Of Durin's line, the fiddle-playing Kíli and his brother Fili joined Thorin (their uncle) and Company and died at the Battle of Five Armies (in T.A. 2941) defending their fallen leader's body from desecration by Orcs and their Wargs.


Kíli, like his brother Fíli, was one of the youngest dwarves of Thorin's company. He came from the royal line of Dúrin, being a son of Thórin's sister Dís, and was raised by his uncle. Though older than his inseparable brother he was a bit more reckless and would have been the supposed heir to the throne of his childless uncle. He was brave, agile, quick, had a deep love for music. His name meant Wedge or One who uses a wedge.
