The Lost Valar
Concept and much research by Irmo-(Valar)
Additional research done by Eonwe-(Valar), Ilmare-(Valar)-ex,
Introduction and linking of the efforts by Varda-(Valar)
The lost Valar are the Valar whom Tolkien wrote
works, but dropped by the time he wrote the Silmarillion. Some were
actual Valar from outside Arda who sang Arda into existence. Some were
children of these Valar who came
into existence on the created Arda.
After dropping the idea of the Valar's having
children and inventing the concept of Maiar, these characters had to be
changed. Some, such as Eonwë, became Maiar. Even some non-children
disappeared completely from the storyline, such as Nornorë whose actions were split between other characters.
