Barahir lived with twelve companions on the highland of Dorthonion. They were betrayed to Sauron by Gorlim the Unhappy, tricked by a devised phantom of his wife whom he loved, and slaughtered in the Massacre of Tarn Aeluin. The rest of Barahir's companions were Gildor, Belegund, Baragund, Urthel, Dagnir, Ragnor, Radhruin, Dairuin, Arthad and Hathaldir. Barahir's son Beren escaped the slaughter and lived to a great destiny.
- "But still there lived in hiding cold
undaunted, Barahir the bold
of land bereaved, of lordship shorn
who once a prince of Men was born
and now an outlaw lurked and lay
in the hard heath and woodland gray
and with him clung his faithful men
but Beren his son and other ten.
Yet small as was their hunted band
still fell and fearless was each hand
and strong deed they wrought yet oft
and loved the woods, whose ways more soft
them seemed than thralls of that black throne
to live and languish in halls of stone."
- ― Lay of Leithian, Canto II, lines 127-140
