''The Children of Húrin'' is one of Tolkien's darker works and deals more starkly with darker subject matter, and is less well-known than ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''. Fundamentally a Greek tragedy, there is no happy ending here. ''The Children of Húrin'' is much closer in tone to the likes of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', and overturns the common conception of Tolkien as a writer of BlackAndWhiteMorality.

---> Then he fled from them, like the wind, and they were filled with wonder and fear. But Mablung said: "Some strange and dreadful thing has chanced that we know not. Let us follow him and aid him if we may: for now he is fey and witless." But Túrin sped far before them, and came to Cabed-en-Aras, and stood still; and he heard the roaring of the water, and saw that all the trees near and far were withered, and their sere leaves fell mournfully, as though winter had come in the first days of summer. "Cabed-en-Aras, Cabed Naeramarth!" he cried. "I will not defile your waters where Níniel was washed. For all my deeds have been ill, and the latest the worst." Then he drew forth his sword, and said: "Hail Gurthang, iron of death, thou alone now remainest! But what lord or loyalty dost thou know, save the hand that wieldeth thee? From no blood wilt thou shrink! Wilt thou take Túrin Turambar? Wilt thou slay me swiftly?" And from the blade rang a cold voice in answer: "Yea, I will drink thy blood, that I may forget the blood of Beleg my master, and the blood of Brandir slain unjustly. I will slay thee swiftly." Then Túrin set the hilts upon the ground, and cast himself upon the point of Gurthang, and the black blade took his life.

** Okay, Beleg was more of a BigBrotherMentor than TheObiWan, but he still gave Túrin plenty of help and advice, and still got killed before everything was said and done.
