A Firebeard dwarf by Warren Mahy

Portrayal in adaptations

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]
