Bofur was a descendant(related) of the Dwarves of Khazad-dûm, but was not of Durin’s Folk. He and his family hailed from the Blue Mountains. As such, they felt less strongly about the quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug, more interested in the adventure than a home they’d never seen.
9 years after the quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain, Bofur, along with his cousin, Bifur, and brother, Bombur went on many battles with King Dain II Ironfoot. On one battle, Bifur and Bofur, himself, were killed.
Tika began work as a barmaid for her adopted father Otik in 346 AC, at the age of fourteen. Otik owned & ran the Inn of the Last Home. She had always had a fascination with magic and admired Raistlin Majere for his ability to use magic. Though she admired Raistlin, she adored Caramon Majere and always flirted with him.
Óin was one of the five Dwarves in the fourth group to arrive at Bag End. He wore a brown hood.
Óin and Glóin were noted for their ability to start fires, although both failed on the night that the company met the trolls. In their frustration they began to quarrel and eventually to fight, which was the incident that prompted the company to head for the fire seen far off on a hill.
Óin fought in and survived the Battle of Five Armies. He was given his share of the treasure by Dáin Ironfoot, and made his home in Erebor.
I had to include some villains!
Sivak Draconians are the only “true” draconians who are capable of flight; they are second to Aurak Draconians in power (among the true draconians), and were created from the eggs of Silver Dragons. They generally attack with huge two-handed swords, but can also use their claws and/or armored tails. In addition to flight, sivaks have a unique (but limited) ability to shape-shift

Bilbo proclaimed Dori to be “really a decent fellow” because thrice Dori assisted Bilbo when the hobbit might otherwise have been killed: First, Dori carried Bilbo in the tunnels of the Misty Mountains during the escape from the goblins, but unfortunately dropped him; the other Dwarves later blamed him for losing their burglar. Second, during the escape from the Wargs, Dori climbed down from a tree, which allowed Bilbo to scramble up Dori and into the tree. Lastly, Bilbo grabbed Dori’s legs as they were carried off by an eagle, saving them from a fire lit by Goblins.
Although the group first encounters Fizban as an old storyteller, he represents himself to be a clumsy, absent-minded, but powerful wizard. He claims to have a very powerful spell, but can’t remember the name – “Tire-wall… Liar-small… Criers-ball? Oh well, it’ll come to me…”.
It was later discovered that Fizban was an avatar of the god Paladine.
Nori was one of Durin’s Folk and likely dwelt in the northern Blue Mountains with Thorin after the latter had settled there. He was one of the thirteen Dwarves of Thorin’s company who journeyed to Erebor to challenge the dragon Smaug. After the death of Smaug, Nori lived with his share of the treasure at the Lonely Mountain.
Nori was one of the five Dwarves in the fourth group to arrive at Bag End. He wore a purple hood. During the evening when Thorin called for music, Nori (along with Dori and Ori) played the flute.
