Ori was a Dwarf of the House of Durin, and brother to Nori and Dori, a distant kinsman to Thorin Oakenshield. He wore a grey hood, played the flute, and wrote both well and quickly in large, bold hand using Tengwar.
The Quest of Erebor
Expedition to Moria
Forty eight years later 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.
At first they colony did well, but less than five years later Balin was killed, Orc reinforcements came south[source?] 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.It is unconfirmed that Ori was taken prisoner by the orcs of Moria he died in Ta 3018 after telling Gandalf about Durins Axe.
Óri is a dwarf from the Norse mythology and the name means "Furious".
