Bân was the fourth King of Rûrîk and the fifth Lord of Druin's House. Son of Brôn the Clumsy (or Brôn the Echo), Bân ruled the Dwarves of Druin's Line for 56 years (SA 1055), in peace and with wisdom. His greatest accomplishment was the establishment of regular trading with the Men of the East.


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

Original forms:

  • Bain - Bân
  • Bróin - Brôn
  • Drúin - Druin
