Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took was a Hobbit of the Shire and the Hero of the Battle of Greenfields.


Early lifeEdit

Bandobras was born in TA 2704 to the Took family, and grew to be four foot, five inches tall, and was able to ride a horse instead of a pony.

Battle of GreenfieldsEdit

Bandobras gained fame for leading the Hobbits at the Battle of Greenfields in TA 2747 when Goblins from Mount Gram in the Misty Mountains invaded the Northfarthing. During the battle, Bandobras charged through the goblin armies and with his wooden club he knocked the goblin chieftain Golfimbul's head clean off, and sended it sailing a hundred yards through the air and down a rabbit-hole, thus led the Hobbits' victory of the battle and the invention of the game of Golf at the same time.

Death and legacyEdit

Bandobras died in TA 2806 at the age of 102, but his deed at the Battle of Greenfields became legend, and a portrait of him was hung at Bag End. In TA 2941, when Gandalf was trying to convince his descendant Bilbo of his Tookishness, he talked about Bandobras and his victory at the Battle of Greenfields, but Bilbo qualified this by suggesting that it was nothing more but an embellishment.
