dwarves- Balin,



Dwalin, Óin, Glóin, Bifur,

Bofur, Bombur, Kíli, Fíli, Ori, Nori, Dori, andThorin Oakenshield, grandson of Thror and heir to the
throne of the mountain. They have a plot to retake Erebor from Smaug, and want to hire Bilbo as
their burglar (as Gandalf states that hobbits are light on their feet and have chance to be unnoticed
by the dragon). Though first feeling uneasy, Bilbo reluctantly agrees, and the company starts it's
journey from Bilbo's hobbit-hole, Bag End.
As they travel through the Shire, Balin tells Bilbo the story of Thorin, where he, Thorin, and Dwalin
fought Azog at the Battle of Azanulbizar, where Thror, Thorin's grandfather, was slain by Azog, the
pale Orc, whom Thorin duelled and defeated, severing his hand and bringing victory to the dwarf
people, reconquering Moria. However, many of the dwarves had died during the battle, and with
Thorin's father missing, Thorin became the new King of the Dwarves under the Mountain. One night
the company encounters three hungry trolls, Tom, Bert and William, who capture Bilbo and the
dwarves (Gandalf disappears that night), and try to eat them. However, Bilbo manages to play for
time long enough for Gandalf to arrive at dawn, when the sun shines on the trolls, turning them to
stone. Once free, the company finds the trolls' cave, where they get swords- Thorin claims Orcrist,
the Goblin-cleaver, Gandalf finds Glamdring, the Foe-hammer, and Bilbo gets Sting, a small elvish
sword, which glows blue if orcs or goblins are near. Bilbo and the dwarves then meet Radagast the
Brown, a queer wizard living in Mirkwood- he gives Gandalf a Morgul-blade, which he believes
belongs to the Witch-King of Angmar, and he found in the old fortress, Dol Guldur. He also tells
Gandalf that he thinks the Dark Lord Sauron is emerging again. Fleeing orc-riders led by the
vile Yazneg, who they escape with the help of Radagast, the company eventually reaches the hidden
valley of Imladris, also known as Rivendell, the Last Homely House east of the Sea.
There, they achieve a warm welcome from Elrond, the wise elven lord of Rivendell. They are given
food (which they do not enjoy) and shelter, and Elrond also helps them by discovering a riddle on
their old map of Erebor, which reveals the location of the hidden door that leads into the mountain.
As Bilbo and the dwarves unexpectedly leave Rivendell and start their long and dangerous journey
through the Misty Mountains, Gandalf shows the White Council, a council of elven rulers and
wizards, the Morgul blade and Radagasts' suspicion that Sauron is regaining power, but Saruman,
