My list:
Frodo
Gandalf
Faramir
Treebeard
Quickbeam

closely followed by Éowyn and Sam... and Ghan-buri-Ghan. Curious mix. Tongue

"A journalist once asked me what I would like my epitaph to be and I said I think I would like it to be 'He did very little harm'. And that's not easy. Most people seem to me to do a great deal of harm. If I could be remembered as having done very little, that would suit me." ~ Paul Eddington

Before kids, exercising with LOTR meant listening to the soundtrack while I ran.

After kids, exercising with LOTR means having an all out dance party with the little ones to the "Break the Dam Release the River" disco mix form the Lego game.

One who never appeared in the films. [In reply to] Can't Post

Dernhelm.

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”

That's tough [In reply to] Can't Post

I really want to say that its all of them. Almost all of them is probably the best way to put it.

I will say my top two are Aragorn and Gandalf. In all seriousness I can't just short list multiples past that because I'd be listing almost all of them. So many amazing characters.

And Cirdan the Shipwright(!):

http://paulashwellreviews.wordpress.com/...e-tolkien-fans-only/

‘As they came to the gates Cirdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them. Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and we was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars; and he looked at them and bowed, and said ‘All is now ready.’

Perhaps the most fascinating Individual in Middle Earth
