Bifur was a companion to Bilbo Baggins and Thorin Oakenshield on the Quest of Erebor. He arrived at Bag End in the company of his cousins Bofur and Bombur. He fought and survived the Battle of Five Armies. Bifur was a descendent of Dwarves of Khazad-dûm, but was not of Durin's line, which means that he was of either the house of the Firebeards or Broadbeams. Which most of the population of these two Houses dwelt for nearly all of the Second Age, and for nearly two thousand years of the Third Age in Khazad-dûm.
The name means 'Trembling' or 'Beaver'

In Tolkien's unfinished rewrite of The Hobbit (published in the History of The Hobbit) Bifur, along with Bofur and Bombur, is said to be Thorin's attendant.
