Who is he?
The soft spoken, shy and sort of standoffish youngest dwarf of the company, Ori is the one you'll most remember for bringing a slingshot to an orc fight. He's much more of a dwarf who follows "the pen is mightier than the sword" and might be the only one of that race who actually lives by that theme. You see, he's an accomplished writer and illustrator who's often found with his head stuck in books and journals rather than battles and adventures. He documented their entire trip to Erebor and dies years later with the same journal in his hands as well since yes, he is the same skeleton Gandalf picks up the book from in The Fellowship of the Ring (one of three dwarves to be referenced in that movie). "Drums in the deep.. they are coming"
But hey, LET'S GET BACK TO MORE CHEERFUL TIMES FOR ORI THAT REVOLVE AROUND WHEN HE WAS ACTUALLY ALIVE! We know that he doesn't like green food, he loves to draw and sing and he can snipe the eye of a warg rider 50 miles away with a goddamn pebble on a slingshot, and that's awesome if you ask me.
What we can expect in The Desolation of Smaug
I think we'll see a bit more of Ori coming out of his shell and pulling out a heroic deed in the showdown with Smaug to be honest. I think they're setting up his character for a nice "coming out of his shell" moment that either happens now or in The Battle of the Five Armies, but either way it'll eventually happen. As for now expect a lot more slingshot action, some awkward dialogue and most likely an "accidental kill" from Ori in the next installment of the trilogy.
