365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 280: the Avari

The Avari (Q. ‘Unwilling’) were those Elves who refused the summons of the Valar – either in fear or plain refusal to leave their lands – and did not undertake the Great Journey to Valinor; instead they remained in Middle-earth. Some of the Avari later merged with the Nandor and Sindar Elves and became known as Silvan Elves. The only one mentioned in any records was Eöl the Smith.
