Though the Fellowship that set forth from Rivendell has dwindled to but three, still the friendship that bound these three held strong. Elf, Man, and Dwarf, Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli hold to each other through hardships and peril in spite of the differences that have estranged their kindred. Yet the greatest challenge of their trust in each other is to come at the entrance to the Paths of the Dead. This path is Aragorn's alone, and to it he is committed, but neither Legolas nor Gimli will permit him to go on without them. The bow of Legolas will be at Aragorn's side to whatever end.
