Book/Source: LotR post-RoTK, though the name is taken from the HoME - it was JRRT's original name for Faramir.
Disclaimer: My character, but JRRT's world.
Note: Yet another for the sixth sense challlenge. I'll shut up now and go away.
Falborn dozes by the fireside, old soldier become one of the Steward’s family. What family there is left.
Once he rode with Ecthelion’s armies, dealing out death. Now he deals with the long, slow death of the senses.
Young Faramir says the King has come at last to claim the throne, has cast down the Dark Lord’s tower. Says he’ll bring this Elessar Telcontar to meet him.
Falborn laughs a toothless laugh, wipes joyous tears from rheumy eyes.
Near blind he may be, and more than a little deaf.
But still he recognises Thorongil the moment he enters the room.
