Sting Character Trivia

OK, this is my second shot at the LOTR quizzes. Here’s the question:

Which character’s tomb was found in Moria?

Hint: This character is not seen in the movie.

It's over a year since anyone asked anything in here, so I think the 10 days-rule applies here. Anyone?

Enedwaith, where did Faramir dwell after the War of the Ring?

No, it wasn't Dol Amroth. Prince Imrahil rules there. I know it's somewhere in Ithilien and I do believe that NightKnight is right.

lol. So sorry that I didn't know, but it seems as if two guesses are allowed, and Legate kind of guessed two, and therefore would have gotten it.

Thanks Beleg.

Well, I actually wasn't sure which one was it, but I knew it was one of them. But okay, let's have another.

Could you name some Middle-Earth's vegetarian? (Of course, the question is not based just on an assumption, but on real evidence from the books which explicitely states that someone was a vegetarian.)

Depends...Lacto-ovo vegetarianism means you also eat honey, milk and eggs, while veganism means none of them.
But I was thinking about Fangorn. I mean ent draughts are vegan, right?

See, my first thought was Bilbo, because of the trolls arguing over how best to cook him. However I don't have my copy of The Hobbit with me, and something's making me think "caught and eaten" is more specific... maybe it's one of the dwarves. I'll have to check back.

Thorin? Wasn't he the last to come up to the group of trolls, and realised the danger?
Not that anyone was actually cooked, though, so I suppose this is wrong...

i was going to say Bilbo but he has already been said... and now i want to say Bombur because when he got captured by the spiders of Mirkwood he was being constantly poked while the other dwarves were poisoned by the spiders...

Nah, all your answers are wrong. One hint: what am I saying in the question is absolutely true and is 100% according to the book. And it is no metaphore or something like that. Quite the opposite (and that's the main thing on which the riddle is based): I am interpretating the book literally.
