The most numerous of Endor's creatures, the Potili (Q. "Manyfooted" Sgl."Potil") comprised all the lenktalaitër (many-segmented creatures, "Arthropods") — insects, arachnids, crustaceans, etc. — everything from ants to great spiders. These beasts were invertebrates with exoskeletons and multi-segmented bodies. They occupied every ecological niche.
Because of their variety, the Potili commanded the attention of Oromë (and to a lesser degree), Ulmo, and Manwë. They were considered one of the lowest orders of the Kelvar, however, and it was the Maiar who oversaw their progress and well-being.
