Maglor was a poet, a skilled harper and the greatest singer of all the Elves save Daeron of Doriath (The Silmarillion, QS, Ch. 24 - Of the Voyage of Earendil and the War of Wrath). After the Kinslaying at Alqualonde, he composed the Noldolante, or Fall of the Noldor.
Maglor was the most temperate of Feanor's seven sons; the only one who tried to relinquish his claim to the Silmarils.
Of his outward appearance, nothing is known, but his hair was probably dark.

Finch, 12.30.02, 01.01.03
