Oldest son of Denethor, the steward of Gondor, Boromir was a prince in all but name: he was implanted into a noble house and heir apparent to a ruling tradition that spanned back for a thousand years. Boromir was a proud and strong man who was considered by his fellow soldiers to be one of the most skilled swordsman of Gondor. He triumphed as a captain in the Gondorian army while leading the forces against Sauron at Osgiliath, where he deterred a throng of Orcs that had overrun the former capital city. Following a powerful dream Boromir shared with his brother Faramir, Boromirs father commanded his son to ride north as the ambassador for Gondor to attend the Council of Elrond. He later agreed to join the Fellowship on its quest to destroy The One Ring. In a single moment of weakness, Boromir attempted to take the Ring from Frodo, which would in turn lead to his demise as he single-handedly defended hobbits, Merry and Pippin, from the hands of Saruman's Uruk-hai before falling under a rain of arrows. Boromir's sword was single-handed, big, broad and powerful - a fit complimentary to its owner. To use it required someone with great strength, which this skilled warrior abundantly possessed.
