Peregrin Took, often called "Pippin", is found in Bilbo's Room in the Last Homely House, at the southern side of the ground floor. He has a +3 Hope aura.
- Son of Paladin Took II of Great Smials, and later Thain Peregrin I; he travelled with the Company of the Ring. With Meriadoc Brandybuck, he was separated from the Company at Parth Galen, and taken captive by Orcs. Escaping into Fangorn Forest, he saw the destruction of Isengard and travelled with Gandalf to Minas Tirith, where he became a bondsman of Steward Denethor II.
- Pippin, as Peregrin was universally known, was the youngest of Frodo's companions. He was only twenty-eight years old when he set out with Frodo and Sam from Bag End on the first part of their great journey, which was considered very young for a Hobbit. At first, he seemed to be rather unsuited to a long journey - through the early part of their travels, we see him regularly calling for rests or meals. As befitted the son of the Shire's Thain, though, he had a good general knowledge of that land and its people.
- After the War of the Ring --- Peregrin inherited the title Thain of the Shire in the year IV 14 (1434 by the Shire-reckoning). During his Thainship, he remained in close contact with Gondor, and built a library of great historical importance at Great Smials. The works he collected were mainly concerned with the history of Númenor and the Exiles after its Downfall, and so were of little interest to the Hobbits of the Shire, but were of great significance to the larger world. The "Tale of Years" was probably prepared at Great Smials, with help from Meriadoc Brandybuck. — lorebook
A new hobbit or man character will briefly meet Pippin, with Frodo and Sam, already in the first instance, on their way to Crickhollow in Buckland. Next encounter is in Bilbo's Room in Rivendell. Later in the Epic story-line Pippin will appear at yet other locations.
Much later Pippin also appears in a dream, in a quest instance which takes place at the banks of Anduin at the Gap of Rohan.
- "How did that barrel of pipe-weed come to be there, I wonder?"
- "Thanks again for that pouch of pipe-weed!"
- "Frodo needs dependable folk like us on this journey."
- "Well, we certainly wouldn't stand to be left behind!"
- "I hope Sam has packed enough food for this journey. Maybe we should remind him?"
After his adventures in Fangorn Forest, Pippin can be found at the gates of flooded Isengard, alongside Merry. He then moves to the foot of Orthanc were he finds a Palantír.
- "The look on your face is quite a thing to see, my confused friend! Welcome to Isengard! You have had a number of adventures, I expect, and would you believe that we have as well? We have all come a long way from Lothlórien, haven't we?"

- "Oh, Gandalf brought me here. I slept much of the way, but Shadowfax is the swiftest of his kind and he was at gallop for most of the journey. Why did we leave our friends behind? Well... Gandalf thought... he just thought I should see Minas Tirith, is all. The others had their own plans, and... you know. He's a Wizard."
