Hethlin of Anorien

 February, 25 2006

I know CMC's a done deal, but since I intend to give it a thorough editing in the future, I'll include it in this thread, as well as make this a place for any other Heth questions not appropriate for the Silver Swan thread.


I often wondered if sending Faramir to Henneth-Annun was a kind of punnishment to his scholarly son from Denethor, he and Heth are probably close because she can read, and so they can discuss books, it must have been torture for him to be kept away from the library.

I don't think Faramir would have had the luxury to indulge in much reading whether he was with the Rangers or with the regular army. And he has too much a sense of duty and responsibility to wish he had, or to let that influence his decisions.

I have always imagined that it was Faramir who wanted to join the Rangers, maybe even against the wishes of Denethor. It strikes me as something that was maybe too much "dirty" work, and it was much more dangerous than being in the regular army, I assume. It strikes me as a a decision motivated by a wish for independence, either from the large shadow of his brother, or to be away from his father.

Naturally, there is no textevidence either way, and I don't remember how things are in the Unabeauverse.
