A strong friendship formed between the eagle, Landroval, and Glorfindel. The warrior brought rabbits to the aerie as gifts, and they talked often. When Landroval was fully grown, the two often flew together over Gondolin.
Today, with a fresh snowfall waiting in the heights, Glorfindel summoned his friend. While the eagle flew towards him, he attached his foot boards and secured his hand sticks. Landroval landed on the crenellation of the nearby wall.
Bowing deeply, Glorfindel smiled, saying “Looks like powder on the eastern slopes.” Mounting the shoulders of his friend, the two took off to explore the back bowls.
