Merry, Honourable Elf of Mirkwood Warden
Calendal was born in 2843 in Mirkwood. He was named Gillear(Star Song) by his
father, but was later given the name Calendal(Green Foot) by his friends because

in the siege of the Lonely Mountain but was refused. Instead he visited the
human villages he knew to the west of Mirkwood. There, he join in with a band of
Northmen in fighting small pockets of Goblins and Wargs that were retreating
from the Battle of Five Armies.

were to ever move back above ground, Mirkwood had to be cleared of the Shadow.
He also believes that in order for that to happen, all the inhabitants of
Wilderland would have to join together as they had at the Battle of Five Armies.
After the crushing defeat of the Goblins and Wargs, now is the time to press the
