Melkor was not seen for a while, but then appeared at [[Formenos]] to Fëanor, tempting him with words of friendship, and an offer of vengeance against the Valar whom Fëanor perceived had wronged him.  Fëanor wavered, but Melkor pressed his advantage too much.  He touched a chord about the Silmarils, and Fëanor, seeing his designs and lust for the jewels, cursed and rejected him.  Melkor departed in anger, and went south past the mountain of [[Hyarmentir]], to the shadowed valley of [[Avathar]] where there dwelt [[Ungoliant]], a mysterious dark spirit in spider-form once his servant, but who had disowned him after his failure.  After some time he convinced her to dismiss her fears with the offer of rich rewards, and she wove a cloak of shadow about them both.

Then Melkor and Ungoliant attacked while there was festival in [[Valmar]].  Melkor pierced the [[Two Trees]] with his lance, and Ungoliant drank their sap.  Then she drank dry the [[Wells of Varda]], and the two fled north to [[Formenos]], leaving the land once more in darkness and confusion.  At Formenos Melkor slew [[Finwë]] and ravished the treasury of Fëanor, including the [[Silmarils]].  Then he passed over the icy [[Helcaraxë]], entering once more into [[Middle-earth]].  He was soon back in [[Angband]].  He had struck swiftly and surely.  But Fëanor cursed him, naming him [[Morgoth]], and by that name he was known ever after to the Eldar.
