Beginning (Bilbo)

"He saw it all"

Hobbit-folk are quite fond of stories. However, they prefer to read them, not live through them, which is what one unfortunate Hobbit started, for his younger cousins to finish. Although one could say he also finished it. He was there, from the riddle game with that pitiful creature under the mountains to the council that sealed his cousin's fate, and there at the end when the poor young Hobbit came back, horrifically scarred in mind, and almost as much in body. He hated it, hated that it had been his fate to see it all. Yes, he saw it all.

Exactly 100 words. I don't know how many of these I'll end up writing, and prompts are very welcome (please use the formTheme, Character, "Prompt" i.e. Beginning, Bilbo, "He saw it all"). Any character is welcome, no matter how obscure (no OCs please). I'll only use each theme once, and I want to vary the characters so if you give me a character that I've already got one for, you'll have to wait a while for it.

Thanks for reading!
