number nine: Boromir, Captain of the White Tower
“Beneath Amon Hen I heard his cry. There many foes he fought, 
His cloven shield, his broken sword, they to the water brought. 
His head so proud, his face so fair, his limbs they laid to rest, 
And Rauros, golden Rauros-falls, bore him upon its breast.”

number four: Samwise the Brave
“One tiny Hobbit against all the evil the world could muster. A sane being would have given up, but Samwise burned with a magnificent madness, a glowing obsession to surmount every obstacle, to find Frodo, destroy the Ring, and cleanse Middle Earth of its festering malignancy. He knew he would try again. Fail, perhaps. And try once more. A thousand, thousand times if need be, but he would not give up the quest.”

number ten: Éomer Éadig
Out of doubt, out of dark to the day’s rising I came singing in the sun, sword unsheathing. To hope’s end I rode and to heart’s breaking: Now for wrath, now for ruin and a red nightfall!”

number two: Faramir, Captain of the White Tower
“Here was one with an air of high nobility such as Aragorn at times revealed, less high perhaps, yet also less incalculable and remote: one of the Kings of Men born into a later time, but touched with the wisdom and sadness of the Eldar Race. He knew now why Beregond spoke his name with love. He was a captain that men would follow, that he would follow, even under the shadow of the black wings.”

number seven: Gandalf
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,“ said Frodo.
"So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

number fifteen: Arwen Undómiel 
“For I am the daughter of Elrond. I shall not go with him when he departs to the Havens: for mine is the choice of Luthien, and as she so have I chosen, both the sweet and the bitter.”
