Frodo Baggins | Middle-Earth Character

Frodo Baggins

Ring-bearer, Elf-friend
a.k.a. Frodo of the Nine Fingers, Maura Labingi
The main hero of the epic. A carefree, genuine and kindhearted hobbit of the Shire. Living a serene and simple life until his well-known Uncle Bilbo handed him down the One Ring. This changes his life forever.

Frodo must now fulfill a perilous responsibility that only the Ring-bearer can accomplish- to destroy the One Ring by casting it into Mount Doom's mouth of fire from where it was crafted.

He must cross dangerous paths and encounter risky confrontations to reach Mordor before the forces of evil reach him, or worst, before the ring will successfully lure him into the darkness.
