O Boromir! [In reply to] Can't Post


Quote
It's in perfect accordance with Boromir's character in the book, too. There he was revealed to have been taken care of his little brother since they were young, even though their father - whom he loved too - saw little in him. That Faramir loved Boromir so dearly is the best defence he has, IMO. Don't say he is biased because he's a brother. As a sister I can tell siblings don't automatically just love each other, it must come from real admiration and closeness as always



I agree. Faramir and Boromir were VERY close, but Boromir was very proud like his father and felt that as the eldest son he bore the weight of responsibility of protecting Gondor was upon his shoulders. Just as his father expected of him.

In that guardian-like role he also shielded his brother from his father whenever possible as well, which carried down into acting as a defender of the Hobbits as was his nature.

Aragorn saw the good in him, and when Boromir dies defending Merry and Pippin, he forgives him for his moment of weakness. He was a good man, but the weight of his obligations was what tempted him to take the Ring. This allowed Aragorn to see the inherant danger of it and enabled him to resist it, thus letting Frodo go off with Sam.

Faramir did not have the weight of the fate of Gondor pressing upon his shoulder like Boromir, and was also able to resist its temptaion, especially after learning of Boromir's downfall. He knew his brother well.


Take this Brother May it Serve you Well
