We do not know much about Legolas. But I have made an effort to try and understand him a bit better....
On the surface, Tolkien's trilogy appears very phallocentric. Further study, however, reveals a pattern of symbolic femininity functioning as a reminder that Middle Earth needs a balance of femininity and masculinity to combat evil.
A common assumption made by some religious readers of TLOTR is a spiritual meaning behind Tolkien's writings.
Aragorn, as Isildur's heir, was Chieftain of the Dúnedain and a Ranger of the North. A few Rangers, under Haralbad, make their appearance to help Aragorn through the Paths of the Dead and on to the Pelennor Fields, but apart from this, Tolkien has little to say about them. So what would an ordinary Ranger be like, especially before the days of the War of the Ring?
Just something about the bible and LOTR.
