Who Is Galadriel’s Brother?

I am enjoying The Rings of Power and plan to review Season 1 once I see all of it. From ScreenRant:

Galadriel's brother receives an extended cameo in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power episode 1 - here's everything you need to know about Finrod Felagund. Amazon's long-awaited TV show set during J.R.R. Tolkien's Second Age begins with a flashback to happier times. A young Galadriel lives in the blessed realm of Valinor during the Years of the Trees, making boats and getting bullied by other elf children (ok, not that happy). Getting into a scrap she absolutely would've won had it continued, Galadriel is pulled away by her big brother, Finrod Felagund.

 Played by Will Fletcher, Finrod imparts a slice of sibling wisdom upon his little sister, but when war against the fallen Vala Morgoth breaks out, Finrod goes a-hunting for the villain's top lieutenant, Sauron. As Galadriel tells it, Sauron outmaneuvered Finrod and struck the first blow. His corpse was recovered following the War of Wrath, now bearing deep claw marks and Sauron's personal mark. Morfydd Clark's Galadriel takes her brother's blade and inherits his will, developing a burning desire to vanquish Sauron herself. (Read more.)
