Where do hobbits come from? Can't Post

and please nobody say “when a mummy hobbit and a daddy hobbit love eachother a lot...” What I’d like to know is who made the hobbits? Was it Eru, or some presumptious Vala? (It would have to be Tulkas then- I can see him creating a race of little, good natured people) Or are they the result of interbreeding between some other races? The thing is when treebeard includes them in his song about the races, it seems to imply that they have their own separate genesis. Thoughts, anyone?

    It does seem a bit uncharacteristic that Tolkien has no backstory for them (as far as I know).// noWizardme Send a private message to noWizardme Oct 21 2013, 8:24pm
