Sagroth was one of the guards that Hardang, the Warden of Brethil, had assigned to keep watch at the Haudh-en-Elleth. He was the first to spot the sleeping Húrin when he had come to that place. A fellow guard, Forhend, said that Sagroth could be trusted to always find trouble, for he knew that Hardang would not be pleased with the discovery of Húrin within Brethil. [1]

Later, when Hardang wanted to send Manthor away while he dealt with Húrin, he told him to go until Captain Avranc came to take command (this was an on-the-spot promotion of Avranc). Manthor immediately quit his service to Hardang and stated that he had left Sagroth, "a woodman older and wiser" than Avranc in command.[2]

Other Versions of the Legendarium

When "The Wanderings of Húrin" was in draft form, in the second appearance of Sargoth's name it was emended to Galhir but then returned to Sargoth.[3]
