Ibun was the son of Mîm and brother of Khîm, the last of the Petty-dwarves.[1]

[edit] History

Ibun lived with his family at Amon Rûdh. They were seen by the Gaurwaith as they snuck past them carrying heavy sacks. Mîm was captured, and the two brothers fled into the mist. As they ran, Khîm was shot by a wild arrow from the outlaws, but Ibun survived, and shared his father's House of Ransom with Túrin and the outlaws.[1]

One winter, the two Petty-dwarves went out in search of roots, and were captured by a band of Orcs. To save his life Mîm betrayed Túrin to the Orcs, but Ibun's fate is unclear.[2]

Much later, in Nargothrond, Mîm told Húrin, "I am the last of my people",[3] meaning that he outlived both his sons; Ibun either lost his life at the hands of the Orcs, or in some later unrecorded mishap.
