Ori was a Dwarf that appeared in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Ori usually wore a grey-hooded cloak with a silver belt when traveling abroad. He also plays the flute. He is also, along with his brothers Dori and Nori, a remote kinsman of Thorin.
Ori lived in Thorin's home in the Northern Blue Mountains (Ered Luin) for many years. In the year TA 2941, Ori became a member of Thorin and Company and travelled with the company on the quest for the Lonely Mountain and the death of Smaug. Finally, he and the other dwarves of Thorin and Company fought in the Battle of the Five Armies, and he survived it.
The Final DaysEdit
Ori was one of the several Dwarves that accompanied Balin to Moria in TA 2989 to begin a colony there.Though it see's initial success, the colony is destroyed in TA 2994 when the Balrog and Orcs begin to press back from the initial fight. After Balin died, Ori and others lived just long enough to bury him properly in his stone tomb before dying himself in the last stand in Mazarbul. Ori recalls his last moments in The Book of Mazarbul which Gandalf reads from when the Fellowship passes by Balin's Tomb in the Fellowship of the Ring. His body is left clutching the scarred, bloodied, and shredded book; a warrior-scribe to the last breath
Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
In Peter Jackson's film trilogy, Ori is played by Adam Brown. Unlike the other members of Thorin's company, Ori is a scribe rather than a warrior and begins the quest armed with only a slingshot and knife. During the party's escape from Goblin Town, Dwalin lends Ori his warhammer which the younger Dwarf uses with surprising effectiveness, at one point desperately swinging it backwards into a warg's head. Dwalin is seen carrying it again by the end of the film. The studio released the following statement concerning Ori:
"Younger brother to Nori and Dori, Ori is a talented artist, and can often be found drawing and writing in his journal. It is Ori who chronicles much of the journey through The Wild to the shores of the Long Lake and the slopes of The Lonely Mountain. Polite and well-bred, he is used to being bossed around by his older brother Dori and is usually biddable, although occasionally he can surprise his fellow companions with his courage and determination. Ori is said to be the youngest in the company."
Despite being portrayed as the youngest of the company in Jackson's adaptation this is not necessarily the case in the books as Kíli and Fíli are described as the youngest by around fifty years.
