Oin [In reply to] Can't Post

Obviously Balin and Fili are the names that first spring to mind but since you asked about the "lesser dwarves", I was thinking Oin, the way his character background was established so far, could be part of the "rebelling" camp.

The reason is simple - he's a healer, in the Weta books it says they even speculated, perhaps in a joking manner, that this could mean he would also fulfill the role of a midwife within the dwarven society. We saw him capable of showing respect to the elvish medicine, so when it comes to his job, he's certainly able to overcome the traditional prejudices when things become serious. As a healer, and depending on the exact role the healers play among the dwarves, he could consider it his responsibility to try to mitigate conflicts that could potentially lead to unnecessary bloodshed. I'd like to see something like that.
