In Tolkien's fictional world, Enw was the the banner-bearer and the herald of Manw, and Chief of the Maiar along with Ilmar.

When the appeal of Erendil reached the shores of Aman, it was Enw who first greeted him. When Manw decided to heed the appeal, Enw was sent to Middle-Earth to fight the War of Wrath, leading the Vanyar.

When Morgoth the Black Foe was defeated, Enw took the two remaining Silmarils and held them for safekeeping. But at last the two remaining Sons of Feanor took them and fled, yet Enw did not let them be slain.
