My kind are not as the Children of Ilúvatar. A hound does not betray his master, but follows him loyally wherever he leads. I left my home in fair Valinor to follow Celegorm to Middle-earth and never thought to question his bidding.

That was before I met Lúthien. Never before had I beheld so fair a maiden, nor one so sorrowful. My heart was filled with love for such a lady. For the first time I regretted obeying my master by bringing Lúthien to him.

I knew then that I must choose. I helped Lúthien escape and betrayed my Master.
