Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit. That means that he approximately three feet tall. He does not have a beard. he does have brown hair. He is fairly stout, especially before the start of his journey, although he slims down and gets a bit more muscular by the end. He has brown eyes, and generally appears cheerful. Hobbits' feet have leathery soles and are covered with brown curly hair; they often go barefoot. He is able to move silently, and is seen smoking a pipe when he can do so. His ears are slightly pointed.
