Boromir was part of the Fellowship of the Ring in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. He was the favourite son of Lord Denethor, the Steward of Gondor, and the brother and best friend of Faramir. A strong but deeply flawed Gondorian warrior, who was the second member of the Fellowship to fall. Lured by the power of the One Ring, he attempted to take it from Frodo at Amon Hen. After realizing the Ring was controlling him and coming to his senses, he fought bravely at Amon Hen, protecting the two remaining Hobbits, Merry and Pippin (Frodo and Sam had departed soon before the battle to continue on their own for fear their other friends would also fall to the Ring). Boromir died shortly after Aragorn found him from the wounds inflicted by the arrows of Lurtz, and to avenge Boromir, Aragorn decapitated Lurtz.

Boromir has not had an easy life. He has been fighting all his life to protect his people in a kingdom stewarded by his mad father. He is struggling to keep the rising powers of evil at bay and keep his kingdom safe. At first he tries to claim the One Ring for himself to gain strength, but he agrees to join the Fellowship and bring the Ring to its destruction. He is a great swordsman and teaches the Hobbits how to defend themselves in battle. Yet, he is torn between protecting Frodo in his quest to bring the Ring to Mordor, and his desire to finally have the power his kingdom would gain if he could bring the Ring home. In the end he will have to choose where his loyalties lie, and pay the price.
