The Valar

The Huntsman of the Valar, the brother of Nessa and one of the eight Aratar. In ancient times, he rode often in the forests of Middle-earth, and it was he who first discovered the Eldar at Cuiviénen.


Notes

1

...or 'One who blasts loudly on a horn', in reference to his fabled hunting horn, the Valaróma. This is one of many cases where a simple Elvish concept translates very awkwardly into English.
