Borin (TA 2450 - TA 2711) was a dwarf of Durin's Line, the second son of King Náin II and brother of Dain I. After his brother and younger nephew Frór were slain, he departed the Grey Mountains with his elder nephew Thrór to the Lonely Mountain and lived there until his death. He was the ancestor of both Balin and Gimli Elf-friend of the Company of the Ring.
