Physical Description
GenderFemale
Adanel was a Wise-woman from the House of Marach, a daughter of Malach and Meldis, and older sister of Magor (Adanel had many other brothers and sisters as well, and they also might have been younger than she).

She was the wife of Belemir and mother of five children, of whom the last was Beren, who was the grandfather of his great namesake, Beren Erchamion.

The Wise of the People of Marach were the only Men to preserve the tale of their original sin, when, soon after their awakening, some Men chose to worship Melkor instead of Eru. Adanel told this tale to her niece, Andreth of the House of Bëor.
