Incorrect.

Maybe it would be better to say his freedom rather than escape (but the thing is, he freed himself, so to speak)

OK. His escape did not directly cause his death. It was the reason he escaped that got him killed in the end.

If not Khm, what about Mm?
He bought his life and freedom by betraying Bar-en-Danwedh to the Orcs, only to be killed for it by Hurin.

Basically, here you conceal the person/thing/place/word/quote etc. (in short, anything Tolkien-related) in a cryptic clue. This is the same principle as the cryptic clues found in crosswords.

For once, spam has a useful purpose...

It's been ages since I did this and I'm not sure who it was originally (I have a vague recollection that it might be Finrod, but that doesn't seem right either).

So I'll hand this thread over to whoever wants it.

This is really far-fetched, but Beleg? Because, well, Turin married Niniel who cast herself into a precipice on learning that she married her brother.
