Peregrin Took: Born to Paladin Took and Eglantine Banks in 2990 of the Third Age, he was the youngest of four, and the only boy. His sisters were Pearl, Pimpernel and Pervinca. He was more commonly known as Pippin.
He was the youngest of the hobbits in the Fellowship. At Parth Galen, he and Meriadoc were caputured by Orcs and were carried off. They managed to escape into Fangorn Forest, and there they met an Ent called Treebeard.
They were both there for the storming of Isengard, and when the palanír was thrown out the window, Pippin picked it up. It preyed on his mind, and he stole it from Gandalf to look into. After this, Gandalf took Pippin away with him to Minas Tirith. There, he became guard for the Steward Denethor.
He fought for the men, and was called 'Ernil i Pheriannath' (Prince of the Halflings) by the people of Minas Tirith.
After the War of the Ring and the Scouring of the Shire, he lived with Merry in the house at Crickhollow. He was considered a giant among hobbits now, because of the ent-draughts he had drunk with Treebeard.
