Baragund was part of the House of Bëor, the oldest of the Three Houses of Men who befriended the Elves. He was the son of Bregolas and a direct descendant of Bëor the Old. He had one daughter, Morwen and was the grandfather of Túrin Turambar. He survived the Dagor Bragollach ("Battle of Sudden Flame") and lived as an outlaw with his uncle Barahir and some companions. They were eventually betrayed to Sauron and killed.
