Borin was born in 2450.  He was the son of Nain II and brother of Dain I. He had a son named Farin and was the great-great grandfather of Gimli.

Most of the folk of Durin left the Grey Mountains after Dain I was slain by a great cold-drake.  Borin accompanied Thror, Dain’s heir, to Erebor, where they became prosperous and lived well.  Borin died in 2711.
