Túrin was the only son of Húrin Thalion and Morwen Eledhwen. He had a younger sister Urwen, whom everyone called "Lalaith" because of her laughter. However, she died in childhood of plague. Túrin became a close friend of Sador the one-legged carpenter, whom he named Labadal ("hop-a-foot"). After Húrin was captured in the Nírnaeth Arnoediad, Túrin remained with his mother Morwen, who hid him from the Easterlings that Morgoth had sent to Hithlum, fearing they would kill Túrin or enslave him. Un...
Time in Doriath
When Túrin was eight years old, Morwen sent him to the Elven realm of Doriath, where he was adopted by Thingol as a son after meeting the Elf-maiden Nellas in the woods. After this, Túrin's second sister Nienor was born. Túrin was restless, and as soon as he was permitted he joined Beleg Cúthalion on the marches of Doriath, fighting the orcs of Morgoth. It was in this time he received the Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin from Thingol. In his early battles his helm protected him from many injuries, as...
Life as an outlaw
Túrin accidentally caused the death of Saeros, one of Thingol's counselors who provoked and attacked him. Before he could be either punished or forgiven, he fled, eventually encountering a band of outlaws that dwelt south of Brethil. There he identified himself only as Neithan (the wronged). The men of the band realised he was by far the most skilled of the group so they spoke not out against him. After seeing him terrorize an innocent woman, Túrin killed their leader, and became their leader...
The second prophecy of Mandos (later removed from The Silmarillion by Christopher Tolkien) states that at the End of Time Morgoth would wage a final battle against the Valar, the Final Battle, and that Túrin Turambar reincarnated would plunge Gurthang into Morgoth's heart and defeat him once and for all, exterminating evil forever, and avenging the Children of Húrin. The supposed resemblance of Túrin to figures from medieval tales can be confirmed by part of a letter Tolkien wrote to Milton Waldman, a publisher, concerning the publication of his works.
The name Túrin means "he who desires mastery", from the Sindarin words tûr ("power, mastery, lord") and ind (desire, heart"). In Quenya, his name becomes Turindo, from tur ("master") and indo("mood"). Turambar means "Master of Doom", from the Quenya tur ("master") and ambar("doom").↑ The History of Middle-earth, Vol. XI: The War of the Jewels, Part One: The Grey Annals↑ The Children of Húrin, Narn i Chîn Húrin, The Tale of the Children of Húrin, I: "The Childhood of Túrin"↑ Unfinished Tales, Part One: The First Age, II: "Narn i Chîn Húrin" (The Tale of the Children of Húrin)

Beleg "followed no man", and "could not be restrained". He and his friend Mablung were the only Elves of Doriath to fight with the Union of Maedhros in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, as KingThingol would have nothing to do with the war. Together with Mablung he was one of the great captains of the Sindar, and he was part of the Hunting of the Great Wolf Carcharoth during the trials of Beren and Lúthien. Later, he became a good friend and brother-in-arms of Túrin Turambar, a young Man of Dor-lómin. When Túrin left Doriath, Beleg got permission from Thingol to follow him into exile and bring him the king's pardon, wielding the black sword Anglachel that Eöl had forged and given to Thingol in tribute. Beleg found the band of outlaws Túrin was leading while Túrin was away scouting, and was tortured by some of them until Túrin found and released him. Unable to persuade Túrin to return to Doriath with him, Beleg returned to King Thingol and gained permission to join Túrin in his free exploits. H...
He wielded the sword Anglachel, forged by Eol, and given to Beleg by King Thingol. His bow was called Belthronding and his arrow was Dailir.
In early writings, Beleg was not immediately killed by Túrin. After an ambush, Túrin was taken alive and Beleg was left for dead. He was eventually healed of his wounds by Melian, which allowed him to continue in search for his friend. He came upon Gwindor in Taur-nu-Fuin, and together they rescued Túrin. However, Túrin slew Beleg by misadventure.↑ The History of Middle-earth, Vol. 11: The War of the Jewels, Part One.

I've always viewed it as this, the Hobbit is the comedy feel good adventure, Lotr is the massive epic drama that is both parts good and evil, while Children of Hurin is the tragedy, all 3 archetypical stories in one amazing universe.
