Brædfætmann was a Dwarf of Erebor. He was in charge of all kinds of mining work of the Lonely Mountain. After Dain became the King of Dwarves, he returned to Erebor and did his old duty.
He crafted a Mithril Shockwave-axe when he was 8 years old, which the Dwarves was shocked. He was appointed as the Head of Erebor's Crafting and Mining department after that. At that time, the Dwarven fortress and walls are still made of wood, he led a group of 300 strong men and rebuilt them all with solid rock and silver. Also, he expanded the crafting and mining hall inside the mountain.
During the War of the Ring, when the Dwarves and Men were falling back to the fortress, some Easterlings attacked the Left Mine. Brædfætmann tried to protect the best mine of Erebor, but was overwhelmed and slayed. His corpse was found and mourned later. The destroyed Left Mine was rebuilt and renamed as Brædfætmann's Mine, in remembrance of him.
