  • Evil Albino: Lungorthin, from The Lays of Beleriand, is a Balrog with white flames, as opposed to red like the other Balrogs.

I removed this because I don't think it's correct. Looking in the indices of Lays of Beleriand, Shaping of Middle-earth, and Lost Road, I found only two references to Lungorthin. Both are in the "Lay of the Children of Hurin" and say nothing about his coloration. Going from his name, which seems to mean "Blue Death," I'd expect him to be blue instead of white.

Can anyone confirm where it's said Lungorthin is a white Balrog?
