Bombur: Comic relief of the Hobbit Dwarves
Bombur's main point in the Hobbit storyline is to be an obstacle and comic relief for the company of Dwarfs. He is the "Fat one" and has a lot of pratfalls and and comedy directed at his size, voracious appetite and the lengths the company has to go to to bring him along.
He is one of the dwarfs that also becomes a particularly close friend of Bilbo.
Bombur is the cousin of Bifur and brother of Bofur.
In the upcoming Hobbit movie, the part of Bombur is played by actor Stephen Hunter
Thorin Oakenshield: Leader of the Company
Thorin is the leader of the company of Dwarves and certainly one of the "action stars" of the series. He is a tough, smart and generally fair leader who is brave and a stout and hearty fighter.
The name "Oakenshield" is not a last name, but a nickname. Throin had once fought off orcs in the Mines of Moria using a brach of oak as both a shield and a weapon, and was given that name to honor his past deeds.
Thorin is quite tall for a dwarf. He is also one of the Dwarven Kings in Exile and wants to get revenge on the dragon Smaug for the destruction imparted by the Dragon in Thorin's youth. (As well as reclaiming all the lost Dwarven Gold)
Thorin is related, or at least distantly related, to most of the Dwarves in the company.
Thorin will be played by actor Richard Armitage in the Hobbit trilogy of movies.

Ori: Younger Brother and Scholar
Ori is the youngest of three Dwarven brothers. Much of his participation in the story has to do with his older brothers looking out and worrying after him.
If you remember the company reading a book in the Lord of the Rings about the ill fated Dwarven mission to retake the mines of Moria, that book will be written...years later... by Ori.

Nori: The Dwarf of Mystery
Nori is a dwarf with a bit of a dark past. Part of his reason, besides accompanying his two brothers on the quest is to avoid some sort of legal trouble in his home dwarven area. Nori is the middle brother and while everyone is watching out for yournger brother Ori, Nori seems to be the one who helps himself into spots of trouble.

Dori: The Strongest Dwarf
Dori is the oldest of three brothers (Ori and Nori being his younger siblings). He is noted as being one of the strongest Dwarves and is often given the task of carrying the weak, "thief" Biblo from place to place. Due to this, Dori is one of the Dwarves who has a lot of interaction with Bilbo Baggins.

Balin: the Wise old Dwarf
Balin is the second oldest of the company, being younger than only Thorin Oakenshield. Balin is often the voice of reason and calm amongst the Dwarves. Balins calm decisions and smart choices make him a great sounding board and useful in helping and educating Biblo Baggins.
Because of his wisdom and calm, Balin becomes a particular friend and confidante of Bilbo Baggins.

Dwalin: The Loyal
Dwalin is one of the tallest and fiercest dwarves. He is tough, tough minded and fiercely loyal to his cousin Thorin. He is incredibly loyal and supportive to those he knows and trusts, but he also is very hesitant to like, trust or deal with non-dwarves, being specifically suspicious of elves.
Bofur: Optimistic Fun Loving Dwarf
Bofur is not a particularly brave dwarf...but brave enough. He is on the quest looking for a chance to earn a lot of gold, and because he heard there will be free beer.
Bofur is incredibly optimistic and good natured for a Dwarf, and always fun to be around. He is often around his brother Bombur and cousin Bifur.
The role of Bofur is played by Irish actor James Nesbitt
Kili and Fili
Kili and Fili: The Young and Active Dwarves
Kili and Fili are brothers and the the youngest Dwarves, being more than 50 years younger than most of the others. They are the nephews of the leader, Thorin Oakenshield, they have been trained by him in use of weapons and are quite skillful, therefore they are often given a lot of the action and fighting.

Gloin: Father of Gimli
Fans of the Lord of the Rings movie and books are certain to know (and probably love) the character of Gimli the Dwarf. Gimli is the son of Gloin and in many ways the characters are similar. Gloin is gruff and a bit abrasive, but a great fighter and a loyal dwarf.
