    could nominate anyone--real or made-up--to be my role model, I would choose Frodo Baggins. Frodo is the main character in Lord of the Rings; he’s a creature that is similar to a human: a hobbit (a short humanlike creature with extremely large and hairy feet.) The first reason I would choose Frodo to be my mentor is be because he is lighthearted and optimistic; in other words, Frodo Baggins is extremely kind. He sees beyond Gollum 's outer appearance--which most people would find provocative--and sees an opportunity to show someone kindness. Frodo agrees to let poor old Gollum tag along with him. Frodo’s optimistic ways were present when Sam said, “I’m not gonna lose you Mr. Frodo,” and Frodo replied, “I know Sam,” because Frodo knows Sam will always have his back. Frodo is also extremely affable, which explains how those who accompanied him seemed to adore him and care for him as much as they did. At the end of the movie, right after Frodo…

    at first glance Frodo does not seem to be the best person to carry the Ring, there is something special about him that makes him the perfect Ring-bearer. In the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring, Frodo can seem like a carefree hobbit, who would be unable to take on the serious task of being the Ring-bearer, due to him joking about using the Ring and going along with Bilbo tricking the Shire into thinking he disappeared, when in reality he used the Ring, which then made him invisible…

    Nevertheless, the ideal way to characterize Hobbits comes from Frodo’s cousin, Bilbo Baggins. While Bilbo is writing his book, he illustrates the life of Hobbits as creatures who prefer a harmonious life. For instance, Bilbo writes, “Hobbits must seem of little importance, being neither renowned as great warriors, nor counted among the very wise, but where our hearts truly lie is in peace and quiet” (Fellowship of the Ring). In other words, Hobbits do not yearn for adventure or glory. In fact,…
