Teleri: The name Teleri translates as "Lastcomers", because they were the most reluctant to leave Middle-Earth. The clan was split in two, since the other half still remained in Middle-Earth, and there they were known as Sindar. Their royal bloodline has silver or white hair. Out of the Valar the Teleri were most loyal to Ulmo, the lord of the sea. From him they learned the best ship building, and the superior skill of music. Their ships were made in the shape of swans.
