Bain was a Man of Dale and the second King of the renewed Kingdom of Dale.

BiographyEdit

Born during the late Third Age, Bain was a man of Dale, son to the famed Bard the Bowman. His rule may have been a peaceful and uneventful one. It was during his time as King, after his father's passing, that many party gifts of different varieties were ordered for use at Bilbo's Farewell Birthday Party in TA 3001. Bain presumably died in TA 3007, as that was when his son, Brand, became King. His son would later fight in the War of the Ring at the Battle of Dale, where he was slain.[1]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

The Hobbit film trilogyEdit

Bain is shown to be in his teen years in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and is played by John Bell. There are two additional members of his family, Sigrid and Tilda, who are his sisters.

In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Bain is present with his sisters when his father returns home with Thorin and Company. After hearing the Dwarves recite the tale of how Lord Girion used Black Arrows against Smaug, Bain added that Girion managed to dislodge a scale off the dragon. Later, as his father returned from a tapestry shop, having discovered Thorin's true identity, Bain informs him that the Dwarves had left to raid the armoury.

The next day, as the Dwarves set off for Erebor with the support of Lake-Town, Bard's house again became host to Fili, Kili, Oin and Bofur, as Kili was gravely ill from Morgul poison and no one in town was willing to help. As night fell, they felt the ground shake as the dragon awakened. Bard then reveals that he had one last Black Arrow in his possession. As he and Bain made their way to the dwarvish wind lance atop the Master's mansion, he asked his father why he never told him about the Black Arrow, to which Bard retorts that he didn't need to know. But as the town guard begins searching for Bard, Bain helps his father in hiding the Black Arrow while Bard is captured and imprisoned by the order of the Master of Lake Town.
