Thelgor was a warrior born. He came to Middle-Earth shortly before Boromir did. He trained with Boromir and they quickly became quick friends and together were unstoppable on the battlefield. When Boromir asked his father, Denethor the Steward of Gondor that Thelgor should become a captain as great as he is, Denethor declined until the War of the Ring began and he was made commander of the Fountain Guard. During the battle of Osgiliath, he let out a fierce battle cry which scared the orcs away from crossing the west bridge before he, Boromir, and other nobles of Gondor destroyed it
Sample RP: The Battle for Osgiliath
The hundreds upon hundreds of orcs began their assault upon the west bridge in the ruins of Gondor's capital, Osgiliath. The orc leader pressed onward, blowing a terrible orcish horn and waved Great Eye banner.
One man, only one stood in the orcs way across the bridge. But this was not any man, this was Thelgor, Lord of the Tower Guard. With his sword and shield at hand, Thelgor began taunting the orcs of Mordor in their own tongue. Enraged, many orcs fired arrows upon the man only to see their arrows be blocked by his mighty shield.
Eventually, the army began to march, and still Thelgor stood ready for battle. With a quick slash, Thelgor felled the Orc captain knocking him into the river below.
"Mordor will never triumph over the greater good of Gondor!" And after those words Thelgor let out a great cry that could be heard throughout the runied city of Osgiliath. The orcs anger quickly turned into fear and the hundreds fled to the western half of Osgiliath. Moments later, Boromir arrived with a few others and helped Thelgor push the hordes of Mordor back into the depths from which they came.
I'll start with the lethal killers here.
You can't start out in the army. And you can certainly not start out as a high-ranking officer. And armour is something you've got to earn after roleplaying a bit.
You actually can start out in an army, but yes, not as an officer and certainly not with other men under your command.
