Tata was awakened by Imin who woke him after he was awoken by Ilúvatar. He awoke a group of Elves that took him as their lord. It is unknown why he wasn't chosen to be his peoples' ambassador to Valinor nor why he didn't become their first king. His fate is unknown but it is presumed that he lived. His folk later became the Noldor. His wife was Tatië.
