    Ori had a brother named Oin.
    Ori was a Dwarf of Thorin's company who went successfully with Bilbo to remove the dragon, Smaug, from Erebor (The Lonely Mountain) that had been a home to the Dwarves and which they desired to reclaim.
; Fellowship: "The Bridge of Khazad-dum")

    Ori and Oin went with Balin to reclaim the dwarf kingdom of Moria and make a new colony. They did reclaim it for just under five years and found mithril (truesilver), before being overrun and massacred by Orcs. Oin was killed by the Watcher in the Water. Ori died in the last stand in the Chamber of Mazarbul.
    Gimli recognized Ori's handwriting in the Book of Mazarbul (Records) found by Balin's tomb in the Chamber of Mazarbul. Gimli said, "He could write well and speedily, and often used the Elvish characters."

Ori in Thorin's Company

    Dori, Nori, Ori, and Oin arrived at Bilbo's door at the same time. Due to the Hobbit's unwillingness to admit yet more dwarves, Gloin joined those four to be unintenionally  presented at the same time.
    Ori probably wore a grey hooded cloak, judging by the order of presentation in the book. He may have had either a gold or silver belt or (less likely) a mix of the two metals.
    Some called for ale (likely Dori and Nori), some for porter (likely Ori and Oin) and one for coffee (likely Gloin), going by order and number. But all called for cakes. This group helped finish off the seed-cakes and started on the buttered scones.
