    (From Wikipedia):

    Celegorm (Tyel/Tyelko) is the third of Feanor's seven sons and Maedhros and Maka's younger brother. He, along with the rest of his family, swore a soul-binding oath to regain the Silmarils (his father's magical jewels of light), and forsook the realm of Valinor to wage a number of wars in Beleriand (Middle-Earth). Celegorm is described as "the fair." It is not clear whether 'fair' in this case refers to pale coloring or to beauty. The color of his hair is a point of contention among readers. However, the fact that he was known as 'the Cruel', along with his servants leaving twin elflings (Eluréd and Elurín) to starve makes it doubtful that he had a strong sense of justice.

    His name Celegorm (in Sindarin form; originally Tyelkormo in Quenya) meant "Hasty-riser", describing his quick temper, as well as his habit of leaping up when angered. His father-name in Quenya was Turkafinwë, or "Strong[-willed] Finwë". ("Finwë" was a common name-element among his House, being the name of his grandfather Finwë, High King of the Noldor.)

    Celegorm was a great huntsman, and was a friend of the Vala Oromë. From Oromë he learned great skill of birds and beasts, and could understand a number of their languages. He had brought with him from Valinor the great hound Huan, a gift from Oromë.

    In The Silmarillion, Celegorm was bound by an oath to recover his father's Silmarils, which had been stolen by the Dark Lord Morgoth. His oath took him and his brothers to Middle-earth during the First Age where they established realms in exile, waged war against the armies of Morgoth, fought their own Elvish kind, and eventually brought ruin upon themselves and their followers.

    Celegorm had taken part in the Kinslaying in Alqualondë, and he had ambushed the Orc armies in Dagor-nuin-Giliath as they marched north from the havens of Círdan to aid the forces already being decimated by the Noldor. Celegorm, along with all his brothers, followed Maedhros to East Beleriand after the council of Mithrim, where upon the abdication of Maedhros Fingolfin became the High King of all Noldor. Celegorm, his brother Curufin, and nephew Celebrimbor settled in Himlad, and fortified the Pass of Aglon. Orcs tried to breach the pass, but were beaten back by the combined forces of Dorthonion and Himring.

    In Dagor Bragollach, the great battle at the end of the book, the pass was breached despite fierce resistance. Celegorm, Curufin and Celebrimbor, with the survivors of Himlad, marched west towards Minas Tirith. They rescued their friend Orodreth from Sauron's assault at Tol Sirion. Although Minas Tirith ultimately fell to the forces of Angband, Orodreth, Celegorm, Curufin and Celebrimbor escaped the battle with a small following.

    Celegorm and Curufin lived in Nargothrond, aiding Finrod in all events and needs of the kingdom, and won a large following because of their activities. The oath and the curse of the Valar poisoned their minds after Beren sought Finrod's help in recovering a Silmaril. They opposed Finrod's mission, and their words caused the people to turn against their cousin.

    They captured Lúthien Tinúviel, daughter of King Thingol of Doriath. Celegorm wished to marry her, thus forcing a bond of kinship with Thingol. Celegorm sent messages declaring his intentions to Thingol. Huan, however, broke with his master and helped Lúthien escape. Celegorm and Curufin were driven from Nargothrond after their deeds were revealed. They vowed to destroy Thingol after he had scornfully denied to give up the Silmaril. Their deeds are also responsible for Nargothrond and Doriath not joining the Union of Maedhros.

    ~Chronicles of Tirion~

    In a last effort to get Doriath to join the Union of Maedhros, and subsequently help him defeat Morgoth and regain his father's Silmarils much easier, Maedhros marched both Celegorm and Curufin back some years later to force them to apologize for what had transpired between the Sindar and the Noldor respectively. The both of them returned, begrudgingly, however Thingol was no longer king, and Luthien no longer alive, the Kingdom being ruled by her son, Dior the Beautiful.

    Dior accepted their apology, but refused to hand over the Silmaril, fearing that the Sons of Feanor would kill each other to obtain sole custody of it, and bring about an even greater darkness and an even greater war than that which they had already faced. Maedhros was patient, assuming that Dior would come around eventually, as the Silmaril did belong to him and his brothers. Celegorm and Curufin, however, were not nearly so convinced.

    Finding Dior extremely attractive, far more so than even his mother, he told his brother that he'd "work on him", and made a habit of visiting Doriath more often. Dior, at first, was wary of this strange Noldorin Lord who suddenly wanted his time and attention, but eventually found him a decent sort and even returned some of his affections.

    Celegorm's affections were genuine, surprising even himself, and the two of them became closer, though he lost sight of the original prize. Curufin accused his brother of sympathizing with Dior and the Sindar and abandoning their cause, taking his army to go and regain the Silmaril his way, Celegorm and his "working on him" be damned. Celegorm attempted to stop him, having invested much more in his relationship with Dior than he'd originally anticipated: having fallen in love, but Curufin slew him in his steps and assaulted Doriath anyway. Both Curufin and Dior were murdered in the battle.

    However, due to a prophecy pertaining to the return of one of the Silmarils and the eventual ruin of Middle-Earth, Celegorm, Curufin, and Caranthir were sent back in the sixth age, modern era.
