Born in TA 2950, Lotho was known to be a unpopular hobbit and several families considered him to be more greedy than his parents. Many hobbits would call him Pimple, due to his complexion and perhaps facial blemishes. After buying his own house, Lotho inherited pipe-weed plantations in the Southfarthing, selling the pipe-weed to people away south. He continued to sell pipe-weed to several Human men and women that were known as the Ruffians. The more fire-weed he sold, the more richer and powerful he would become.
Becoming a loyal member of the Ruffians in the year TA 2990, Lotho began to to use the proceeds to buy land and property all over the Shire in order to control it. He led the Ruffians to control and supress the people. With their help, he deposed the rightful Mayor of the Shire, Will Whitfoot, and imprisoned him in the "Lockholes," naming himself Chief Shirriff, or simply Chief. Lotho continued ordering, industrialising and controlling the Shire's life until Gandalf the Grey arrived in the Shire a month later to put an end to this.
During the Battle of Bywater, Lotho considered himself a coward since he was not a skillful fighter and planned on running away. He returned to his house and packed up a lot of gold in order to flee the Shire. However, before he could escape, he was killed by one of the Ruffians that betrayed him, and his death was mourned by his parents.
