A Hobbit of the Shire, and the original adventurer from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings prelude, The Hobbit. Bilbo was drafted by Gandalf into joining a quest led by Thorin Oakenshield and his company of Dwarves to reclaim the lost kingdom of The Lonely Mountain. The story is told in The Hobbit, and it was during the course of this seminal quest that Bilbo found the One Ring, defeated Gollum, and in effect sparked the conflict that would later be told in the Lord of the Rings. Following the successful resolution of this quest, Bilbo returned to The Shire and retired to the life of a country gentleman until his nephew Frodo was old enough to inherit his estate. At that point Bilbo, now well into his senior years and feeling the restlessness that had been instilled in him by his experiences, decided to leave the Shire for the wild places he had come to love so well. After arranging the transfer of his worldly goods (including the Ring) to Frodo, Bilbo vanished from Hobbiton forever. It is notable that while Bilbo was enduring his quest in The Hobbit, the White Council under the guidance of Saruman and Gandalf was driving the mysterious Necromancer from his lair at Dol Guldur. The Necromancer would later be revealed to be Sauron, and following his eviction from Dol Guldur, he would re-surface in his old stronghold of Mordor. Sauron's re-emergence in Mordor and the finding of the One Ring by Bilbo were the two unrelated yet simultaneous events that directly sparked the conflict depicted in The Lord of the Rings.
