Manwë bid Mandos to speak, and he replied that the Children shall come in this age, and the [[Firstborn]] will walk under the stars. [[Varda]] then created other stars to help to light Middle Earth for the coming of the Elves.  Using silver dews from [[Telperion]], she created many new stars, including [[Wilwarin]], [[Telemendil]], and others. As a challenge to Melkor, high in the north, she hung the seven stars that make up the [[Sickle of the Valar]].  After Varda's long effort, the Elves, the Firstborn Children of Ilúvatar awoke in the starlight by the shores of [[Cuiviénen]], the Water of Awakening.<ref name="Captivity"/>

While [[Oromë]] conducted his hunting trips on his great steed [[Nahar]], he heard the newly-born Elves singing.  He met them and spent time among them, and yet perceived the influence of Melkor among them, as they were afraid of him.  Oromë reported these findings to the [[Elder King]], who once again called a gathering of all the Valar, even the far-off [[Ulmo]].  He then proclaimed that they "should take up again the mastery of Arda at whatever cost, and deliver the Quendi from the shadow of Melkor".
