Thread: Faramir - Gandalf
but Sam (I think) says he senses something of a Wizard's air (that is, something akin to Gandalf) about Faramir. F. attributes it to, maybe, the scent of Númenor from a far distance. But the only Númenorean connection to wizards I can see is that the wizards were maia and there was a faint trace of maian "blood" passed down through Melian - > Luthien -> the Halfelven, etc. This seems rather off; Faramir should remind Sam of Aragorn more than G. by blood. I would think a Numenorean "air" would be closer to an elvish air than a wizard's.
Is it not, rather, that Sam senses an air of Gandalf because F. has spent time learning from G. what little he could?
my thoughts once again maybe fly somewhere far and make no sence to anyone but me
