Elemmakil was a Noldorin Elf, the captain of those who guarded the outer entranceway to Gondolin. The secret path to that great city led through a cavern in the wall of a Dry River to the Gate of Wood, the first of the Seven Gates of Gondolin. It was this gate that Elemmakil and his men guarded, and it was here that he encountered Tuor and Voronwë, journeying to Gondolin at the command of Ulmo. Elemmakil was their guide through the Seven Gates that guarded the Orfalch Echor, until he gave them into the keeping of his own captain, the Warden of the Great Gate, Ecthelion of the Fountain.
