Hobbits (Holbytlan)

 

Harfoots - The most numerous and typical of hobbit strains.  They are also the smallest, averaging between 3 and 3 and a half feet tall with curly brown hair.  They love hilly lands, and most commonly prefer to live in hobbit-holes, comfortable houses dug into the side of hills.  Unadventurous farming folk, they prefer sitting at home where nothing ever changes dramatically.  They are said to have been the first to cross the Misty Mountains into Eriador from where hobbits were first seen living in the Anduin valley.

 

Stoors - The most like the hobbits’ human cousins (ancestors?) in general build, and the tallest, Stoors are still only about 4 feet tall.  Some can even actually grow beards, unlike other hobbit types.  They like flatlands and boats, and are known as river people.  The Stoors never moved as far west as the Harfoots and Fallowhides, and they still live near rivers in the Hollin and Dunland regions, rather than in the Shire as other hobbit-folk do.

 

Fallohides - The least numerous of types.  Usually averaging around 3 and a half feet tall, or a little less, they are the thinnest of hobbits, some even almost delicately un-hobbit-like in appearance, and tend toward having darker, though still curly, hair and brighter-colored eyes than other strains.  They like the woods and wilder places, and are often the bards and poets of their race.  An energetic and fun-loving people, they are often full of mischief, and are looked down at by their Harfoot neighbors for sometimes actually even liking adventure and new things.  The Took family, from which both Peregrin Took and Frodo Baggins came, is a visible example of the Fallohide line.
