Frodo Baggins is a hobbit, a member of a diminutive minor race once spread throughout Eriador and the vales of Anduin, and now mostly concentrated in and around a quiet corner of Eriador known as "The Shire". He is the central character of The Lord of the Rings.

Frodo is the only son of Drogo Baggins and Primula Brandybuck, and the nephew of Bilbo Baggins. Frodo was born in Third Age 2968 on 22 September. In 2980, his parents died in a boating accident and he was adopted by his famous uncle, Bilbo, and went to live with him in the manor at Bag End. In 3001, when Bilbo left for Rivendell, Frodo inherited his possessions, including both Bag End and the One Ring.

In 3018, Gandalf arrived and advised Frodo to travel to Rivendell under the name of Mr. Underhill. Along the way, he was joined by Sam Gamgee, Merry Brandybuck, Pippin Took and Aragorn. He was nearly slain by the barrow-wight and the Lord of the Nazgul. At Rivendell, he volunteered to take up the Quest of the Ring, to destroy the Ring at Orodruin in Mordor. He was joined by Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, Boromir, Gimli, Legolas and Gandalf.

They travelled together until Boromir tried to take the ring near Rauros, when Frodo and Sam set out alone, pursued by Gollum. Frodo took the ring into Mordor, and was able to resist its growing power with the aid of the Phial given him by Galadriel. He was rescued by Sam from the giant spider, Shelob, and from orcs. On the slopes of Orodruin, Frodo was at last overcome by the Ring, and decided to use it's power to remake the world, but Gollum bit his finger off and fell into the magma at the Sammath Naur, destroying himself, the Ring and Sauron.

After the War of the Ring, Frodo, wounded in body and spirit, returned to The Shire and helped to take it away from the much-shrunken Saruman. For the six months, he was the mayor of Michel Delving. Unable to enjoy life with the pain of the Ring, Shelob's poison, and the morgul-knife, Frodo at last passed over the sea with the Last Riding of the Keepers of the Rings in 3021 at the age of fifty-three.

Frodo was a writer, and wrote the account of the War of the Ring and the Quest of the Fellowship in the Red Book of Westmarch. During the War of the Ring, he wore a shirt of mail which had been a gift to Bilbo from the dwarves of Erebor, the elven long dagger Sting, and the Phial of Galadriel, in addition to the One Ring.

The Phial was a crystal jar which contained water from Galadriel's spring. It caught and reflected the light of Earendil's star, which was the light of a Silmaril, which had caught the light of the Two Trees before the dawn of the First Age. It brought courage and light in the darkness.


1. Frodo's high CON and BOD scores are intended to reflect the basic toughness of hobbits.

2. His Deduction skill is meant to reflect that Frodo was thoughtful, and very insightful about everyone he met, as noted by Galadriel.

3. Frodo's AK: Eriador is not from travel, but from his ravenous appetite for stories from beyond the Shire.

4. This characterization is meant to represent Frodo as he leaves the Fellowship.

5. I have not made Frodo pay points for the One Ring, since it is as much a detriment as an asset.
