Boromir has not had an easy life. He has been fighting all his life to protect his people in a kingdom stewarded by his mad father. He is struggling to keep the rising powers of evil at bay and keep his kingdom safe. At first he tries to claim the One Ring for himself to gain strength, but he agrees to join the Fellowship and bring the Ring to its destruction. He is a great swordsman and teaches the Hobbits how to defend themselves in battle. Yet, he is torn between protecting Frodo in his quest to bring the Ring to Mordor, and his desire to finally have the power his kingdom would gain if he could bring the Ring home. In the end he will have to choose where his loyalties lie, and pay the price.
