"...and so I am forever cursed, disgraced as forsworn." Boromir ended bleakly.

Théodred was silent for a long moment. "I do not believe it," he finally replied. "What greater gift can we give, than to lay down our lives in defense of the weak?"

"But the order was to capture, not kill them. My blood was shed for nothing."

"They did not know that, nor did you. They saw you willing to die for them, and that memory gave them strength for all that came after. Long will you be remembered, not for your fall from grace, but your sacrifice."
