The Maiar are a fictional race from J. R. R. Tolkien's universe, Middle-earth. Many fantasy stories and worlds call their main sapient humanoid species races rather than species. ...

The Maiar are those spirits which descended to Arda to help the Valar to shape the World. Singular is Maia. They were supposed to be numerous, yet not many were named. In the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, Arda is the world in which all of the events occur, including the continents of Middle-earth and Aman. ... In J. R. R. Tolkiens fantasy universe, Middle-earth, the Valar are the Powers of Arda who live on the Western continent of Aman. ...


Their chiefs are Eönwë, banner-bearer and herald of Manwë, and Ilmarë, the handmaid of Varda. In Tolkiens fictional world, Eönwë was the banner-bearer and the herald of Manwë, and Chief of the Maiar along with Ilmarë. Eönwë was referred to as the greatest of arms in Arda, meaning that he was the best with weapons, though not necessarily the most powerful. ... A fictional character from J. R. R.

Each of the Maiar was associated with one or more particular Vala, and were of similar stock, though less powerful. For example, Ossë and Uinen, as spirits of the sea, belonged to Ulmo, while Curumo, who came to be known in Middle-earth as Saruman, belonged to Aulë the Smith. In the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, Ossë (from the Valarin OÅ¡oÅ¡ai, OÅ¡Å¡ai) was a Maia associated with Ulmo. ... Uinen was Ossës wife in the Middle-earth mythos of J. R. R. Tolkien. ... Ulmo is a fictional character from J.

Others included Sauron (originally also of Aulë's people), Aiwendil, who was known in Middle-Earth as Radagast the Brown and belonged to Yavanna, and Olórin, later (and better) known as Gandalf, who belonged to Manwë and Varda, but his ways took him often to the house of Nienna, and from her he learned pity and patience, which perhaps aided him in his later struggles to unite the Free peoples of Middle-Earth against the power of Sauron. The main part of this article relates to a version of Middle-earths history that is considered canon by many Tolkien fans (see: Middle-earth canon); it may contradict parts of The Silmarillion or other texts. ...

Alatar and Pallando, known as the Blue Wizards, travelled to the east, and never returned to the west. Their fate is unknown. The Balrogs were, like Sauron, Maiar corrupted by Melkor.
