History[edit | edit source]
Imin and Iminyë wandered with the two other Fathers and their spouses, Tata and Tatië, Enel and Enelyë, until they found a group of 12 sleeping Elves which he took with him. That clan was named after him Minyar, the "Firsts". 
In the Cuivienyarna, Imin is portrayed as arrogant, due to his being the first Elf to awake. In the process he is seen to be seeking more Elven followers for his clan, and lastly being left with the fewest.
Thereafter, he refused to take the other Elves that they found, hoping to find some group larger than the ones claimed by the other Fathers. However, despite his expectations they found none other and his clan remained with only 14 members.
