|Dead or Alive||Alive|
|Status||Companion of Thorin|
Glóin, son of Gróin, was one of the twelve companions of Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins on the Quest of Erebor. He was a descendant of Durin the Deathless, and brother of Óin. Glóin and his son Gimli were sent to Rivendell as an embassy from Dáin II to bring news of Erebor, Moria, and what they knew of Sauron's plans; they arrived in time to attend the Council of Elrond. The name Gloin is found in the Völuspá. He was a playable hero in the Dwarven Faction in the Electronic Arts Real-Time Strategy game The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II, and specialized in attacks that would either destroy or disable the opponents' buildings.
He is portrayed by Peter Hambleton in Peter Jackson's adaptation of The Hobbit and by John Rhys-Davies in a brief, uncredited cameo in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
The Gloin minifigure has a unique orange hair/beard piece, a unique red torso with a large belt printed on it, and brown short legs. He comes with the same axes as Gimli.
