Náli was a Dwarf of Durin's Folk.
Náli was part of an expedition led by Balin to reclaim Moria for the Dwarves of Durin's Folk. He was joined by Flói, Frár, Óin, Ori, and Lóni.
Five years afterward, in TA 2994, members of the colony were attacked by orcs while near Mirrormere and driven through the East-gate into Moria. Náli was killed in a battle while defending the Bridge of Khazad-dûm and the Second Hall alongside Lóni and Frár.
His story is told in the Book of Mazarbul, which was found by Gandalf when he and the Fellowship passed through Moria during their travels.
