal, thus accounting for the word "metal".

    While Mithril is indeed harder than stone, it is not what I had in mind.

    Hint 1: The words "harder than stone" are taken verbatim from the text I am referring to.

    Hint 2: It's probably not what you would think.

    Good guess though.

    How about The Stone Troll song sung by sam?

    But harder than stone is the flesh and bone
    Of a troll that sits in the hills alone.
    As well set your boot to the mountain's root,
    For the seat of a troll don't feel it.
    Peel it! Heal it!
    Old Troll laughed, when he heard Tom groan,
    And he knew his toes could feel it.

    I am stumped. I honestly can't think of too many uncles in Tolkien's works. Théoden's probably the most important one, and you could say that Húrin and Huor are Tuor and Túrin's uncles respectively. So my (completely random) guess is Théoden with his big fluffy/wooly beard before he meets Aragorn and company in Two Towers, because I can't think of much else.

    Maybe I am overthinking this.

    I am going out into left field on this probably...

    What if "Uncle" is being used as in to "Cry Uncle" ?
    Then the sage would be for wise and the wool (cotton wool) could be for white as in the White Wizard and the scene could be Gandalf imploring Saruman to essentially surrender- Cry Uncle, admit defeat- and come down from his tower.

    (No, I have not been partaking of any pipeweed to come up with that, as much as it may seem so )

    ...when in doubt...twirl...

    I'm looking for one character.

    you got one right, Sage = wise yes, but the rest nope. Hint: Uncle is someone else and Cotton wool (or simply just cotton) is where a name comes from.

    Would it be old farmer Tom Cotton?

    Nope your on the right track though and close, Hint: Uncle is a very famous character not in the lore but his name is used in our Middle-earth character. Edit: also Cotton is where a name possibly came from, its another word for cotton-wool.

    Seems like this may be unfair to TheArtilleryman:

    Hamfast "Gaffer" Gamgee
    ............................ missed a putt.........................At a Dead & Co. show on a Mexican beach............ another Dead & Co. show at the same beach a year later
    ......................................................
    The real Boraxxe... wearing his "Get off my lawn!" face and his "I smoked my lawn" face, and yes, that's a banana, no, I'm not happy to see you.
    If it's not dangerous, it's not fun!

    LOL you mean “uncle” Sam - sorry I’m not American

    I don’t know why I missed the whole Gamgee thing to be honest - I knew that about the cotton wool but totally missed it! However my next guess would have been the Gaffer too, thinking he was someone’s uncle...

    Yes, was looking for full name, but I'll move it along since it is Sam.

    Uncle = Uncle Sam (remove uncle)

    Sage = Wise

    wool = Gamgee

    Samwise Gamgee.

    your turn!

    For anyone who is interested, Sam Gamgee was named after a Doctor Gamgee that the Tolkien’s knew in JRR’s childhood. He was known for inventing a kind of surgical dressing similar to cotton wool, so the family forevermore used the term “gamgee” to describe the substance. And the name stuck so much that he used it for the character/s we know so well.


    Right, enough trivia in the trivia game

    Next one:


    Ruler, bird warriors
    “...and he lived happily ever after, to the end of his days”

    I believe Thorandor translates as: eagle king.

    Then, perhaps, his descendent, Gwahir the Windlord?

    ROFL! OK let's look at this from the other side. Those who fought the birds, namely the Nazgul, and their ruler would be the Witch King (although he was slain on the battlefield by sword, not in the sky).

    Sorry, also not correct.

    Hint: actual birds ... not involved
