Balin: After all, what are we? Merchants, miners, tinkerers, toy-makers. Hardly the stuff of legend.
Thorin: There are a few warriors amongst us.
Balin: Old warriors.
Thorin: I would take each and every one of these Dwarves over an army from the Iron Hills. For when I called upon them, they answered. Loyalty. Honor. A willing heart... I can ask no more than that. Thorin and Balin
Thorin's Company was a group of 13 dwarves, one hobbit and a wizard whose goal was to reclaim the Kingdom of Erebor from Smaug. They achieved their goal although Thorin, Fili and Kili were killed in the Battle of Five Armies. The rest of the company either lived in peace until the War of the Ring or were killed in Balin's Expedition to Moria.
