‘Húrin Called Thalion ‘the Steadfast’, ‘the Strong’; son of Galdor of Dor-Lómin, husband of Morwen and father of Túrin and Nienor; lord of Dor-Lómin, vassal of Fingon. Went with Huor his brother to Gondolin; captured by Morgoth in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad and set upon Thangorodrim for many years; after his release slew Mîm in Nargothrond and brought the Nauglamír to King Thingol.’
– The Silmarillion, under Index.
‘Galdor and Hareth had two sons, Húrin and Huor. Húrin was by three years the elder, but he was shorter in stature than other men of his kin; in this he took after his mother's people, but in all else he was like Hador his grandfather, fair of face and golden-haired, strong in body and fiery of mood. But the fire in him burned steadily, and he had great endurance of will.’
– The Unfinished Tales, NARN I HÎN HÚRIN
Then little though he trusted the words of Morgoth, knowing indeed that he was without pity, Húrin took his freedom, and went forth in grief, embittered by the words of the Dark Lord; and a year was now gone since the death of Túrin his son. For twenty-eight years he had been captive in Angband, and he was grown grim to look upon. His hair and beard were white and long, but he walked unbowed, bearing a great black staff; and he was girt with a sword.
The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 22, Of the Ruin of Doriath
"But it is said that Húrin would not live thereafter...[he] cast himself at last into the western sea; and so ended the mightiest of the warriors of mortal Men."
The Simarillion Ch. 18 "Of the Ruin of Doriath"
