PELENDUR: Swingy bit of clock loses hesitation, gains direction and note, and moves about a bit to reveal him.
A Tolkien exclaims, elvishly, and creates him from a muddle?

I feel like "Tolkien exclaims Elvishly" is probably AI, but can't make anything from a muddle.

Exactly where I got to. Could "exclaims, elvishly" mean two exclamations, like oh+ai =????

I figure N should start with a sound alike for (ba)nana, possibly with a nar involved, but a quick poke of the character lists got me nowhere.

AI is correct. What was one of the names Tolkien was called? Then muddle it.

NAR is correct. What sound might a weedkiller or pesticide or something end in?

Well, most pesticides end in - EN or - IEN, but the closest I can get from that is Arien/Aerin...

Not that ending.

Whom do you call if you have a rat infestation? In the UK, admittedly.

No, but 5 letters are right.

I've been circling around "Narkil" for days (my only other option was Narbegon), so thank you Urwen for asking it!

Narsil is a sword, so isn't a 'he'. Nargil appears in Beleg's whetting spell, and might be a mortal - or a knife - or a dwarf - or another name for Angrist. Another Nargil is a pass into Mordor. Uhm... NANA-KIL > NARMA-CIL, Kings of Gondor?
