Returning is what the Elves call when once in a great while one Moredhel comes back to them. A returning occurs when a Moredhel's lust for power leaves him, and he returns to his Elven brethren. Tathar, the oldest spellweaver in Elvandar, comments on how he has only seen 7 returnings in his lifetime.

Macros suspected once "The Enemy" was defeated by Pug, Tomas, Macros, Arutha, Ruagh and the Gods themselves, that Returnings would be more frequent.
