The Ainur and the Valar
The Ainur were created by Ilúvatar. They were the mightiest created by him. Their purpose would be to use their power to create Middle Earth, according to his designs. Not all of the Ainur fulfilled this duty. Those who are loyal and saw the creation of Middle Earth to completion are known as the Valar. Melkor was the only Ainur who was involved in the history of Middle Earth who was not christened a Vala, because his actions were always and forever according to his designs and not those of Ilúvatar.
