Grandfather of Bilbo and great-grandfather of Frodo.²----²* BadassFamily: Clan-leader of an uncharacteristically adventurous hobbit family, he's Bilbo's grandfather.²* TheClan: The head of it, in fact.²* CreatorCameo: Played by Weta's Dan Hennah.²* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: No one calls him Gerontius, just The Old Took.²* GagNose: Sports the most ridiculously extreme nose in the movie -- the special features reveal Peter Jackson did this deliberately as a joke on Dan Hennah.²* HappyFlashback: He appears in a very sweet scene added to special edition of ''An Expected Journey'', which depicts a typically merry hobbit gathering.²* PosthumousCharacter: He's deceased long before ''The Hobbit'' takes place, at least by several decades.²* SpellMyNameWithAThe: A non-malevolent example, used out of respect.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Belladonna Took]]²!!Belladonna Took²[[quoteright:350:]]²²->'''Portrayed By:''' Sonia Forbes-Adam²²One of the Old Took's four daughters and Bilbo's mother.²----²* FloralThemeNaming: Like most female hobbits, she's named after a flower. Despite the negative connotations of "deadly nightshade", the name is derived from the Italian for "beautiful woman".²* GoodParents: By all accounts, Bungo and Belladonna were very loving and attentive parents who raised Bilbo to be a strong-minded and compassionate person. Her willingness to accept a little bit of adventure in life also contributed to Bilbo's curiosity and thirst for exploration, something that Belladonna actively nurtured in him.²* HappyFlashback: Appears in the above mentioned flashback, where we see her gently admonish a very young Bilbo after he whacks Gandalf with his wooden sword. It's a sweet cameo, and nice to see she and Bilbo together in less troubled times.²* PosthumousCharacter: Whilst she appears in the flashback, mentioned above, by the time of the events depicted in the main story, she has been dead for around ten years.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Lobelia Sackville-Baggins]]²!!Lobelia Sackville-Baggins²[[quoteright:216:]]²[[caption-width-right:216:''"Who are you??"'']]²²->'''Portrayed By:''' Erin Banks²²A rather unpleasant but very wealthy hobbit whose family has a rocky history with the Bagginses of Bag End. Wife of Otho Sackville-Baggins.²----²* BlatantLies: She pretended not to know who Bilbo was when he returned to Bag End to try and avoid the auction over his estate being broken up.²* FeudingFamilies: Aggressively pushes her husband to usurp his cousin, Bilbo, for leadership of the Baggins clan.²* FloralThemeNaming: Like most female hobbits, she's named after a flower. Applicably, the lobelia symbolizes malevolence and ill will.²* NosyNeighbor: She's known to constantly pry into Bilbo's affairs.²* PimpedOutDress: Costume designer Ann Maskrey describes her as being "decked out like an old traveller's caravan." She's on the right, [[ here with Otho.]]²* ParasolOfPrettiness: She carries a dainty parasol, similarly fussy as her dress.²* PreppyName: The name Sackville was a familiar "aristocratic" name in Tolkien's day, especially in double-barreled names such as Sackville-West, and he presumably used it (and the contrast with the more mundane Baggins) to imply the somewhat snobbish nature of the Sackville-Bagginses.²* RichBitch: In ''An Unexpected Journey'', she appears in a neat cameo, prissily tottering over Hobbiton Bridge in a PimpedOutDress, whilst making sure she shoots her cousin-in-law Bilbo a decidedly shitty look.²* StickyFingers: She's not above pinching silverware from relatives, as Bilbo explains, but probably justifies it as [[KarmicThief karmic theft,]] given that she also sees Bag-End as her rightful inheritance...²** In ''Battle of the Five Armies'', [[spoiler:she tries to steal Bilbo's silverware with him presumed dead.]]²* TimeshiftedActor: In ''Fellowship'', her older self (aged around 83) is played by Peter Jackson regular Elizabeth Moody, AKA Lionel's mother from ''{{Film/Braindead}}''. In ''An Unexpected Journey'', she's around 23.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Otho Sackville-Baggins]]²!!Otho Sackville-Baggins²²->'''Portrayed By:''' Brian Hotter²²Another wealthy but rather unpleasant hobbit; husband of Lobelia Sackville-Baggins.²----²* FeudingFamilies: He's Bilbo's first-cousin and closest living heir, and therefore, his ambition was to succeed Bilbo as head of the Baggins family and be head of two families at once. Bilbo thwarts this by officially naming Frodo as the heir to Bag End.²* HenpeckedHusband: Lobelia is quite obviously the one who rules the roost in the Sackville-Baggins family.²* PreppyName: Though his father was a Baggins, he inherited headship of the Sackville family through his mother, Camellia. Thus, Otho effectively founded a new family.²* TimeshiftedActor: He appears in ''Fellowship'' at the venerable age of 91, but in ''An Unexpected Journey'', he's around 30.²[[/folder]]²²%%[[folder:Old Gammidge]]²%%!!Old Gammidge²%%[[/folder]]²²%%[[folder:Old Hob]]²%%!!Old Hob²%%[[/folder]]²²-----
