The Valarindi (Qenya), were the Children of the Valar in the earliest phases of the mythology, specially in The Book of Lost Tales. In the later versions the concept was abandoned and some of the Valarindi characters survived as Maiar. The Qenya name is attested for last time in The Annals of Aman.[1]
