Uinen (Q, pron. [ˈuɪnen]) was Ossë's wife. She was a Maia spirit known as "The Lady of the Sea".
Her hair lay spread throughout all waters, and her love was given to the creatures that live in salt streams and also the weeds that grow there. The mariners of Númenor would cry to her for help, because she was capable of calming Ossë, and they lived under her protection while their respect for the Valar endured.
The Teleri had much love for Uinen, as she and Ossë had befriended them at the river Sirion. Uinen wept for the Teleri mariners after the kinslaying at Alqualondë.
