Thorin Oakenshield is our thirteenth and final dwarf from Peter Jackson's The Hobbit!
Unless you've been living in a hole in the ground, then you've likely been catching the awesome looks at the rather diverse Company of Dwarves from Peter Jackson's much-anticipated THE HOBBIT.
Last of the bunch but certainly not least is Richard Armitage as the dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield, depicted in the image here wielding the Elven blade 'Orcrist'.
As a young Dwarf prince, Thorin witnessed the destruction and terror wrought when a great fire-breathing Dragon attacked the Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. After slaughtering many of Thorinís kin, the great serpent, Smaug, entered The Lonely Mountain and took possession of its vast store of gold and jewels. No-one came to the aid of the surviving Dwarves, and thus, a once proud and noble race was forced into exile. Through long years of hardship, Thorin grew to be a strong and fearless fighter and revered leader. In his heart a fierce desire grew; a desire to reclaim his homeland and destroy the beast that had brought such misery upon his people. So when fate offers him an unusual ally, he seizes the chance for revenge.
