Younger brother of Thorin Oakenshield; son of Thrain II. Frerin was born in 2751 of the Third Age as the son of Thrain II. He had an older brother named Thorin II Oakenshield and a younger sister named Dis. The family lived in the Lonely Mountain until it was attacked by the dragon Smaug in 2770. The family wandered for what could of been one hundred years. In the Battle of Azanulbizar in 2799, Frerin fought with his father in the first assault. Azog's forces drove Frerin and many of his fellow Dwarven warriors, including his father Thrain II, into the forest near Mirrormere. Frerin died there.
