Physical Description
GenderMale

Durin VI (Third Age 1731 – 1980, lived 249 years) was a King of Durin's folk and ruled the great Dwarven city of Khazad-dûm. During the end of his reign the Dwarves, while mining for mithril, awoke a Balrog that had hidden itself deep beneath the city. The monster began to wreck havoc on Khazad-dûm and slew Durin. Since the surviving Dwarves were unsure what type of monster they faced, the Balrog was simply called "Durin's Bane". Durin's son Náin I was slain shortly thereafter, leaving his grandson Thráin I to lead Durin's folk away from their ancestral home.

Like all Durins after Durin I he was given the name of the first Father of the Dwarves because he greatly resembled him in both appearance and manner. Indeed it was believed among the Dwarves that he was the reincarnation of Durin I, though whether this is possible is unclear.
