Gimli (Middle-earth)

Gimli is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien's universe of Middle-earth.

Gimli is a Dwarf of Durin's Folk chosen to accompany Frodo on his quest to destroy the Ring, in The Lord of the Rings. Initially suspicious of Elves, he became an ardent admirer of Galadriel and a close friend of Legolas. Some say that he traveled with Legolas into the West, the first Dwarf to visit the Undying Lands.

Gimli's father was Glóin.
