Well you're right in that they did all do that, but so did many others who are named...that's not what I had in mind.
But you're kind of lukewarm, I'd say.

No, that's not it, either.
It's something they all do if you look at the text of LotR. Something no other named character does.

They speak the name of Elbereth? Although, I think Arwen does too...

Hmm... drat, Bilbo does... nevermind

Sophia, in fact you're right! The actual answer is that they all *call* to Elbereth.
(Both Aragorn and Bilbo mention her, but they don't call to her. The song calling to Elbereth is sung in Rivendell, and by Gildor's people, but the singer isn't named.)

Well done, your go...

All of their fathers were killed, or in Turin's case, imprisoned while the he was still young. In other words, they were all fatherless.

There were (at least) two of all of them, except Eomer.

Aragorn I was a Chieftain of the North, Aragorn Elessar was King of Gondor/Arnor.

Beren Erchamion was wedded to Luthien, Beren of Gondor was the steward who let Saruman have Isengard.

Turin Turambar was tragic, Turins I&II were stewards in Gondor.

Eomer was just Eomer Eadig, King of Rohan.

Sophia

AAAH DRAT! please disregard this post, I got one thing in common confused with odd man out.

They all came to aid a friend or people who were friendly towards them

Beren Attacked the dwarfs because they killed Thingol and to (I think) prevent them from doing more damage in Doriath;
Turin Killed Glaurung and so prevent him from destroying Brethil;
Aragorn came to the aid of Minas Tirith;
Eomer came to the aid of Minas Tirith;
Turgon Came in what looked as a decisive moment to the aid of Finrod and co;

Beren with Luthien
Aragorn with Gandalf
Turgon with Finrod
Turin with Beleg
Merry with Pippen
Eormer with?? Don’t know, but he was a likeable person so I think he must had some friends who would enjoy camping with him [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Is it that they are all war veterans?

Beren-fought with the dwarves at Sarn Athrad.
Turin-he fought with a bunch of orcs I'm guessing.
Aragorn-Helm's Deep, Minas Tirith, in front of the black gate(would that be 2nd Battle of Dagorlad?)
Eomer-same as Aragorn.
Turgon-died at the battle at Gondolin.
Merry-2nd battle of Dagorlad with Aragorn
Pippen-Minas Tirith

They all had hereditary authority over people?
Beren- would have been the leader of Barahir's people if any had been left
Turin- would have been Lord of Dor-Lomin
Aragorn- was King of Gondor and Arnor
Eomer- was King of Rohan
Turgon- was King of Gondolin and a prince of the Noldoli
Merry- was Master of Buckland
Pippin- was Thain of the Shire
Elros- was King of Numenor
Luthien- was the daughter of Thingol and barring exceptional circumstances (which happened) she probably should have inherited his kingdom... (ooh, it's a stretch...)
Amroth- was Lord of Lorien

*grimaces* that's messy. Best I can do.

Maybe swimming is the answer or water.
Beren went over the sea when he died
Turin brother of Nienor who jumped in the water and died.
Aragorn came to the rescue with his ships
Eomer married a princes of dol amroth (dol amroth lay by the sea and they had a crest with a silver swan on it)
Turgon was ordered by Ulmo to make a armor and so
Merry and Pippen had a Ent drink and with made them grow
Elros went to Numenor over the sea by ship
Luthien came to reclaim Beren in Valinor so she could marry him
Amroth did go for a swim and was never seen again.
