Hereof, who created the elves?
The now sixty Elves dwell by the rivers, and theyinvent poetry and music in Middle-earth (the continent). Journeyingfurther, they come across eighteen pairs of Elves watchingthe stars, whom Tata claims as his. These are tall and dark-haired,the fathers of most of the Noldor.
Secondly, who created orcs and elves? legend166 Noob. It's impossible to say who'invented' the idea of elves, orcs, dwarves, etc.Mainly, they come from Norse mythology. However, it's probably safeto say that Tolkien made them popular for use in modern day novels,games and such.
Furthermore, how did elves originate?
The word elf is found throughout the Germaniclanguages and seems originally to have meant 'white being'.Reconstructing the early concept of an elf depends largelyon texts, written by Christians, in Old and Middle English,medieval German, and Old Norse.
Who invented orcs?
So that takes us a fair distance away from the questionof whether J.R.R. Tolkien invented the Orcs. In onesense we can clearly say that they evolved under his hand from aborrowed idea that he sometimes acknowledged or almostacknowledged.
