365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 229: Ori

Adam Brown as Ori 
Ori, of the House of Durin, was one of the twelve companions of Thorin Oakenshield on the Quest of Erebor (TA 2941). Following the expedition, Ori lived peacefully in the Lonely Mountain until 2989, when he joined Balin’s expedition into Moria.

When the Dwarves woke the Balrog and came under attack from it as well as Orcs, it was Ori who recorded in the Book of Mazarbul the final days of the colony. One of the last to die, he fell defending the Chamber of Mazarbul and the Tomb of Balin (d. TA 2994).
