- ― Náin son of Grór, The Lord of the Rings, Appendix A
At the Battle of Azanulbizar, Náin lead reinforcements to the Dimrill Dale where he fought his way all the way up to the steps of the East-gate of Moria, where he dueled with Azog. But Náin was half blind with rage and weary of battle, so he swung with all his might at the the Orc, but Azog who was not weary of battle for he hadn't fought, darted aside and kicked Náin's leg so that he missed and shattered his mattock on the steps. Náin stumbled and Azog tried to hew his neck, but the Dwarf's mail withstood the edge, but the blow was so powerful that Náin's neck was broken and he fell. After the battle his body was burned, along with the rest of the dead on wooden pyres.
After his death the lines of Grór's two elder brothers failed, and Náin's son Dáin II Ironfoot became King.
