Many of the fictional characters in J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium are Dwarves, a short stocky race inhabiting the world of Arda (the Earth in an imagined mythological past). Dwarves lived in the continent Middle-earth, mostly under its mountains.
The names of many of Tolkien's Dwarves are derived from Norse mythology. Tolkien did not use diacritical marks for any names in The Hobbit, but in The Lord of the Rings he accentuated a number of names, including some which had appeared in The Hobbit. Thus, for example, Fili became Fíli, and Thrain became Thráin.
