|Title||Captain of the White Tower, Steward-prince of Gondor|
Boromir was son of Denethor II, older brother of Faramir. He was described in the books as a tall, powerful man. Often he spoke of his people and was proud to be a Gondorian. 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 Rings' power seemed to be great over the captain of Gondor, he 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 Urk Hai, and Boromir slew many in defence of Merry and Pippin, he was so great in battle that the enemy had to use arrows to fell him. His death marked the breaking of the fellowship.
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-EarthII. 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.
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.
