Lóni was a Dwarf of unknown lineage.


Lóni entered Moria with Balin, Frár, Óin, Ori, Flói, and Náli in their attempt to form a colony there in TA 2989. Lóni was killed in a battle while defending the Bridge of Khazad-dûm and the Second Hall alongside Náli and Frár. His body fell thousands of feet off the bridge of Khazad-dum, but his axe was recovered.[citation needed]

His story is told in the Book of Mazarbul, which was found by Gandalf when he and the Fellowship passed through Moria during their travels.[1]
