Bláin was a dwarf of Ered Luin and had been one of many that joined Balin's colony to reclaim the ancient city of Moria. Serving as an honory soldier and guard to Balin, Bláin failed to protect his King from being killed and swore to avenge his death. However, knowing that Moria was already lost and no chance to ever reclaim it, Bláin sought to retreat, but was shot to death by a Goblin archer.
