I think Thorin would be the choice with me too... But i think the next runner ups would be Dain (from the Iron Mountains) and Gimli.

My favourite dwarf is Grumpy.

:withstupid: Yes, and after Grumpy should be Dopey followed by Durin the Deathless; though if we are limited to the Dwarves of The Hobbit, then I guess Balin would be my choice, for I think he was Bilbo's favorite.

Telchar, whom for the longest time I thought was a Gnome of Eressea rather than a Dwarrow of Nogrod. Forger of Angrist, Narsil and (this last was news to me, but Wikipedia insists it's so) the Dragon Helm of Dor-lomin; how much would Middle-earth be different without him?

I cried buckets as well when he died. But he brought his pain upon himself. He was just so obsessed.
I suppose, well it is hard. Balin and then Gimli. For all Gimli was included in the book I still did not learn enough about the real h im, the depth of him to satisfy me.
I was not truly fond of the dwarves if I am to be honest. While I admired them I did not identify with them

To understand a Dwarf, you'd have to be a Dwarf yourself, as even more than Elves they usually keep to themselves and never leave their mountain realms or underground halls, safe to trade some of their goods.

The Free Peoples of Middle-earth knew only a few words in Dwarven language ("Khâzad" being one of them) and hardly knew anything of the Dwarves' origins and beliefs (which is why there are a lot of tales about their afterlife, like that they would turn to stone, etc).

It seems that the information about the Dwarves in the Appendices, may all have been revealed by Gimli himself to the writer of it (I believe that section was part of Red Book of the Westmark), for instance it was Gimli who partly revealed the mystery of Dwarven women - he named Dís as being Thorin's sister.

Lucky though, that Tolkien's dwarves are benevolent, unlike the original Dwarves of Nidavellir from Nordic mythology, who are sly and cunning and whose crafts tend to cause their buyers quite some harm.
