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. His body was broken on a great rock in the chasm of an unnamed stream. It was this incident that caused Túrin to go into exile from Doriath.
