A long time ago, when he was barely able to lift his sword, Boromir had strayed into the forest and, having lost his path back, he had had to sleep in the woods. He would return home by day.

While seeking for a place to rest, he had come upon an old man cornered by hungry wolves and bravely, he had fought the wolves and saved the man.

From underneath the shabby clothing, light had erupted and Eru had appeared before him. The lord of gods had smiled upon the gaping, but not at all terrified youth and he had told Boromir:

“For showing unmatched valor and a noble heart, I shall grant you one wish. Choose wisely, Steward’s son!”

Boromir had not needed much thought before speaking.

“If ever my brother should die an untimely death, take me instead. Let him live to see the White Tree in bloom.”
