Bilbo Baggins is a peaceful and domestic hobbit who enjoys living in his cozy hole in The Hill. His life is quite wonderful by hobbits' standards, which is to say, there is no excitement and there are plenty of meals each day. Bilbo is the only son of Belladonna Took and the Tooks are a wealthy family but Belladonna and a few of the others had adventurous streaks and they were not nearly as respectable as the Bagginses.

The dwarves are extroverted and love a party. They are congenial, wear different colored cloaks, enjoy Bilbo's food (overly much) and enjoy their drink as well. They sing, they clean, and they sing some more. Bilbo was transported (until he came back to himself); in awe of the dwarve's music, songs, and tales of adventure.
