Lord Daith, most celebrated of all the Elven smiths, is the master of Torgovann, and has been for as long as any Elf can recall. Indeed, some whisper that Daith is older even than Ariel and Orion, that he fled Ulthuan with the first colonists; others claim that it was he who forged Aenarion’s Dragon armour. For such to be true, Daith would have to be many thousands of years old — something that would be considered near-impossible in any realm other than timeless Athel Loren. If Daith is truly as old as the rumours tell, he bears little of his great age, for his aspect is that of an Elf in his middle-years. He is blind, and has been so as long as any have known him, but none of this slows his craftsmanship at the forge. He performs his works by touch, and by the way hot metal changes the taste of the air. Nor does his lack of vision still his tongue, which is just as fiery as his forge.[1a]
He forged the sword now wielded by Durthu, Eldest of Ancients,[1c] and dotes upon the Sisters of Twilight in the manner of a proud uncle, indulging Naestra’s obsession with the perfect honing of her time-worn blade as uncomplainingly as he does Arahan’s ardent insistence at carrying a freshly-fashioned spear into each battle.[1d]
Daith marched with the Wood Elf army from Athel Loren to Ulthuan alongside Alarielle and Orion during The End Times to aid Malekith in fighting Tyrion and the Aestyrion, but was sadly killed by a Dark Elf Assassin pretending to be dead at the Battle of Witelan whilst protecting Alarielle from Khaine's Avatar.
