I personally enjoy [In reply to] Can't Post

Going for walks in my local(massive) forest as well, simply for the fact it reminds me of the elves! It's just so peaceful, I find secluded trails through the forest that aren't even cemented and I walk for hours.Wink

You forgot Samwise the brave! [In reply to] Can't Post

Sam is uncontested as my favorite LOTR character. He is: undying loyalty, cheerfulness, courage. He doesn't really give a damn about the ring, just wants to protect Frodo. Sam fights off Shelob, encourages Frodo over and over, and finally carries him up Mount Doom. "Frodo wouldn't have gotten far without Sam!"

Favorite character [In reply to] Can't Post

I recall having responded to a similar thread in the Pollantėr not so long ago but I've no problem responding again since my favorite characters seems to change at times.

It is difficult for me to narrow it down to one character but if I must I'll probably choose Gandalf. Charismatic, wise, mystic, powerful, strange he's pretty much got everything that makes it a great character. Who can think of LOTR without thinking of Gandalf? Not me. No wonder is as become over years a figure, an emblem. I also very much like character such as Aragorn, Merry, Galadriel, Frodo, Sam, Legolas, Tųor, Tųrin, Finarfin, Fingolfin, Turgon.

My favourite characters [In reply to] Can't Post

in the book are Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn. I'm not entirely happy with the film versions, though.

I love Turin too! [In reply to] Can't Post

He would be my 3rd choice! He is just so grim and depressesed, but if you read the children of hurin, you definetley get why: he had such a hard and terrible life, and I pity for him when I read it. He has witnessed so many tragedies.Frown

Definitely Frodo and Sam [In reply to] Can't Post

Neither would have gotten far without each other; Frodo's perseverance was fueled by Sam's ever-burning loyalty, and Sam's courage by Frodo's strength.

The Moth is also a favorite- it is the unsung hero!

'What are we holding on to, Sam?'
'There's good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for!'


'I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you!'

This could be from the LOTR books or movies, the hobbit books or movies, the sillmarillion, the children of Hurin, unfinished tales, any video game( lotr conquest, battle for middle earth, the third age, the white council, guardians of middle earth, war in the north) or even from the appendices.

Apologies [In reply to] Can't Post

I mistakenly just read the title of the thread, which is: Favourite character in the lord of the ring

Probably not the best title in TORN-thread history...Smile

When it comes to LOTR, [In reply to] Can't Post

then I'd have to say Aragorn.

But when it comes to the Hobbit, then I always found Beorn to be fascinating. I need honey daily - and he could supply it AND wrap me up in his strong arms. Mmmm.Wink

I will go there ... and back again.

Boromir [In reply to] Can't Post

He didnīt want to be the best, he just didnīt want to fail. He did not desire to be a king with a hot lady at his side, he just wanted to protect his people. His greatest fear was failing, and it was this fear that led him to his death.

Of course, as with all of Tolkienīs works, the roots of the characters are far more deeper than some would suspect. There is a little bit of Boromir in every one of us. He is the great soldier that doesnīt know which path to take.

The main issue he had? Galadriel detected it with a single glance: lack of hope. He didnīt understand how a little thing like a hobbit could change the world. He didnīt see the value of will, as he himself did not have much of it. He was one of those people who doesnīt understand much more than what is in front of their eyes.

Boromir did not believe Galadriel. "I see no hope". But there was hope, Boromir, albeit a faint one, about to be extinguished, easy to look over...but still there, amidst an ocean of darkness.

Boromir only saw the darkness in front of him, and chose to enter it and defeat it. He didnīt see the flare in the distance, and in the end, evilness consumed him. He was left morally destroyed by the ring, and then, in those brilliant seconds with him on the ground, he realizes it: there is hope.

Frodo. Sam. Merry. Pippin. The hobbits, who have resisted the corruption of the ring all along. I tried, and I failed.

They are the true heroes. They can beat Sauron. My people can be protected. There is hope. It is then that he raises his sword to defend the two little hobbits.

Because physical power is not the key; it is will power. I like this character because he represents an aspect of human being that I know and he reflects it perfectly.

If only you could have lived a little bit longer, Boromir, to see the great days of Gondor renewed. But your fate would not be that.


On a side note, Sean Bean was a damn good actor, the casting was perfect...

Some favorites [In reply to] Can't Post

I completely agree. I can't say I have an "absolute" favorite because Tolkien literature is filled with so many wonderful, inspiring characters.

I can share some favorites, though, including but not limited to: Galadriel, Eowyn, Bilbo, Pippin, Treebeard...
