Balin son of Fundin, Lord of Moria by citrus-slice Balin son of Fundin, Lord of Moria by citrus-slice
Also available at my: Etsy Shop! :happybounce:

The third dwarf in the series! Interestingly enough, in the books Balin is actually younger than Thorin. Maybe Thorin just dyes his beard in the movie version to appear younger and more virile? Perhaps he uses Touch of Gray?

ALSO, in case you didn't remember Balin is the dwarf whose tomb the Fellowship finds in Moria in Lord of the Rings.

Other Dwarves:
Thorin
Gloin
Dwalin
Bifur
Bofur

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew this Balin was the one from that tomb!!!!!!!!
I've always had my theories, but never found any proof in the books or movies.
(Only book I read was the hobbit)

Well, I definitely recommend reading the Lord of the Rings' then, they're really good (although a lot more dense than the Hobbit). :D
