TitleCaptain of the White Tower, Steward-prince of Gondor
Age41 At time of death

Boromir was son of Denethor II, and older brother of Faramir. He was described in the books as a tall, powerful man. Often he spoke of his people and was a proud man of Gondor. Famous for his fighting skills across Middle-earth, Boromir was also an excellent captain of his men, he most notably retook the city of Osgiliath from Souron. However he left Gondor's armies in the hands of Faramir when he was summoned to Rivendell. During the council of Elrond, Boromir was assigned as a member of the fellowship along with eight others. The One Ring's power seemed to be great over the captain of Gondor, who felt he could use it as a weapon against the enemy. His folly led him to attempt to steal from whom he swore to protect, Frodo. It was at this time that the company was attacked by Saruman's Uruk-hai, and Boromir slew many in defense of Merry and Pippin. So great and wrathful was he in his last moments that the enemy was forced to attack him from afar with arrows. His death marked the breaking of the fellowship.

[edit] Games

Boromir does not appear in Lord of the Rings games as a playable character often. He is a hero in both The Lord of the Rings: The Battle For Middle-Earth and The The Lord of the Rings: The Battle For Middle-Earth 2. In both he bears his trademark 'Horn of Gondor' ability which stuns nearby opponents. He is a combat orientated hero with high hp and damage points.

[edit] In the Movies

In the movies, Boromir is played by Sean Bean, who portrayed several important aspects of the character including his honor, and his belief that his family should be more than stewards of Gondor, as well as the temptation of the Ring and its effects on the doomed prince.
