Gamling maybe, or possibly Grima (because of the secrets bit), but he didn't fight in the Battle of the Hornburg.

Silmaril

The first one could be Theoden or Eomer, or maybe Hama.
The second one is surely Eowyn, isnt it? But Faramir also comes to my mind...

Who else was even important in the battle of Helm's Deep (or of Pellanor Fields) that is close to those three?? Those are pretty much the only important Rohirrim I would think. You've really stumped us!

that's a nice reasoning...but for a hint:

the nine does not refer to what you suspect, and thirst is a metaphor [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Yes! Frodo it was [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I have a thirst that will remain unquenched
He will always long for the ring
and although years pass I am still reminded
His wound flares up on it's "birthday"
Only nine remain
Nine fingers
yet I am alone
Sam had Rosie, Merry & Pippin, Aragorn & Arwen, Legolas & Gimli...

Well, there you go. Sorry if it's vague. But, as my luck would have it, someone will get it right off.

No.

I have no idea who that even is, and after
looking it over I realize my question is incredibly vague. So, as a hint, the character is from Lord of the Rings. Well, the person could be mentioned in the other tales as well (I'm no expert on them), but the person IS in LOTR.

Oh, and all of those lines should not be taken literally. They may be symbolic or hinting at the truth, of course - poetic license.

My goodness! I just looked over it again. And it is impossible to figure out unless you happen to stumble upon my exact thought process. OK, the character is NOT a minor character in LOTR. That should help narrow the field.

Oh sure. My first riddle lasted a day. Maybe I shouldn't have given so many hints. Maybe it wasn't as vague as I thought. In any case, Manardariel has it. It was Arwen. And that was a wonderful explanation, too - nearly exactly how I thought of it. Good job.
