King of Druin's Line late in the Third Age, he was best known for renewing Rûrîk's ties with the Womaw of northeastern Endor and defeating the Great Attack in T.A, 3017-19. Bân VII then led the way into the Fourth Age, forging friendships with the Men of the East after the fall of Sauron and Khamul. He ruled wisely and with great fervor, inspiring his dwindling folk to make peace with their neighbors.


The Spelling of some Names was altered to move away from pseudo-old Norse Names, which represent the Language of northern Rhovanion and would have been unknown to the eastern Dwarves.

Original forms:
