Fram and his people lived in the far northern part of the Wilderland just below the Grey Mountains in mid-Third Age. He was most famous for slaying the evil worm Scatha in TA 2000. Afterwards he claimed the Dragon's treasure horde which the Dwarves believed rightfully belonged to them. Knowing this, he sent back to them a necklace made from the teeth of Scatha along with a message that the Dwarves found insulting. His fate is unspecified.
Portrayal in adaptations
In The Lord of the Rings Online Fram appear in a series of flashbacks narrating the history of Éothéod. When Scatha attacked Framsburg, Frumgar lost the use of his sword-arm, after which Fram swore revenge and hunted Scatha alone for two years. Frumgar died shortly after Fram returned with Scatha's treasure, while Fram himself was not killed by Dwarves, but by the servants of the Enemy who made it look like Dwarves were involved to sow dissent in the North. Fram left three sons, Gifica, Gundamári and Gisilhári. None of them were at age at the time of Fram's death and the two eldest died in battles against Orcs.
