Description

Gimli is son of Glóin, in the line of Durin. He lives through III 2879 - IV 120, which means he is about 140 years old when we first meet him and he eventually dies aged almost 245 years old, much later than the current era of Lotro. By that time he has earned the title "Elf-friend" which indeed was something of an achievement for a dwarf.

This brave dwarf is son of the great Glóin, one of the companions who travelled with Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins to defeat the dragon Smaug and reclaim the Lonely Mountain. Descended from the line of Durin, Gimli is a stout-hearted warrior of great skill and determination. Hailing originally from Ered Luin, the Blue Mountains west of Eriador, Gimli now calls the Lonely Mountain home, and lately has travelled to Rivendell. At the Council of Elrond, Gimli was chosen to represent the dwarves as part of the Company of the Ring, and to accompany the Hobbit Frodo Baggins on his quest to destroy the One Ring in Mordor - a great honour indeed.
A dwarf in the presence of elves, even in these latter days of the Third Age, is cause for much speculation and even outright wonder, for it is no secret that the races of elves and dwarves each have long held bitter resentment against one another. However, Gimli's steadfast loyalty in the face of unimaginable perils has allowed him to overcome the ancient bitterness and return to Imladris at his father's side. — lorebook
