Celebrimbor is one of the most influencial characters from the Second Age. We don't have much information on him personally but of his deeds and lineage.

Celebrimbor was a Ñoldorin prince and the last in the line of the House of Fëanor, who lived in Middle-earth. From SA 1350, the Gwaith-i-Mírdain under Celebrimbor, the last of the House of Fëanor left in Middle-earth ruled Eregion, previously under Galadriel and Celeborn rule, until Eregion itself was attacked and destroyed in the War of the Elves and Sauron in the year SA 1697.

A great friendship with the Dwarves of Moria developed while he lived in Eregion due to its proximity and the delight on their carfts, and skills and secrets were shared between Moria and Eregion for many years via the high road.[1]

He was the only grandson of Feanor and inherited his grandfather's creativity and artistic talent. Alongside Sauron and the other jewelsmith of Eregion, Celebrimbor created the 16 rings and the Three Rings of Power: Vilya, Narya and Nenya by himself. He took the secret localization of the three to his grave.

As with most of others in the Silmarillion fandom, despite being mentioned as the creator of the doors of Moria in the Lord of the Rings canon and its appendices, most of Celebrimbor characterization is fanon extrapolated from supplementary material released by the Tolkien Estate after the author's death, and changes with the currents of the fandom.
