I was quite surprised there was no poll about the Fellowship, so I made one! If you want, explain your favourite member in the comments.

My favourite is Gimli. Why? He's a frickin dwarf, that's enough!

My favourite Character always was Boromir (though here I had to vote for Bill the Pony ^^).

The strong son of lesser men, that only wanted to save his people from destruction. He falls for the feigned promises of power from the One Ring, yet redeems himself by giving his life away to protect two little Halflings.

A tragic, relatable Character. ^^

'Relatable' is a good word to describe Boromir, for he, similarly as the most of average nova-days people continuously resists much greater forces throughout the story.

Also, that Bill the Pony thing was *coughstolencough* from: http://www.playbuzz.com/quizmasterjuju10/who-is-your-favorite-member-of-the-fellowship-of-the-ring :)

Form my point of view Adamin is right about his selection and explanation. Boromir is my favourite member of the Fellowship as well.
But I had to select Bill the Pony in the first place regardless.

I really don't know why, but Frodo is my favourite member of the Fellowship. xD

idk, Leviathan, if it were between him or Pippin, i'd choose Merry.

Simply said: Gandalf  :)

I've always been fascinated by the fact that his pivotal and fundamental presence deeply (and naturally) influences the Fellowship being him physically present among its Members or not.

I'm for Sam! His goodness and optimism are just so amazing. Even in the middle of mordor where hope seemed to be a distant thought!

That was Beautiful

Indeed, a very good  summary though I'd like to add something imho important to the end. ^^

Zitat
[Boromir:]"Farewell, Aragorn! Go to Minas Tirith and save my people! I have failed."
"No!" said Aragorn, taking his hand and kissing his brow. "You have conquered. Few have gained such a victory. Be at peace! Minas Tirith shall not fall!"
Boromir smiled.
- The Two Towers, Book Three, Chapter One: The Departure of Boromir -

It is not just a simple promise from Aragorn, not just soothing words for the dying Boromir. It is the testimony of Boromirs Salvation.

You have conquered. Aragorn is not talking about the fight, the twenty dead orcs lying around. Boromir has conquered his lust for the Ring, broke free of its influence. He was about to take the Ring from Frodo, possibly killing him in the process, whom Boromir has sworn to protect. But at the brink of it he turned away.

Few have gained such a victory. Isildur himself was not able to do the same, turning away from the Ring, and he was counseled by Elrond and Cirdan. But Boromir did. And in his turning away he achieved redemption, victory, by doing the ultimate good action: Sacrificing himself to protect his friends.

Boromir dies smiling, not only because of the promise that Minas Tirith shall not fall, but also because of the assurance that his sins are atoned for.
