The Void; formerly Angband and Utumno
time period

In the beginning, Melkor (Q. "He Who Arises in Might") was the greatest of the Valar. He shared power with Manwe, but he never enjoyed the favor that Eru accorded his brother. Manwe, however, was closer to Eru's thought, for Melkor could not work within the scheme prescribed by the One. When the Valar made the Great Music, Melkor created discord. Melkor desires to be omnipotent and create according to his own feelings, and not within the bounds of Eru's vision. Like Aule, Melkor loves to make things and he revels in the adoration he receives for his conceptions. But he went further than the Smith and, after entering Ea, he openly rebelled. Abandoning his pledge to Eru, Melkor became a fallen Vala and his name is not spoken by the Powers. He is now known as Morgoth, the "Black Enemy."


A strong built titanic, elf-like man (12'-40'-5000') with lidless, serpent-like eyes, percing cold and burning like flame at the same time, once fair and beautiful but later dark, light- or ice-bright but also stone- or rock-like dark and grey skin ,scarred and with burned hands and face, long and fair hair like clouds or ice but also like fire or smoke, with gems woven in, mutilated and his feet cut-off.

(According to ICE or MERP's Ardor series), the mother was Ardana, a fallen Noldo who conspired with Morgoth to bring down the sun and the moon in hopes to open up the door of night and release Morgoth from his prison. Part of the ritual was to sacrifice a being who bore Valarin blood within their veins. Morelen was to be sacrificed while Moran was thought to be stillborn--he was actually alive and grew up to be a powerful being who eventually slew his evil mother with simplicity. He was considered a pure being and none of Ardana's powers could work on him!
