For the characters in Tolkien's The Lord of The Rings, having friends along for the journey was necessary for survival. The friendship between Legolas and Gimli is characterized by shared suffering, unity through common virtues and focus, and intervention.  These hallmarks transformed the two as individuals and the world around them.
