Greetings, all!

Today, I will be discussing the Vanyar; the noblest (but smallest) Elf-clan.

===

Race: Elves

House: Vanyar

Appearance: Golden Hair, Grey Eyes. Tall (7 feet average).

Details: The House of Vanyar began in Cuiviénen, when Imin took Iminyë as his wife; and a further fourteen pairs of Elves. This clan, called the Minyar, are the precursors to the Vanyar. Imin and his wife strolled through the forest, and found the others; and together formed the Vanya. After the discovery by Oromë, and the rallying to Aman, the Vanyar sped there with haste; but were seldom seen there. That is much like their realm in Middle-earth, for it is said that no true Vanyar ever set forth to the Mortal Realm; but their descendants through the Noldo and Teleri. According to the works of the Scholar Tolkien, the Vanyar did not favour the sea or crafts; but high-culture. This, they pursued to brilliance.

The Vanyar were favoured by Varda (Elbereth) and Manwë, and the leader of the house dwelt beneath the Halls of the Valar Lord. Those of the house are noted for their wisdom, and loyalty to the Valar; for they follow the rule of their Lords without question, and caused the least problems.
