Sméagol (later known as Gollum) is a character originating in J. R. R. Tolkien's novel The Hobbit and featured in his The Lord of the Rings series. He was originally a Hobbit corrupted by the influence of the One Ring.
Sméagol was a stoorish Hobbit and a close friend of Déagol, but when he found the ring in the water, Sméagol became insane and then brutally killed Déagol. As time passed, Sméagol slowly began to change into a kind of monstrous humanoid, forced to eat nothing but fish from the lake while hiding in the mountains.
