Orophin by Lori Deitrick

Orophin was a Silvan Elf of Lothlórien, the brother of Haldir and Rúmil. He was one of three wardens met by the Fellowship as they entered the Golden Wood.[1]


Of the name Orophin, it is said that it is "suitable to Sindarin sounds and patterns" although it is "not clearly etymologizable as Sindarin".[2]

Orophin could perhaps means "Small Tree", from oron and pîn.[source?]
