Elrond is a elf male character from Lord of the Rings. Elrond who appears in both trilogies is the Lord of the Elf and comes from the realm of Rivendell. Elrond was there when Lord Sauron lost the One Ring. In the Lord of the Rings, he was situated at Rivendell for most of the time. Elrond hosts the Fellowship of the Ring but does not join the group.
Elrond is the father of the Elfen princess Arwen and eventually sanctions her marriage to the human king, Aragorn. Although he is not too pleased to start with. Arwen is an Immortal who will outlive her human mortal husband. He only approved it if Aragorn was a King as he felt they were the only ones worthy to be husband material. In addition to Arwen, he has two other children Elrohir and Elladan but they do not feature as prominant as Arwen.
Elrond was with Isildur, Aragorn's ancestor when the hand containing the ring was chopped off and the Ring then began its journey. Elrond tried to persuade Isildur to destroy the ring there and then but Isildur didn't.
Elrond appears in both trilogies but he is only seen in action in the Hobbit films where he dons his golden armour to help Gandalf and Galadriel to face off against the Necromancer.
