Gollum in the Art Style of Frank Frazetta
Gollum, also known as Sméagol, is a fictional character in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings series. He was once a hobbit-like creature from the river-folk, but his obsession with the One Ring corrupted him over time.
Gollum is depicted as a pitiful and tragic character, consumed by his desire for the Ring. He speaks in a unique and distinct manner, often referring to himself in the third person.
Despite his small size, Gollum is shown to be incredibly agile and stealthy, and his knowledge of the land and its dangers proves to be valuable to Frodo and Sam on their quest to destroy the Ring.
Gollum is a complex and divisive character in the series, with some readers sympathizing with his plight and others viewing him as a villainous figure. He has been portrayed in various film adaptations of the series, including the critically acclaimed portrayal by actor Andy Serkis in Peter Jackson's film trilogy.
