Post Chapter XII, The Return of Turin to Dor-lomin
on: December 26, 2007 06:59
1) Wy did Turin finally decide to return to his homeland?

2) Which of Turin's character flaws once again rears its head and causes problems for him?

3) Most leaders have advisors to help them with important decisions. The only advisors Turin ever accepted were Labidal, in his youth, and Beleg, as an adult. Do you see any differences in his decisions, with and without the influence of an advisor?

He returned because Glaurung made him believe that if he didn't go back to his mother and sister that they would be harmed. He went back to save them.

2) Which of Turin's character flaws once again rears its head and causes problems for him?

His pride and his temper.

3) Most leaders have advisors to help them with important decisions. The only advisors Turin ever accepted were Labidal, in his youth, and Beleg, as an adult. Do you see any differences in his decisions, with and without the influence of an advisor?

He seems to make hasty decisions that turn out badly when he doesn't get advice. When Turin was young he did seem to take Sador's advice to heart. But as both he and his pride grew he didn't seem to take the advice of Beleg. He listened to Beleg and likely valued his opinion but in the end he always chose his own way. For example, returning to Doriath.
