Dwalin, son of Fundin and younger brother of Balin, is one of the least mentioned Dwarves in The Hobbit. He was the first Dwarf to arrive at Bag End. He wore a dark green hood and a golden belt and had a blue beard. Like his brother he plays the viol. Dwalin lent a hood and cloak to Bilbo when they set out on their journey.
Dwalin and his brother Balin, accompanied King Thráin II with a few others on his attempt to reclaim Erebor, but the king wandered off one night at the eves of Mirkwood and his company looked everywhere for him but they did not know that he was captured by the servants of Sauron and taken to the dungeons of Dol Guldur. So the company headed back to the northern Ered Luin, where Thráin had founded a new kingdom and would now be under the rule of Thorin Oakenshield later leader of Thorin and company.
Dwalin supposedly died in IV 91 at the age of 340, very old even for a Dwarf.
