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".

In the Cuivienyarna, Imin is portrayed as arrogant, grace to him being the first Elf to awake. In the process he is seen to be seeking more Elven followers for his clan, and lastly being left with the fewest.

Thereafter, he refused to take the other Elves that they found, hoping to find some group largers than the ones claimed by the other Fathers. However, despite his expectations they found none other and his clan remained with only 14 members.

The clan was later named Vanyar.[2]
