Orophin was a Silvan Marchwarden from Lothlórien, and the brother of Haldir and Rúmil.

BiographyEdit

FOTR - Lorien Brothers

Orophin, with his brothers Haldir and Rumil

Orophin guarded the border of the country to the west, at the time of the War of the Ring. He stood guard along with other elves, including his brothers Haldir and Rumil.[1]

Like Rúmil, Orophin knew very little Westron (the Common Tongue) and so associated very little with the Fellowship. When Haldir saw Gollum rustling through the trees near where the hobbits stayed for the night, Orophin left his brothers to warn the Galadhrim.[1]

EtymologyEdit

The name Orophin might either be Sindarin or Silvan Elvish.[2] It may mean "Small tree", from the Sindarin oron ("tree") and pîn ("small"),[3] or "Mountain Peak", from orod ("mountain") and pind ("peak, crest").[4]

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In Tolkien's drafts, Orophin's name was spelled as Orfin and Orofin.[5] When Haldir first met the Fellowship, Orofin was not present to accompany his brother.[6]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
