Frár was a dwarf of Durin's Folk who accompanied Balin in an attempt to reclaim Moria in the late Third Age.


Frár, Flói, Óin, Ori, Lóni, and Náli were those who, with Balin, entered the abandoned dwarf-kingdom of Khazad-dûm in the year TA 2989.

On November 10, 2994, however, Balin was killed by an orc archer as he looked into Kheled-zâram. His companions rescued his body and retreated through the East-gate, but many more orcs came up through Azanulbizar, eventually breaking the gate. The Bridge of Khazad-dûm was captured next, then the Second Hall, where Frár, Lóni, and Náli were slain.[1]

Nothing else is known of Frár's life.
