  • Ummm, Aragorn is half man half elf, also called Dunadan. Boromir is a man in the first book/movie from Minas Tirith.--Dance4thedead 23:18, 22 February 2010 (EST)
    • The Dúnedain were a race of Men descended from the Númenóreans. Dúnedan means "man of the west". They were also Elf-friends, but they were of the race of Men, and certainly not half Elf. An couple which consisted of an Elf and a Man would produce a half-Elven child, who would would not belong to a distinct race from Elves and Men, and would ultimately have to choose to which race they belong. Although Elves and Men were able to mate and produce fertile offspring, their final fates are separate: Elves are immortal and whereas Men are mortal. Aragorn was mortal. He was of the race of Men. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:32, 22 February 2010 (EST)
      • He was 210 when he died. Please tell me RGS, when you last heard of a person that was 210 years old. Donedain where no longer considered ordinary men, according to Tolkin--Dance4thedead 23:47, 22 February 2010 (EST)
        • Methuselah. Regardless, Aragorn was not half Elf. He was a descendant of Elrond's Half-elven twin brother, so he certainly had Elf ancestry, but not half. The Númenóreans were granted long life, but not immortality. The very fact that Aragorn died shows that he did not choose the Elven race. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:55, 22 February 2010 (EST)
          • Point taken, but shouldn't Boromir be listed with the men, as he was in the original fellowship, along with Merridoc and Peregrin (Merry and Pippin)? And honest question, are you really obsessed with Heroes and LOTR, or do you have the books/google open in front of you? Because remembering these elvish spellings from three months ago is really making my brain hurt. ;)--Dance4thedead 00:05, 23 February 2010 (EST)
            • Sure, feel free to add Boromir's name to the list of characters. Nothing wrong there. Yes, I'm quite obsessed with Heroes and Lord of the Rings. And yes, I use sources like Google to grab the correct spellings (especially the accent marks). :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:15, 23 February 2010 (EST)
