Out of all the people I thought might make a cameo in this comic which features events from my life, Aragorn (Elfstone, Elessar, Strider, etc. etc he has too many names) wasn't one of them.

There are a line of trees known as the White Tree in Tolkien's mythology, used as a symbol for the continuing line of kings. As one tree dies it is replaced by a seedling, until the third tree died with no successor (and at the same time the line of kings failed too.)
Aragorn, the rightful king, finds a sapling of the original tree and legitimises his claim to the throne.

There are seven saplings taken from MY tree,They're in Poland right now, but I hope that one day one will return back to the botanical gardens!

To make things a little easier to collate results between here, tumblr and tapastic, here's a handy dandy poll!

BOROMIR! Oh it's Aragorn. Ok, so not my number one favourite LotR character, but - Gondor, the White Tree - close enough. I shall let it pass, unlike a certain wizard.

I should try drawing Boromir some time! (And everyone else...) I love Sean Bean but he doesn't really match the way I imagined Boromir to look when I read the books.

The seven saplings even sounds like LoTR.
