Dori was one of the twelve companions of Thorin and Bilbo on the Quest of Erebor. He was the brother of Nori and Ori. It fell to Dori to carry Bilbo in the tunnels of the Misty Mountains, but Dori dropped Bilbo and the other dwarves blamed him for "losing their burglar." Later, during the escape from the Wargs when they all climbed trees, Dori climbed back down to help Bilbo, who could not get up on his own. When the Eagles carried them off, Bilbo grabbed hold of Dori's legs as they went. In The Hobbit, Dori is described as "a decent fellow, despite his grumbling," while Thorin described him as being the strongest member of the company.

The two brothers were described as being young in Dwarf terms, younger than the rest by some fifty years. They also had the best eyesight and so were often sent scouting or searching. The brothers are consistently described as having been cheerful, and the only two to have come out of the barrels at Lake-town "more or less smiling."

Although Fíli is described as being the youngest in Chapter 8 of The Hobbit, in Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings his birthyear is given as T.A. 2859, whereas Kíli's is 2864. Both brothers fell at the Battle of Five Armies, defending their uncle Thorin, and were buried with honour.
