The maiden whom the Valar chose from among the Maiar to guide the vessel of the Sun was named Arien … and she was chosen because she had not feared the heats of Laurelin, and was unhurt by them, being from the beginning a spirit of fire, whom Melkor had not deceived nor drawn to his service. Too bright were the eyes of Arien for even the Eldar to look on, and leaving Valinor she forsook the form and raiment which like the Valar she had worn there, and she was as a naked flame, terrible in the fullness of her splendour.
The Silmarillion fancast: Rinko Kikuchi as Arien
a small flame.
Etymology: from Latin flammula
