Bofur was one of Dwarf companions of King Thorin Oakenshield during the Quest of Erebor, and was the brother of Bomburs and a cousin of Bifurs. He later fought and survived the Battle of Five Armies, and made his dwelling in Erebor. Bofur was a descendent of Dwarves of Khazad-dûm, but was not of Durin's line, which means he was of either the house of the Firebeards or the Broadbeams. Both these Houses populations were almost totally in Khazad-dûm up until the awakening of Durin's Bane. It is possible that Bofur fought in the Battle of Dale during the War of the Ring. Since he was alive at the time and lived in Erebor when it happened.
