Dís was a Dwarf woman of Durin's Folk.


Dís was the daughter of Thráin II and sister of Frerin and Thorin II Oakenshield, as well as the mother of Fíli and Kíli. She was born in the Lonely Mountain on TA 2760, and was later driven into exile by Smaug in TA 2770.[1]

Portrayal in adaptations

The Hobbit film trilogy

In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Dís is mentioned by Kíli after he has been captured by Wood-elves, and is being kept prisoner in a cell. He talks about her to Tauriel, one of the elves, and explains that a Dwarf-runed talisman he was holding is meant to remind him of the promise he made to his mother to return.

In The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, when Fíli, Kíli, Oin and Bofur arrive in the Lonely Mountain following Smaug's demise, Thorin welcomes Fíli and Kíli as his sister-sons.
