Despite their natural smaller stature, Hobbits are extremely resilient humanoids who are often mistaken for human children. Over thousands of years, in the past,  they made several journeys westward until they reached the ever-popular Shire.

While they served other kings in the ages of the past, they are now ruled by their own kin, although the exact nature of how this is done is debatable depending on who you ask, though the important thing is that they can all live in peace as they like.

Hobbits are prone to mischief, often from an early age, and while most know where the line is some still cross it, and that often leads to doing things that make their names widely known, such as Dagobert Whitfoot, Tavia Tunnelly, and Obo Hogpen.
