The First of the Numenorians I remember when the first of your people started showing up. The Cult of Pleasure used your ancestors as sex slaves with Elven males. You were created in some ways by the tricks and menipulation of Chaos.

The first Numenorians would begin to rise within the region of France during the decades that followed the arrival of the first Elven colonists led by Malekith Aestarion. During this time colonizing and building in western France these earlu Elven warriors and builders were isolated from Ulthuan while they built and fought leading to much interminging between the male Elves and native Franks creating the foundation of the Numenorians. Due to the growing influence of the Cult of Pleasure on Ulthuan the High Elves were engaging in an increasingly dangerous amount of questionable moral decisions and the slave trade was just one of them. The Elves under the leadership of Morathi would begin bringing a large number of Frankish women to the mineral rich island of Atlantis where they became slaves for the Elven male garrison of miners there creating more Numenorians. As the women created this underclass of half Elves this increasingly numerous next generations would be used to mine the very valuable Numeron mineral that was abundant on the island. This mineral would be so intertwined in these early slaves that they began to be called the Numenorians which in Elvish meant those of the Night Stone. As the years went by though the intermingling of the Elves and these slaves begin to create a large subsect of the population that became ever longer in life. These children were at first murdered or taken to Ulthuan to live as Elves, but soon as their numbers increased too much they found it impossible to stop, and it wasn't long after this began to happen that the violence and rebelling began. The Elves in France would attempt to uplift these half Elves now known as Numenorians into the dominent human client state in France in order to support their expansion in France but found the Numenorians unable to hold the line, and under the order of the current Phoenix King Caledor Elwe II. they were withdrawn from France and sent in their entirety to the island of Atlantis to join the second group of Numenorians.
“We are no longer your slaves. We are one step from taking this island, and once we do you will understand our true worth.”
— Elros Amendil
It wasn't until the rise of Elros Amendil that the Numenorians began to get the idea of taking the island over completely. Elros Amendil the son of Nilaeth Windrunner of whom was a prominent member of the Windrunner Family used his mothers influence to finance the arming of his forces and using this power he rose quickly in the ranks of the Atlantians of whom were already becoming too much for the overstretched Elves to handle. After many years of fighting it was Elros and his forces that gained control of the capital city of the Kingdom of Atlantis and it was this act that finally forced the Atmer Empire to direct their attention to the Numenorian issue with Pheonix King Tethlis Finarfin rallying a large army and sailing to Atlantis. At the Battle of Ninandamos the forces of Elros Amendil would be secretly joined by the noble titans Woglinde and Ares of whom gathered to them hundreds of their personal forces and tipped the battle leading to the death of Tethlis Finarfin and after Tethlis's son was taken prisoner during the battle he would be forced to sign a peace treaty with the Numenorians of whom were also given their independence. Having been given their freedom through blood Elros would officially break from the Atmer Empire when he founded the Empire of Numeron and proclaimed that they would take over the mantle of power left behind by the Atmer Empire.
Rise of the Pantheon
“This is our chance to make a real difference Ares. We can change the world.”
It would be Poseidan that would join with Ares and Woglinde in assisting the early Numenorians in their rise, and during this time Poseidan came to befriend Elros Amendil the first Emperor of Numeron and this led to him becoming instrumental in the creation of the Atlantian Pantheon which he believed would save the Numenorian people and make them the true power of the Earth. It would be Indus would join the forces of Ares following the death of Mindus and imprisonment of Erbag and would use his abilities to fashion the shield that would protect the Numenorian Pantheon from the affects of coruption and other illnesses making them all but immortal.
