Blodren son of Ban son was an Easterling, captured by Morgoth, and tormented because he was one of the faithful that withstood Uldor the Accursed, and subsequently entered the service of Morgoth and was released, and sent in search of Túrin.
However, in the same battle Blodren himself was slain by a chance arrow in the dark.
 Other versions of the legendarium
Blodrin son of Ban was a member of Túrin's outlaw company in the earlier versions of the legendarium. He was a Gnome who, after becoming unsatisfied with very little plunder that they acquired, betrayed the company to the Orcs. He was killed in the attack at Amon Rûdh in F.A. 489 (at that stage of writing it was F.A. 189).
