Bilbo Baggins

From The Codex
I know you doubt me. I know you always have. And you're right, I often think of Bag End. I miss my books! And my armchair, and my garden. See, that's where I belong. That's home. And that's why I came back, because... you don't have one. A home. It was taken from you, and I will help you take it back if I can.
~ Bilbo Baggins to Thorin Oakenshield
I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
~ Bilbo Baggins to the citizens of Hobbiton

Background

Bilbo Baggins is a the main protagonist of The Hobbit and a secondary character in The Lord of the Rings. He is a Hobbit who lived in The Shire during the last years of the Third Age. Bilbo is most notable for being a key member of Thorin Oakenshield's company in the Quest of Erebor, as well as becoming one of the bearers of The One Ring of Sauron.

After assisting the company of Dwarves reclaim their home from Smaug, Bilbo returned to the Shire, and unknowingly carried along with him The One Ring that he'd stolen from Gollum. He later adopted his distant younger cousin, Frodo Baggins, and as per the request of Gandalf, relinquished the One Ring to him. As his age began to catch up to him, he retired to Rivendell to live with the Elves and write his books in peace.

Alignment: Neutral Good (Bilbo is a well-mannered Hobbit who deeply cares about a great many things. Though he can seem somewhat selfish in regards to his belongings, such as his books and garden, Bilbo would throw away a comfortable life in a second if it meant helping those he cares about. The fondness for the Dwarves that Bilbo developed, caused for him to risk his own life and abandon his selfish possessions in order to help reclaim their home. This sense of pity and selflessness is what allowed for him to give up The One Ring when Gandalf requested it of him), Chaotic Neutral when possessed by The One Ring (Those under the direct influence of The One Ring act as a man possessed, and will become entirely focused on it. They will lash out in anger if it is moved or threatened to be taken, and become overly worried if they happen to misplace it. People will sacrifice their own lives for the sake of owning The One Ring, due to Sauron's corruptive madness)

Equipment


  • Sting: Sting is an Elvish knife, likely made by Gondolin during the First Age. After a scuffle with a trio of trolls during the Quest of Erebor, Bilbo and the company of Dwarves gained access to the troll's cave. Within this cave was a pile of treasure plundered over the course of several years, which included this weapon. Due to its Elvish nature of glowing blue to warn of the presence of orcs and goblins, Bilbo claimed it as his own weapon. It later acquired the name "Sting" after Bilbo used it to slay an attacking spider. Once Bilbo retired to Rivendell, he passed this sword onto Frodo Baggins.
  • Mithril Coat: A small coat of mail made out of Mithril, a precious Dwarven metal which is highly prized for its strength, light weight, and malleability. This coat was retrieved from the hoard of Smaug after his defeat, and promptly gifted to Bilbo Baggins by Thorin Oakenshield as a sign of their friendship. Bilbo later passed the coat down to Frodo Baggins, once the quest to destroy the One Ring began. Due to the nature of Mithril, it has protected both Bilbo and Frodo's lives on many occasions.
  • The One Ring: An ancient artifact created by the Dark Lord, Sauron, in the Second Age. After the creation of the nineteen Rings gifted to the different races of Middle Earth, Sauron created one more in secret; One Ring to Rule Them All. This final Ring, also notably called the Ruling Ring or Isildur's Bane, has the ability to control all those who were gifted the other nineteen Rings. Though Sauron lost this Ring during his battle with the Last Alliance, his dark will had been poured into the object and would corrupt all those who possessed it. It drives the wielder insane, and will slowly corrupt their body.

Other

Standard Tactics: Bilbo is highly unexperienced in combat, though due to his Hobbitish nature he will be intelligent enough to stay on the defense, and attack with wild sword swings if the enemy makes any advance. Should Bilbo ever feel that his life is threatened, he will put on The One Ring in an attempt to create a far-off distracting noise, and either escape the battle, or use a sneak-attack.

Weaknesses: Bilbo has a fear of heights. Hobbits cannot survive long in snowy climates, nor are they able to swim. The One Ring will eventually corrupt any being if given enough time.
