The Dwarves of Erebor are the group of twelve dwarves who set out to liberate Erebor, the lonely mountain from the clutches of Smaug. Their leader is Thorin Oakenshield who over the course of the films turns inwards before then turning back outwards to face off against Azog, the lead antagonist in the film. The Dwarves are assisted by the great wizard Gandalf and the Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins who acts as the groups thief. The purpose of the thief is to steal the Arkenstone, a magnificent stone amongst the old in Erebor.
