Eryan, who is Minstrel Boy? Is he a character from a novel? I don't know that one.
Elladan and Elrohir were ruthless orc-killers because of their mother. Cant say I blame them.
I think they were rather like Beren, who loved all the animals and was vegetarian, but who hated orcs with a passion. It seems to be a common condition in ME. :D I think this strange polarity in their character makes them all the more fascinating.
Tolkien used similar ideas in many of his characters. Look also at Eowyn the girl-woman warrior, Aragorn the vagrant yet kingly ranger, Gandalf the kindly grandfatherly Maia Spirit and especially Frodo, the meek, bookish hero!
Does anyone else make this observation? or disagree? It is an idea that I will deginately file away for future reference. :)
