Embroiderer, amateur minstrel, student of healing
a very young adult
In a great hall beneath the Lonely Mountain dwells the Longbeard Bóurr, son of Bíld, son of Vald — a lame and ancient veteran of Azanulbizar — with his wife, Hróda, daughter of Hár. On the wealth of Hróda's renowned embroidery workshop they live prosperously, with a large family of three sons and one daughter, though most are grown and no longer live at home; the elder three are Blovurr, the silversmith, Maurr, the soldier, and Rofda, the gemcarver.
The youngest, it was for many years known, was Blída, the unexpected daughter of Bóurr's old age and one of the very first Dwarf-daughters born under Erebor Reclaimed. Not much seen in public in Erebor — jealously guarded and cherished by her family, which is not unusual for a Dwarf-maiden — she was nevertheless regarded as a great beauty, gentle and refined, with skill not only at her chief craft, goldwork embroidery, but also at her hobby of harp and song. Of Blída, Bóurr's daughter, this was said: a heart of gold, harp-strings of silver, and a voice of mithril — pure, light, and strong.
In the past year, though, many curious changes have occured at the Hall of Bóurr.
After a year's absence, Bóurr's youngest returned, apparently from Eriador, wearing the beard and styles of a bachelor son. He not only uses the name “Bíld” out-of-the-mountain (where, in Bree-land, Men may have heard a queer little Dwarf sweetly singing, or, in Rivendell, Elves may have heard of a curious young student of healing theory), but in Erebor, too, among Dwarves. These days Bóurr is too ill to leave home, but if asked both he and Hróda speak of their youngest proudly, and as a son.
Now, after a summer spent with his family in Erebor, Bíld son of Bóurr is on the west side of the Misty Mountains again.
