Lofar was one of the four Dwarves that stayed at Bag End after Bilbo Baggins' birthday party.[1]

Other versions

In the early writings of the chapter "A Long-expected Party", Lofar was given some dialogue and a bit more development. However, Tolkien later changed his mind, and did not disclose his name in the book nor gave him any dialogue.[source?]

Etymology

Lofarr is a dwarf from the Dvergatal. It can mean either "Stooper" or "Praiser".[2]
