History

The Quest of Erebor

In Third Age 2941, Ori and his brothers were selected to accompany their King Thorin Oakenshield on the Quest of Erebor, in which they were assisted by the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

He later fought and survived the Battle of Five Armies, was given his share of the treasure by Dáin II Ironfoot, and settled in the mountain of Erebor.

Expedition to Moria

Forty-eight years later[4] Ori traveled with Balin, and Óin (also members of Thorin and Company) and a colony of Dwarves on a disastrous attempt to reclaim their ancient mansions of Khazad-dûm which were already occupied by the Goblins.[5]

At first they colony did well, but less than five years later Balin was killed, the Orc came down again and took the East-gate, and Óin's group he took west to West-gate was destroyed except for a few.

Ori retreated to the Chamber of Mazarbul where Balin's Tomb was laid. He wrote the last pages in the Book of Mazarbul before he and the last few remaining Dwarves perished during a final stand.[3]

During the War of the Ring, the Fellowship of the Ring journeyed through Moria and discovered the book that contained the records of the expedition written by Ori, as recognized by Gimli.[3]
