Farin was one of the Dwarves of the Grey Mountains. When his uncle King Dáin I and cousin Frór had been slain by a Cold-drake, his people were forced to flee the dragon-plagued Grey Mountains while he was just 29 years old. Farin's father, Borin, joined Thrór when he rebuilt the Kingdom under the Mountain in 2590.[source?]
Portrayal in adaptations
2021: The Lord of the Rings Online:
- Farin appears in an extended flashback depicting the Battle of Azanulbizar, in which he fights alongside his sons and grandsons.
- It is said in The Peoples of Middle-earth that dwarven women were seldom named in genealogies but if a son is seen to be 110 years younger than his father, this usually indicates an elder daughter.
