Ok, this may sound like a prank, or something similar, but I assure you, that it is not.

Anyways, I met an interesting character. I can't tell if it was drugs, or just that he was very decieved and delusional, or some combination of the two, but I think he really needs prayer. From what I could gather from his mostly incoherant word strings, is that he can't distinguish reality from fiction. He honestly thinks he is Noletari, the great grandson of Aragorn. Apparently he was choked from 5 feet away when he was 10 by Elrond, and he has had encounters, what he calls "flashbacks" to the Lord of the Rings world. He uses reality and LOTR interchangeably, at random, at least what I could tell of it, speaking of Satan and Eru. Just now, he may have let up a bit, and I may have a name, Nathan. I'm not sure what is causing this behavior, whether it is delusions or demonic attacks, but if you could please pray for him that would be a great help.

Sorry if that's not so much to go by, I have been speaking with him for over 4 hours, and that's all I got  Sad

Lord, have mercy.  

Have you ever seen the film "the Fisher King"?  That's what I thought of right away when I read your description of this fellow.
