Orophin

Orophin was a Silvan-elf from Lothlórien.

BiographyEdit

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]

He, like his brother Rúmil, 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.

EtymologyEdit

Orophin could mean "Small Tree", from oron and pîn, or "Mountain Peak", from orod and pind.[2]
