QUESTION:
Who is Gandalf and what is his purpose in the shire?
Gandalf is a known as the ‘Gandalf the Grey’ is a witty, full of charisma wizard of great skill and talent. His journey to She Shire is to collect ‘The Ring’, which is an artifact of great danger if it falls in the hand of the Evil Dark Lord, Sauron.
Why did Bilbo Baggins flee the shire?
