Folco Boffin was a Hobbit who was born to Vigo Boffin and his unnamed wife.


Early lifeEdit

Born in 2978 3A, Folco grew up in the Shire and became a good friend to Frodo Baggins. He was very fond in of Bilbo Baggins and was often found going in and out of Bag End while it belonged to them.

Battle of BywaterEdit

During the Battle of Bywater, Folco was already twelve years old when the Hobbits were battling the Ruffians led by Bill Ruffin. His father Vigo was killed in the fight and Folco mourned his lost.

War of the RingEdit

After Bilbo's farewell party, he along with Meriadoc Brandybuck, Peregrin Took, Samwise Gamgee, and Fredegar Bolger helped Frodo to move from Bag End to his new home in Crickhollow in Buckland.

During the War of the Ring, Folco was among those that joined the Shire Company. After joining the company, Folco was given a Barrow-blade along with the rest of the Hobbits that prepared to journey south under the command of Mayor Will Whitfoot.

Days later, Folco and the whole Shire Company participated in the Battle of Pelennor Fields where they charged alongside the Lonely Army, Greenwood Army, and the Army of Dale against the Orcs that were retreating. He was very happy to unite with Pippin and Merry who fought in both armies against the enemy. He later volunteered in gathering the wounded and taking them to Minas Tirith to be healed.

He later traveled with the combined armies of the Free Alliance to prepare for one final strike against the Sauron's forces and give Frodo a chance to destroy the One Ring. Folco was seen riding on his pony and accompanied Aragorn and the members of the fellowship to the Black Gate. He was shocked when the Mouth of Sauron revealed Frodo's mithril vest. Since Aragorn refused to believe that Frodo wasn't dead, he led the armies of the Free Alliance to battle Mordor. Folco survived the battle and was happy to see Frodo and Sam alive when they were brought safely back to Minas Tirith. He later attended the coronation of Aragorn, becoming the High King of Gondor and Arnor.

Fourth AgeEdit

At the beginning of the Fourth Age, Folco returned home and lived the remainder of his life. In 10 4A, Folco was among those that accompanied Frodo, Gandalf, and Bilbo to Mithlond where they would say their goodbyes. One the first day of spring, Folco would venture to Gondor and explore the vast places in the land. He passed away on 65 4A.
