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