Synopsis

Aulë, who was the great smith of the Valar, wished to create life whom he could teach his craft to. His impatience waiting for the Elves to awake got the best of him and Aulë secretly decided to create the Seven Fathers of the Dwarves. Ilúvatar, also known as Eru (the One), soon learned of Aulë's actions and Aulë was forced to destroy his creations. However Ilúvatar now did not want to see the Dwarves destroyed, so he granted them life of their own. They had to however rest until the Awakening of the Elves who Eru had chosen to be the Firstborn of the Children of Ilúvatar.

When Yavanna, the spouse of Aulë, learned of her husband's deeds, she feared the Dwarves, or even the Elves and Men to harm her plants and trees which she loved. She went to Manwë to seek protection. Manwë had a vision of the Song of Creation in which Eru told him not to fear as spirits would also awake to protect what Yavanna held dear.
