Aragorn had seen many dark acts in his life and heard of many more. But Gandalf’s tidings held a horror quite unique. Denethor had perished on a pyre and sought to immolate his son.

Faramir’s body was unscathed by flame, but his spirit was enmeshed in darkness, a gloom, which Aragorn feared might now be too thick to penetrate.

Determinedly he sought the young man, reaching out to him in the smouldering ruins of his world, seeking to overcome the fever that threatened to consume him.

Then Faramir awoke and smiled at him. The Phoenix had risen from the ashes.

The Prince of Ithilien, his smiling lady at his side, moved confidently amongst the guests, celebrating a peace treaty he had negotiated on his King’s behalf.

 Imrahil turned to the King. “It is good to see Faramir prosper after all he suffered, “ he said.

Aragorn smiled. “My Steward reminds me of a strange tale told in the East concerning the phoenix, a golden bird that burns itself on a pyre, then emerges from the flames reborn to soar aloft,” he said. “Faramir’s trials have given him a unique strength and wisdom that no other in my kingdom could match.”
