Imin (Q, pron. [ˈimin]) was the first Elf who awoke at Cuiviénen and one of the three Elf-fathers. His spouse was Iminyë.

Imin wandered with the two other Fathers Tata and Enel until they found a group of 12 sleeping Elves which he took with him. The Clan was named after him Minyar, the "Firsts".

Thereafter, he refused to take the other Elves that they found waiting for a group. Hence they found none other and his clan remained with only 14 members.

The clan was later named Vanyar.[1]
