Legolas was a Silvan Elf of the Woodland Realm of Mirkwood. He was actually of Sindarin heritage as he was the only recorded son of King Thranduil. His most important events of his life are surrounded by the War of the Ring during which he was the Elven representative member in the Fellowship of the Ring; his Elven characteristics were a valuable asset because of his superior sight, hearing, lightness of foot, and unrivaled archery.
Legolas is one of Orlando Bloom's most famous characters. Also, it is one of his best portrayals, I think. In the movie, I really love the friendship between Legolas and Gimli as it goes beyond race. And Legolas is probably the neatest character - he never gets dirty fighting all those orcs and traveling far and wide. Also, he never runs out of arrows. Both must be elf magic :)
