Agree with everything you have to say [In reply to] Can't Post

 A few more thoughts:

Faramir is probably the only person in the story who could rightly be called a pacifist (and isn't it quite strange that Tolkien said that Faramir is the character most like himself?)

Plus, he (and Eowyn) get all the best lines. This:

"Then, Éowyn of Rohan, I say to you that you are beautiful. In the valleys of our hills there are flowers fair and bright, and maidens fairer still; but neither flower nor lady have I seen till now in Gondor so lovely, and so sorrowful. It may be that only a few days are left ere darkness falls upon our world, and when it comes I hope to face it steadily; but it would ease my heart, if while the Sun yet shines, I could see you still. For you and I have both passed under the wings of the Shadow, and the same hand drew us back."

Never fails to move me to tears.
