DORI (Mark Hadlow). A distant relative of Thorin Oakenshield, Dori is the eldest amongst his brothers Ori and Nori. Eternally pessimistic, with a natural tendency to expect the worst, Dori is nonetheless quite prepared to risk life and limb in order to get the job done.
NORI (Jed Brophy). Perhaps the most elusive member of The Company of Thorin Oakenshield, Nori is often in trouble with the dwarvish authorities. Nobody ever quite knows what the quick-witted and wily Nori is up to, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably illegal.
ORI (Adam Brown). Younger brother to Nori and Dori, Ori is a talented artist, and can often be found drawing and writing in his journal. Polite and well-bred, he is used to being bossed around by his older brother Dori and is usually biddable, although occasionally his can surprise his fellow companions with his courage and determination.
