      In response to the question, "Does anyone know the SIndarin or
      Quenya word for 'avenger'?", Helge K. Fauskanger wrote:

      Actually, two words for 'avenger' appear in the Qenya Lexicon:

      _pairemo_, _paimar_ 'The Avenger'

      These are listed under the root PAYA 'requite, punish, take
      vengeance on; conquer, subdue'.
