Biography: A long time friend of Frodo Baggins, he
was, although not by the choice of Frodo at first, a companion on the road to
Rivendell. After the Council, Pippin was very adamant that he intended to join
the Fellowship, whether he had the approval of the Council or no. Though he
made two very crucial mistakes along the road, first tossing a stone into the
well in Moria, and second, looking into the Palantir, Pippin far surpassed
proving his worthiness. Notable deeds concerning Pippin's tale in LotR include,
aiding in the rousing of the Ents, and after travelling with Gandalf to Gondor,
offering his sword in service to the Steward of the city. In the final battle
of the War of the Ring, Pippin was narrowly saved by Gimli, when he was crushed
under the body of a mountain troll.
