One of the sons of MÃ®m the Petty-dwarf. 249, 251-2
One of the sons of MÃ®m the Petty-dwarf.
One of the two sons of MÃ®m.
When MÃ®m and his sons Ibun and KhÃ®m were set upon by TÃºrin's outlaw band, the two brothers fled into the mist. As they ran, KhÃ®m was shot by a wild arrow from the outlaws, but Ibun survived, and shared his father's House of Ransom with TÃºrin and the outlaws. One winter, the two Petty-dwarves went out in search of roots, and were captured by a band of Orcs.
We know that MÃ®m survived his capture by betraying TÃºrin to the Orcs, but Ibun's fate is unclear. Much later, in Nargothrond, MÃ®m told HÃºrin, 'I am the last of my people', so Ibun cannot have survived to that time. Whether he lost his life at the hands of the Orcs, or in some later unrecorded mishap, is not known.
