What about the Orcs' story? Who tells that? And what if, when Saruman was mixing Orcs and men to make his perfect Uruk Hai, he let some good in with the bad?
Legolas, prince of Mirkwood, is forever tainted by the harm done by his older brother. Legolas knows the creature that committed such atrocities wasn't the big brother who helped raised him, but a monster created from shadow, magic, and Sauron's doing. However, the inability of the rest of his kingdom to see him as anything more than a victim who should have died had led to rumors that he is sick and twisted too, that he found pleasure in his infliction. The only place he feels safe and at peace is in Imladris where Lord Elrond is always quick to assure him that he is a miracle. Elrond who is always helping him to heal, even if it's giving voice to the terrors that still plague him. Lord Elrond is the one who saved him from the monster that took his brother after all.
Too late, Legolas realizes he doesn't have to prove himself to Mirkwood, he already has a home with Elrond, but the patient Lord has been waiting for him to realize it on his own. Now he is committed to helping Frodo save their world, and hopefully redeeming himself to be good enough to stand next to the Lord he has come to love as his own.
