365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 319: Fredegar Bolger

Fredegar “Fatty” Bolger, son of Odovacar Bolger, was a distant relative and good friend of Frodo Baggins. Though, like most Hobbits, he was content living in the Shire and had no desire to leave, he did assist Frodo, concealing his departure from Crickhollow for as long as he could. When Lotho and Saruman took control of the Shire, he organised a rebel party in the Brockenborings, but was imprisoned in the Michel Delving Lockholes. Eventually he was released, but had been treated so harshly that he lost a great deal of weight – and his nickname of “Fatty.”
