Salmar

Other Names: Noldorin

Race/Species: Ainur

Type/Kind: Maia

Description:

One of the Maia who accompanied Ulmo to Arda, the maker of the Ulumúri:
Salmar came with [Ulmo] to Arda, he who made the horns of Ulmo that none may ever forget who once has heard them; and Ossë and Uinen also..., and many other spirits beside.

The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 1, Of The Beginning of Days

[Greater] powers than the Eldar alone were present: Noldorin (the Vala 1 Salmar, who entered the world with Ulmo, and loved the Noldoli), and Tulkas himself....

The Shaping of Middle-earth, HoME Vol 4, Ch 2, The Earliest 'Silmarillion': Commentary


Notes
1Tolkien appears to have re-characterized Salmar as a Maia, rather than a Vala, some time after this passage was written.
