Brodda was a lord of the Easterlings. He usurped the lordship of Dor-lómin after Húrin was captured, and Morwen had since left the area. He married Aerin sometime after that. A little while before the coming of 499, the First Age, Brodda was involved in a battle that took place inside the hall of his own grandious home. He was ultimately slain by Túrin in his rage.
