How Sauron joined the Tourney
Before the creation of Ea, Sauron was one of the countless lesser Ainur spirits created by Eru Iluvatar, known as the Maia. At this time he was known as Mairon the Admirable, and partook in the Ainulindale, or Music of the Ainur. However, unlike many other spirits, Mairon did not align himself with Melkor upon the introduction of his discord themes, and thus, did not initially fall under his sway.
