Nindéwen (slender maiden) was born not too long after her parent’s marriage, and was their eldest child out of four. As the name Erécáno might imply, he is a younger version of his father Erémo, with the same steel hued hair and eyes and the same temperament.
Aicaneren did not wed and stayed in Aman with his father and mother. His name describes his eyes that were grey as steel but glinted amongst any kind of lighting.
Morwinyon was noted for his dark eyes, for when after the waning of Laurelin and into the waxing of Telperion, his eyes would glint as if in starlight when the Elves first awoke in Cuiviénen. He wedded Nandellë (player of the harp) of the Noldor and had two daughters named Culaureä (golden red daylight) and Morilaureä (dark shadow light).
