Backing up from hobbits to do the last of the famous Fellowship trio, we're gonna tackle Aragorn, ranger of the north and the new king of Gondor.

I've also gone back and updated V as a Street Fighter rather than a Pulp Hero. It seemed appropriate, considering his enemy.

Prior to Return of the King, he possessed a Long Sword (Str+d8) and uses a Chainmail vest (Armor +2) at Helm's Deep.

The northern rangers are a withdrawn, secretive bunch. While they aren't hated, it is easy to distrust them from the stories that make their way south (Outsider). Living off the land, they also rarely keep gold on their person (Woodsman & Poverty). Aragorn himself is a battle-hardened veteran; over the years that he spent among both the elves and the rangers, he was taught both swordsmanship and expertise with a bow, as well as a little bit of elven magic to help calm beasts.

Aragorn is the only living descendant of Isildur, and as such is the one true king of Gondor. He tries to keep this on the down-low, but it really helps him talk his way out of things when he needs to. During the War of the Ring, he received an elven cloak and dagger at Lothlorien, but was later provided with Anduril, an elven-forged great sword from the shards of Narsil, indicating Aragorn's rightful place as the king of Gondor.

There's the quintessential ranger for you guys! Like Legolas, he's not nearly as XP-loaded as I was expecting, instead punching in at a pretty reasonable level. Leave questions, comments, and so forth below!
