Enel (Q, pron. [ˈenel]) was the third of the three Elf-fathers who awoke at Cuiviénen. His spouse was Enelyë.

He walked along with the other Father, Imin and Tata and took the third group of 24 Elves. They found other groups but because Imin refused to choose again, Enel also took the fifth group of 48 Elves.

He was the head of the Clan named after him Nelyar, the "Thirds" who became known as Teleri.[1]
