Introduction and linking of the efforts by Varda-(Valar)
The lost Valar are the Valar whom Tolkien wrote
about in earlier 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.
