Salmar

Salmar is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth legendarium. He appears in "The Silmarillion".

In the index of "The Silmarillion" Salmar is described as a Maia, an angelic being. It is unknown whether that entry was written by Tolkien or his son Christopher. While there is no other text describing Salmar as one of the Maiar his status as a spirit who accompanied the Vala Ulmo to Valinor, but was not listed among the Valar would make that the logical conclusion.

In earlier conceptions of the legendarium (see: "The History of Middle-earth") Salmar is often called by the title Noldorin, and sometimes Lirillo, and was envisioned as a Vala in the service of Aulë.
