Sure, it may well have been a decision based on curiosity rather than the clear intention to get a hold on the ring of power to archieve some kind of goal.
As a side note: I wonder how exactly the...

Well, there's the obvious “I want those loud and annoying intruders out of my home“. As I discussed before this motive seems plausible at first but it raises many questions regarding it's behaviour...

You're right. Being called by the ring, or noticing it's presence, doesn't necessarily mean that the subject acts like a marionette.




Motives for what?

Yes, thatīs plausible so far. Either that, or the Balrog simply didn't care for the dwarves and their activities, which is less plausible. But what irks me (and Iīm repeating myself) is that we still...

Maybe the Balrog wanted to be left alone. But I find this situation to be confusing anyway. IIRC the Book of Marzabul explicitly tells us that the Dwarves of Balins colony found mithril. Since the...

Well, this situation would be even more ridiculous when you look at it from Gandalfs perspective. Gandalf sees this winged creature and immediately decides to block itīs way by standing infront of...

My problem with this answer is that I find it kind of strange that Balin's Colony could live and labour in Moria for about 5 years without getting attacked by the Balrog. Im pretty sure their digging...
