Dori's parentage is unknown although he was a member of the [[House of Durin]] and a remote kinsman of Thorin.<ref name="Durin"/>  His birth year is also unknown.  However, in [[Bilbo Baggins]]' account of the quest to Erebor he stated that the brothers [[Fíli]] and [[Kíli]] were the youngest of the thirteen "by some fifty years"<ref name="Hill">{{H|Hill}}</ref> and that when Thorin was missing, [[Balin]] was "the eldest left".<ref>{{H|Barrels}}</ref>  Since Fíli was born in {{TA|2859}} and Balin was born in {{TA|2763|n}},<ref name="Durin"/> this would put Dori's birth between 2809 and {{TA|2763|n}}, and he would have been between 132 and 178 years old during the quest to Erebor.  Thorin stated that Dori was the strongest of the Dwarves in the company.<ref>{{H|Flies}}</ref>  Dori (and [[Nori]]) shared Bilbo's opinion that meals should be plentiful and frequent.<ref>{{H|Mutton}}</ref>

Bilbo proclaimed Dori to be "really a decent fellow"<ref name="Pan">{{H|Pan}}</ref> because thrice Dori assisted Bilbo when the hobbit might otherwise have been killed:  First, Dori carried Bilbo in the tunnels of the [[Misty Mountains]] during the escape from the goblins, but unfortunately dropped him;<ref name="Hill"/> the other Dwarves later blamed him for losing their burglar.  Second, during the escape from the [[Wargs]], Dori climbed down from a tree, which allowed Bilbo to scramble up Dori and into the tree.  Lastly, Bilbo grabbed Dori's legs as they were carried off by an eagle, saving them from a fire lit by Goblins.<ref name="Pan"/>

When [[Gandalf]] was telling the story of the company's adventures to [[Beorn]], Dori and Thorin were the first two Dwarves to show up.<ref>{{H|Queer}}</ref> Thorin also notes that Dori is the strongest of their company.

:Dori is voiced by [[John Stephenson]]. Apart from Thorin, he is one of only three of the other Dwarves who speaks with any regularity ([[Balin]] and [[Bombur]] being the others). As in the book, he sometimes carries [[Bilbo Baggins|Bilbo]] on his back. He is the one to discover the Hobbit is missing during their escape from [[Goblin-town]]. Bilbo also holds onto his leg (much to his chagrin) while the [[Eagles]] are flying the Company to safety.

:Dori is a non-playable character, who is the official "High Hoard Seeker" of [[Erebor]]. He is captured along with the gems he was bringing to the Dwarves of Othrikar by the Dourhands. The player must rescue him in Vol I, Book III, Chapter 4 "Freeing Dori". He also makes an appearance during the Dwarven Introduction quest line, at Thorin's Gate. Much later, after the events of [[Sauron]]'s Fall, he is found in various places in Erebor, and leads an expedition into the [[Grey Mountains|Ered Mithrin]] to save his brother [[Nori]].
