Fram and his people lived in the far northern part of the Wilderland just below the Grey Mountains (Ered Mithrin) in mid-Third Age. He was most famous for slaying the evil worm Scatha,a Cold-drake, in TA 2000. Afterwards he claimed the dragon's treasure horde which the dwarves believed rightfully belonged to them. Knowing this, he sent back to them a necklace made from the teeth of Scatha along with a message that the dwarves found insulting. This may have started a war between the two peoples that may have been Fram's demise.
He may have also founded the Éothéod capital of Framsburg.
