Saeros was a Nandorian Elf of Doriath and one of King Thingol's high councilors.

BiographyEdit

Saeros had no love for Túrin Turambar and didn't like his close association with the king, being either jealous or generally unfriendly with all mankind. He spoke ill of Túrin and his people at a meeting provoking him to anger and was injured. Later, he tried to waylay Túrin in the woods but Túrin overcame him and sent him to run naked in the wild. When attempting to leap across a small fjord, he lost footing and was killed by impact upon a great rock below. It was this incident that caused Túrin to go into exile from Doriath.[2][3]

Saeros also had been a friend of the minstrel Daeron.

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In earlier versions of The Silmarillion Saeros was called Orgol, before which Orgof, and was a kinsman to King Thingol. Instead of confronting Túrin in the woods, he taunted him and was killed during a dinner party by a goblet that was thrown at him by Túrin. As Orgol, he was one of the Nandor who dwelt in Amon Ereb before the fall of their Lord Denethor.[1]
