"Who was he?"
Aragorn and Eldarion had spent many nights going looking at the list of names of those who had died fighting in the Ring War. As they went Aragorn described the actions of each of them: why they were heroes and how they came to die. He was confident their stories would inspire Eldarion, although Aragorn hoped his son would never have to face a war as desperate as the one he himself had.
"What did he do?" Eldarion asked.
Aragorn looked to where he pointed and saw the name written. He told him, "He was my friend."
