|Goldberry as portrayed in the trading card game|
Goldberry, daughter of the River-woman of the Withywindle, was the companion of Tom Bombadil. Fair and golden-haired, she possessed Elf-like beauty, though it is uncertain of what race she is. Her origins, too, are unknown, though Tom Bombadil claimed to have found her in the river. This suggests that she may not be mortal, but rather some sort of spirit or possibly even a lower Maia, though none of these speculations have been confirmed.
