Dwalin, son of Fundin, is the brother of Balin and was one of Thorin Oakenshield’s companions, together with Gandalf and Bilbo Baggins, on the Quest of Erebor which is truthfully told in The Hobbit. Long after Smaug was slain and the Lonely Mountain reclaimed, King Dáin Ironfoot sent him to the Blue Mountains to inquire as to why the Master of Thorin’s Hall had stopped sending tribute to Erebor.

Dwalin remained at Thorin's Hall as its new Master, charged with defending the dwarf-realm from assault by both the Dourhands and the goblins who had begun to sneak back into the Blue Mountains. Strange happenings and unfortunate accidents have strained relations between the Dwarves of Thorin’s Hall and the Elves of Duillond, however, and only the diligent efforts of Lord Dwalin have kept the peace. - [1]
