Moriquendi ~ n
The dark Elves
Lord of the Rings
In J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, the Moriquendi (the Elves of Darkness, singular Moriquendi) are, in essence, the Elves that did not join the Great Journey over the sea and behold the light of the Two Trees in Valinor. They lingered on the shores of Middle-earth or, indeed, never passed the Blue Mountains on the east of Beleriand or the Misty Mountains further to the east. Those Moriquendi who originally started on the journey but for some reason did not finish it are known as the ƚmanyar, "Those not of Aman". What became of them later is almost a mystery. It is possible that some of them may have secretly dwelt in the mountains of Ered Luin and remained there up until the beginning of the Fourth Age
