Right, first of (hopefully) many threads to come. So many thanks to Arwen for mentioning about this idea and to Taz for executing it.
So, what is your favorite character in 'The Children of Húrin'. Also, if you want to, do tell a few words about your choice of character and why you chose him/her.
That's the question.
My favorite character in 'The Children of Húrin', is Beleg Strongbow. I admire him so much and mainly for the fact that he didn't abandon Túrin, when he finally found him. Túrin had strayed from his noble path, befriended murderers and also strongly refused to return to Doriath and still.. Beleg couldn't just leave him. He chose to stay and even though Túrin's newly found friends tortured him, he still chose to stay. For his friendship to Túrin was so strong, so unbreakable.
King Thingol had ordered Beleg to find Túrin and bring him home and if he couldn't do so, he should've left him, but he didn't. And that is true friendship. Shame that this joy too was taken away from me, when a dark fate befall Beleg and he was accidentally slain by Túrin.
Truly a sad book.. But that's my choice.
How about you?
