look up any word, like blumpkin:
In JRR Tolkien's Silmarillion, the Vanyar or High-Elves are a clan of elves who remain in Valinor when the Noldor return to Middle-Earth. They are described as the most beautiful of the Elves and the closest to the Valar.
The Vanyar return to Middle Earth only once, when they join the Valar in the battle which finally defeats Morgoth.
