Gethron and his friend Grithnir were young men during the time of Hador but by the time of Túrin's youth, he and Grithnir were now older but valiant. He like Grithnir knew the lands of the Beleriand well and was chosen by Morwen, Túrin's mother to safely escort and guide the young Túrin to the Elven King Thingol of Doriath. When the company arrived, Gethron spoke for Túrin the message of his mother recounting his lineage. When Thingol kindly received the youth with honour, Gethron and Grithnir remained a while as guardians but when Grithnir fell sick and soon died Gethron decided to return to Dor-lómin. He departed with escorts from the king and when he arrived home, he told Morwen of the boy's honourable welcoming and fostering by Thingol, and she was glad.
