What was the most important decision you ever made, and why?

To save the life of my Captain Faramir. The ‘why’, should be obvious. It was not his time to go, all of Gondor still needed him. To leave his fate in the hands of a madman was simply unacceptable. Denethor had ceased to be his true self, and why the other guards in my company could not see this will always remain a mystery to me. I will always lament the two Guards that fell as my sword gained me passage, but in truth, they made their decision to continue following a madman, and the only possible outcome would be more madness. Were I faced with this trial again, I know I would follow the same course, again. I chose the right path that day. Doing what you must do is not always easy to live with.

If you could change one moment in your past, what would it be?

Ah, that very same moment in Rath Dínen. If only Denethor had not lost his mind… but the past cannot be changed. It is but idle daydreaming to dwell on such things. Better to think ahead to the future, and build upon the actions of yesterday.
