The '''[[Avari]]''', the "Unwilling", are those who refused the summons of Oromë. Most of the Avari came from the largest tribe, the Teleri. {{fact}} A few of the Noldor remained as well, but were no longer called by that tribal name. Together with the Nandor and the Sindar, they are called the '''[[Moriquendi]]''' ("Elves of Darkness") in recognition of the fact that they did not see the light of the [[Two Trees]]. The largest part of this group were Teleri, since that was the most numerous people from the beginning, and they suffered more than one sundering on their voyage to the western shore. <ref>{{S|3}}</ref> While all of the Eldar departed Middle-earth by the early [[Fourth Age]], it appears that the Avari mostly stayed or died out: there is no account of their passage Westward. {{fact}}
