Gimli (Noldo)

"a complete consistency [...] is not to be looked for, and could only be achieved, if at all, at heavy and needless cost." — Christopher Tolkien
This article's canonicity is disputed.

Gimli was a Gnome who was liberated from the thraldom of Tevildo along with Beren. His captivity had left him blind but with keen hearing. He appears only in the Tale of Tinúviel.[1]
