Balfor is a Dwarf created for The Hobbit (2003 video game). He is voiced by Wally Wingert.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Balfor was a Dwarf of the Iron Hills, captured by Goblins. He was set to work on the Dwarf-built contraptions in Goblin-town. Ugslap was his guard.

Bilbo Baggins met him when he was lost in the Misty Mountains. After a deal with Ugslap to free Balfor went sour, Balfor was taken back to another cell. Bilbo dodged the guards and opened the cell, after which Balfor slew every goblin in the room. He then showed Bilbo a way out of Goblin-town. Bilbo, however, wound up in Gollum's cave.[2]
