Boromir In The Fellowship of the Ring:
Boromir arrives at Rivendell to ask Elrond for wisdom and aid on behalf of his father, Denethor II, Steward of Gondor. He looks over the shrine to Isildur and the Shards of Narsil while Aragorn watches. When he notices Aragorn, he hastily puts the sword hilt down and simply watches as it slips off and falls to the floor.

Boromir then attends the Council of Elrond, which has been called to discuss the fate of the Ring. Boromir addresses the council with an air of arrogance based on his heritage and a little desparation, since Gondor is on the doorstep of Mordor and is the first to be affected by Sauron's rises to power. After Boromir suggests that the side of 'good' use the Ring against Sauron, Aragorn advises against it and Boromir rebukes him as a mere Ranger. Legolas then defends Aragorn by revealing to Boromir that Aragorn is Isildur's heir and is thus heir to the throne of Gondor and someone to whom Boromir owes his allegience. Boromir does not react well to this revelation. However, later in the council after it is decided that Frodo would take the Ring to Mt. Doom in Mordor and not to Gondor, Boromir nevertheless offers his services.

It does not take long for Frodo to start to have concerns about Boromir and his intentions toward the Ring. At Lothlórien, Boromir is disturbed by whatever Galadriel tells him. After pleading with Aragorn to lead the Fellowship to Gondor, he confronts Frodo near Amon Hen. At first he is calm, but then he gets desperate and attacks Frodo, who escapes. Shortly afterward, Saruman's Uruk-hai attack and Boromir redeems himself by fighting valiantly. He is mortally wounded by Lurtz. Before he dies, Boromir acknowledges Aragorn as his king.
