A dwarf of Durin’s Folk, and distantly related to Thorin Oakenshield.

In The Hobbit Ori was a member of Thorin and Company on the Quest of Erebor in TA 2941. Little is said of him there except that he wore a grey hood, and played the flute.

Ori fought in the Battle of Five Armies and later, in TA 2989 he left Erebor to go to help re-establish the ancient Dwarven kingdom of Moria. He was slain there during the last defence of the Dwarves in the Chamber of Mazarbul.
