Boromir is the eldest son of Denethor II, the Ruling Steward of Gondor. Born in Third Age 2978, he was forty-one years old at the War of the Ring. After leading the defense of Osgiliath against the armies of Sauron in 3018, he went to Imladris (Rivendell) to try to understand the mysterious vision shared by him and his brother, Faramir. He became part of the Fellowship of the Ring.

At Amon Hen, the spell of the One Ring proved too powerful for Boromir and with his head filled with visions of victory over Sauron, he attempted to take it from Frodo by force. He immediately repented of his actions, but his madness drove Frodo to set out on his own, thus sundering the Fellowship.

This proved fortuitous, because Amon Hen was shortly thereafter attacked by a band of orcs. Boromir died defending the hobbits Merry and Pippin from the orcs. Later, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli gave Boromir a proper funeral, sending his body over the falls of Rauros in an elven boat, his sword and sundered horn by his side. Weeks later, his body was found and brought to Denethor, which was one of the causes of Denethor's madness.

Boromir was handsome, brave, and very strong. He delighted only in war and his pride drove him to overconfidence.


1. Boromir is really big, even for a D˙nadan. He seems to have been enormously strong and tough, and so I have given him damage reduction and CON, only to avoid being stunned, as well as several strength-based maneuvers.

2. The Horn of Vorondil is the great horn of Vorondil the Hunter, one of the greatest of the Ruling Stewards. It's sounding seems to have heartened or disheartened all who heard it, hence the bonus to Presence when it is sounded.

3. Note that, as a human, Boromir has paid double for characteristics over the normal maximum.
