The Firebeards were one of the seven clans of the Dwarves who lived in Nogrod in the Ered Luin during the First Age. Of the two Dwarf clans of Beleriand, the Firebeards were the worst. They fought the Elves over the treasure of Nargothrond, which in the end the Dwarves were all killed by Ents. They did however, help in the First Battle of Beleriand. In the War of Wrath their great city of Nogrod, was destroyed and sunk into the sea along with much of the Ered Luin. Some Firebeards stayed in the Ered Luin to help rebuild what they could with their kinsman the Broadbeams, from the Southern part of the Ered Luin. While most went to the halls of Khazad-dum in the Misty Mountains.
