One of the oldest Elves on TolEressëa. (BoLT1; BoLT2)
|Now there happened that night to be present a guest both at their board and at their tale telling, and his name was Gilfanon, and all named him beside Gilfanon a Davrobel, for he came from that region of the isle where stands the Tower of Tavrobel beside the rivers, and about it dwelt the Gnome folk still as one people, naming the places in their own tongue. That region was Gilfanon wont to name the fairest of all the isle, and the Gnome kin its best folk, albeit ere the coming of the folk thither long had he dwelt away from the Noldoli, faring with Ilkorins in Hisilómë and Artanor, and thereto had he become as few Elves did a great friend and companion of the Children of Men of those days. To their legends and their memories he added his own knowledge, for he had been deep-versed in many lores and tongues once in the far days of Kôr, and experience had he beside of many very ancient deeds, being indeed one of the oldest of the fairies and the most aged that now dwelt in the isle, albeit Meril held the title of Lady of the Isle by reason of her blood.|
Gilfanon is the Elf who told Eriol the tale of the Sun and the Moon in Mar Vanwa Tyaliéva.(BoLT1).
