Dis was the daughter of Thrain II. She is the only dwarf-woman named in these histories. It was said by Gimli that there are few dwarf-women, probably no more than a third of the whole people. They seldom walk abroad except at great need. They are in voice and appearance, and in garb if they must go on a journey, so like the dwarf-men that the eyes and ears of other peoples cannot tell them apart. This has given rise to the foolish opinion among Men thaat there are no dwarf-women, and that the Dwarves ‘grow out of stone’.
His only comfort was that he couldn't be mistaken for a dwarf, as he had no beard.
