"Deep down here by the dark water lived old Gollum, a small slimy creature. I don't know where he came from, nor who or what he was. He was Gollum - as dark as darkness, except for two big round pale eyes in his thin face." - The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein
Once known as the hobbit Smeagol, Gollum is a creature that has been twisted and corrupted by the magic of The One Ring. Kept alive for centuries by the Ring's dark magic, Gollum lives quietly on a small island in the middle of an underground lake, feeding on fish and goblin warriors that stray too far from their stronghold, and guarding his "precious." When Bilbo Baggins stumbles upon Gollum's camp and takes the ring for himself, Gollum swears his revenge, crying out "Thief! Thief, Baggins! We hates it, we hates it, we hates it forever!" Ages 14 and up.
