Who Is Poppy Proudfellow
Poppy is a curious Harfoot, who ventures into the Shire from the North to the South, hoping to find the The Rings of Power. When she reaches the Prancing Pony Inn she meets Frodo Baggins and his friends Samwise and Pippin, who warn her not to follow them. She explains that she is looking for the rings and will keep following them until they give up or let her go with them.
Poppy is a curious Harfoot who set out to find the Rings of Power, with the help of Gandalf and Bilbo Baggins. The first ring that she discovers is the Ring of Prudence, which she manages to pick up just before Gollum finds it. The second ring she comes across is the Ring of Faithfulness, and her brother steals it from her. Finally, they come across the only ring remaining…the Ring of Courage.
Poppy is a curious, eager young harfoot who spends most of her time around the Prancing Pony. When Gandalf first arrives in Bree, she runs out to meet him and asks where he’s going with all his bags. After being told the Wizard is journeying south, she tells him she’ll show him the way to any place he might need to go.
In J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, each race in Middle-earth (humans, elves, dwarves) has a set of rings to choose from that signify what they can be trusted with – the set that contains their respective rings are given to them by Sauron, the evil mastermind behind this plan to regain control over Middle-earth.
So I’m currently reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy and I can’t help but wonder what a curious Harfoot would have been like. I imagine them to be like, um, well, a hobbit. They’d probably have blonde hair, green eyes and an inquisitive mind. Just because they’re curious doesn’t mean they aren’t brave!
I was born and raised in the peaceful, little village of Hobbleteeth. I spent my days exploring and playing with the other children there, climbing rocks by the river or playing games under our great tree on a hot summer day. I always thought that we were protected from any kind of darkness, no matter how close it came to us. That’s what life had been like up until now- simple. But then everything changed when we found out about The Ring of Power.
Poppy is an amazing character. She has so much courage and strength, and she goes through a lot throughout the story. But she never gives up hope, no matter how many obstacles she faces. Plus, she also has a great personality and will make you laugh. Even though her long backstory with Gandalf took a while to read through, I loved seeing how they both changed and grew over time. It was really interesting to get inside her head!
So, I read The Lord of the Rings because my family said it was great. They made me feel so dumb and uncultured that I had to prove them wrong. But to be honest, I didn’t care about elves or orcs or giants.
Poppy proudly carries a small blade, which she hides under her dress. It was given to her by one of her travelling companions, who had made it in their spare time while they walked together. This companion knew nothing about her fear, and in retrospect that probably says something about how little she trusts people. She learnt from them how to defend herself. But then, when they parted ways near Bree and looked back at each other through heart-wrenching tears, she thought maybe it was better this way.
Poppy Proudfold is a shy and curious young girl. When she goes to pick up her mail, she finds a package. It has no address or markings, but only the word handle with care. She brings it home where her parents tell her that it may be an undelivered gift from a friend. That night, they open the box to find gold rings that are inscribed with runes that don’t mean anything to them.
Humans are impatient and do not see a need to plan, saving up, or working hard. We will be totally fine if we wait a few years before doing anything. A mistake I made when starting my quest was that I underestimated how long it would take me to get everything I needed to find the rings of power.
