Elemmakil (Q. Star Sword) was one of the Noldor and was the captain of the Dark Guard stationed at the Gate of Wood.
When Tuor and Voronwë appeared, Elemmakil was amazed that his friend Voronwë would bring a mortal man with him. He announced that he should, by law, slay him. Voronwë and Tuor answered that they came at the command of Ulmo. Elemmakil then guided the two through the Seven Gates of the Orfalch Echor, until he delivered them unto Ecthelion of the Fountain, then serving as the Warden of the Great Gate.
Elemmakil is Quenya for "Star Sword", from the elements Elen ("star") + Macil ("sword, forged sword blade, cutting sword").
