Fili

FiliPlayed by **ROB KAZINSKY**

Fíli was one of the twelve companions of Thorin and Bilbo on the Quest of Erebor. He and his brother Kíli were the sons of Dís, Thorin’s sister.

He had a blue cloak, a yellow beard and a long nose, the longest of all the Dwarves on the Quest. The two brothers were described as being young in Dwarf terms, younger than the rest by some fifty years. They also had the best eyesight and so were often sent scouting or searching. The brothers are consistently described as having been cheerful, the only two to have come out of the barrels at Lake-Town “more or less smiling.” After the battle with the spiders he is forced to cut off most of his beard due to it being covered in webbing.

Although Fíli is described as being the youngest in Chapter 8 of The Hobbit, in Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings his birth year is given as T.A. 2859, whereas Kíli’s is 2864. Both brothers fell at the Battle of Five Armies, defending their uncle Thorin, and were buried with honor.
