|Fate||Attending the Council of Elrond during the War of the Ring.|
Glóin was an intelligent dwarf of Dúrin's Folk. He is the son of Gróin, the brother of Óin, the husband of Milli, and father of Gimli Lockbearer. He is most famous as one of Thórin's companions on the quest to reclaim Erebor. After reclaiming the mountain and receving a portion of the treasure, Glóin and his family would soon be involved in fighting the enemies of Mordor during the War of the Ring. Sometime after his son Gimli left and ventured to Mordor with the Fellowship of the Ring, Glóin became a good ally in protecting Rivendell where he established a camp just north in the Misty Mountains and to keep Goblins from attacking the Elven city.
