Isildur was my friend, before the Ring took him.
That much I know beyond all doubt. We drew swords together on more than one occasion, and he came to my defence when needed as I went to his, saving each other's lives without thought of fear, or anything save our affection for one another.
Isildur was not himself, after he took the Ring. It swallowed up everything he was and could have been, and that day, I looked into a void where I should have seen a friend.
For that alone, the Ring must be destroyed.
Isildur will be avenged.
