Angelo Montanini's illustration of Dori.

Dori is one of three dwarf brothers (the other two are Nori and Ori) who befriended Bilbo and travel with him in search of Smaug's treasure.

It fell to Dori to carry Bilbo in the tunnels of the Misty Mountains during the escape from the goblins, but Dori dropped Bilbo and the other dwarves blamed him for "losing their burglar."

During the escape from the Wargs, Dori climbed down from the tree he was on and allowed Bilbo to scramble up on to the tree. Bilbo later grabbed Dori's legs as he was carried by an eagle to its eyrie, saving them from the fire that goblins had set on the trees.

Dori, fought in and survived the Battle of Five Armies. He may have also fought in the Battle of Dale during the War of the Ring.

Dori was of of Durin's line and a remote relation of Thorin Oakenshield's.
