A Firebeard dwarf by Warren Mahy

The Firebeards were one of the seven houses of the Dwarves. They were originally paired with the Broadbeams. The ancestor of the Firebeards was among the oldest (together with the ancestors of the Broadbeams and Longbeards) of the Seven Ancestors of the Dwarves.[1]

The clan's name in the Neo-Khuzdûl tongue would have been Urs-tarâg.

2002-5: The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Game:

The House corresponding to the Firebeards is called Úri's Folk, said to being "instantly recognizable by the fiery hue of their beards". After the destruction of Nogrod, some of Úri's Folk went to join the Longbeards at Khazad-dûm, while others delved new halls in the southern Ered Luin.[2]
