Merry, Sam, and Pippin now clothed themselves in spare garments from their packs; and they soon felt too hot, for they were obliged to put on some of the thicker and warmer things that they had brought against the oncoming of winter.
'Where does that other old animal, that Fatty Lumpkin, come from?' asked Frodo.

Introduction

Frodo Baggins, son of Drogo Baggins, was a Hobbit of the Shire in the Third Age. He was and is most renowned for his leading role in the Quest of the Ring in which he bore the One Ring to Mount Doom, where it was ultimately destroyed.

Samwise Gamgee, also known as Sam, was a Hobbit of the Shire. He was Frodo Baggins' gardener and best friend. Sam proved himself to be Frodo's closest and most dependable companion, the most loyal of the Fellowship of the Ring, and also played a necessary role in protecting Frodo and destroying the One Ring.

Peregrin Took, more commonly known as Pippin, was a Hobbit of the Shire, and one of Frodo Baggins's youngest but closest friends. He was a member of the Fellowship of the Ring.

Meriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck was a Hobbit and one of Frodo's cousins and closest friends. He loved boats and ponies and had a great interest in the maps of Middle-earth. He is also one of the nine companions in The Fellowship of the Ring.
