I am a HUGE Tolkien fan! You just asked me to describe Frodo, that's really DEEP for a Tolkien fan, and can't be said in a few words:

Frodo Baggins, a Hobbit of the Shire, became one of the most legendary figures in the history of Middle-earth when he undertook the quest to destroy Sauron's Ring of Power in order to bring about the Dark Lord's downfall. Frodo bore the Ring deep into Mordor despite great hardship and personal sacrifice, proving himself to be a hero of equal stature to the greatest warrior.

Frodo was born on September 22, 2968, to Drogo Baggins and Primula Brandybuck Baggins. He spent much of his youth at Brandy Hall in Buckland, the home of his mother's people. He was considered something of a rascal, particularly by Farmer Maggot from whom Frodo stole mushrooms. In 2980, when Frodo was still a child, his parents took a boat out onto the Brandywine River and were drowned. Frodo had no siblings, so he was left alone in the crowded tunnels of Brandy Hall until his cousin Bilbo Baggins adopted him and made Frodo his heir.

Bilbo and Frodo shared a birthday - September 22 - and they enjoyed throwing grand parties to celebrate. In 3001, when Bilbo turned 111 and Frodo came of age at 33, they gave a party of special magnificence. At this party, Bilbo announced his intention to leave the Shire and vanished (with the help of his magic ring) much to the consternation of his guests. Frodo inherited Bag End and most of Bilbo's possessions, including the magic ring.

As the years passed, Frodo seemed to stop aging and appeared at age 50 like a robust Hobbit just out of his tweens. Frodo was red-cheeked and rather stout, but taller and fairer than most Hobbits, with brown hair, bright eyes.

Frodo soon began to grow restless with his quiet life in Shire. On April 12, 3018, Gandalf arrived and told Frodo that the magic ring Bilbo had found in Gollum's cave was in fact the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron, who needed the Ring's power to take over Middle-earth. Frodo was shocked and dismayed by this news, but he realized that in order to save the Shire he loved, he needed to take the Ring far away.

Frodo intended to travel to Rivendell accompanied by his gardener Sam Gamgee. He sold Bag End to Lobelia Sackville-Baggins on the pretense that his money was running out and he was moving to a smaller residence at Crickhollow in Buckland. Frodo set out on his journey on September 23, the day after his fiftieth birthday.
In the Woody End, the Hobbits hid from a strange Black Rider who appeared to be seeking something. Frodo felt a desire to put on the Ring, but he did not do so. On the second occasion, the Black Rider was disturbed the the appearance of a party of Elves passing through the Shire, singing as they went. Gildor Inglorion, the leader of the Elves, invited the Hobbits to spend the night in their company. Gildor praised Frodo on his knowledge of Elvish and named him Elf-friend. He advised Frodo to flee from the Black Riders and to continue on his journey with haste and with friends that he could trust.

In the Marish, Frodo met Farmer Maggot for the first time in many years. Frodo was relieved to discover that the farmer and his dogs bore him no ill will, but he was troubled to learn that a Black Rider had stopped at Maggot's farm looking for him.

At Crickhollow, Frodo's friends Merry Brandybuck and Pippin Took surprised him with their knowledge of his quest and their intention to come with him. Frodo was reluctant to lead his young friends into danger, but he recalled Gildor's advice and accepted their offer. The Hobbits set out at dawn the next day.

The four Hobbits continued on to the Prancing Pony in Bree. In the inn's Common Room Frodo was approached by a Ranger called Strider, who warned him that Pippin's careless tales about Bilbo's Farewell Party could lead to trouble. Frodo tried to distract the crowd by jumping onto a table and singing, but he fell and the Ring slipped onto his finger causing him to disappear. The people in the Common Room were astounded, and one Man named Bill Ferny gave Frodo a knowing look before leaving the inn with a squint-eyed Man of the South. Frodo and his friends retreated to their parlour.

There they found that Strider had followed them. The Ranger offered Frodo his protection and guidance, and then the innkeeper Barliman Butterbur produced a letter from Gandalf which he had forgotten to send to Frodo three months earlier. The letter revealed that Strider was a friend of Gandalf and that his real name was Aragorn. Frodo accepted Strider's help.

The inn was attacked during the night, but the Hobbits remained unharmed hidden by Strider. Strider led the Hobbits into the Wild to Weathertop, where they were attacked by five Ringwraiths on October 6. In their presence, Frodo succumbed to the overwhelming temptation to put on the Ring, but he resisted their attempt to take him by drawing his sword and invoking the name of Elbereth Gilthoniel, one of the Valar. The Witch-king, Lord of the Ringwraiths, stabbed Frodo in the shoulder, but Frodo's defiance and the appearance of Strider armed with flaming brands drove the Ringwraiths away.
Frodo's wound appeared small, but the tip of the Witch-king's Morgul-knife remained in his body working its way toward his heart. Frodo became gravely ill as the Ringwraiths continued to pursue them. They were met by the Elf-lord Glorfindel, who set Frodo upon his horse Asfaloth. As the Ringwraiths drew near, Asfaloth carried Frodo toward the Ford of Bruinen and the safety of Rivendell beyond. Once across the Ford, Frodo turned and saw the Nine Ringwraiths on the other side. They commanded him to give up the Ring, but Frodo refused. The Ringwraiths were then swept away by a flood created by Elrond and Gandalf.

Frodo awoke in Rivendell on October 24 and was surprised to find Gandalf at his bedside. Frodo had been healed by Lord Elrond, though the wound continued to trouble him for as long as he remained in Middle-earth. He was reunited with Sam and Merry and Pippin and was overjoyed to learn that Bilbo was now living at Rivendell.

On October 25, Frodo was summoned to a Council called by Elrond to determine what should be done with the Ring. Frodo hoped his task was complete, but he realized that this was not to be, and he volunteered to take the Ring to Mordor to destroy it.

A great dread fell on him, as if he was awaiting the pronouncement of some doom that he had long foreseen and vainly hoped might after all never be spoken. An overwhelming longing to rest and remain at peace by Bilbo's side in Rivendell filled all his heart. At last with an effort he spoke, and wondered to hear his own words, as if some other will was using his small voice.
"I will take the Ring," he said, "though I do not know the way."
The Fellowship of the Ring: "The Council of Elrond," p. 284
Eight companions were chosen to accompany Frodo: Sam, Merry, Pippin, Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, and Boromir of Gondor. Bilbo gave Frodo his sword Sting and his coat of mithril mail and on December 25, the Fellowship of the Ring left Rivendell and headed south.The Fellowship continued on to the Bridge of Khazad-dum. There, Frodo's friend and mentor Gandalf fell into shadow while confronting a Balrog.

The bereaved Fellowship continued to Lothlorien, home of the Lady Galadriel. Galadriel tested Frodo's resolve by offering him a look into her Mirror. In his vision, Frodo saw an old man who resembled Gandalf but was clad in white; Bilbo pacing in his room at Rivendell; the Sea; a white seven-tiered city and a ship with black sails and a banner bearing the emblem of the White Tree of Gondor; a grey ship sailing off into the mists; and finally, Frodo saw the Eye of Sauron searching for him.

Galadriel revealed that she was the bearer of the Elven-ring Nenya and that should the One Ring be destroyed, the Three Rings of the Elves might lose their power. Frodo offered the One Ring to Galadriel, but she resisted the temptation and commended Frodo for responding to her test by testing her own resolve. Galadriel's gift to Frodo on his departure was a Phial filled with the light of the star Earendil.

The Fellowship traveled south to Amon Hen. There Boromir tried to convince Frodo to bring the Ring to Gondor. When Frodo refused, Boromir tried to take it from him by force. Frodo put on the Ring and escaped to the Seat of Seeing, where he saw war brewing everywhere and the Eye of Sauron searching for him.

He heard himself crying out: Never, never! Or was it: Verily I come, I come to you? He could not tell. Then as a flash from some other point of power there came to his mind another thought: Take it off! Take it off! Fool, take it off! Take off the Ring!
The two powers strove in him. For a moment, perfectly balanced between their piercing points, he writhed, tormented. Suddenly he was aware of himself again. Frodo, neither the Voice nor the Eye: free to choose, and with one remaining instant in which to do so. He took the Ring off his finger.
The Fellowship of the Ring: "The Breaking of the Fellowship," p. 417

At this moment, Frodo resolved to go to Mordor alone without telling his companions. But he did not find it so easy to leave Sam behind; his faithful servant caught up with him and insisted on coming with him.
Across the Anduin in the Emyn Muil, Frodo encountered Gollum, who had followed him from Moria. When he saw the miserable creature, Frodo felt pity at what the Ring had done to him, and he recognized in Gollum what he himself might yet become. And so, although Frodo had once told Gandalf that he wished Bilbo had killed Gollum, Frodo spared his life. This act of mercy, more than any other single act after Frodo's acceptance of the burden of the Ring, allowed the quest to succeed.

Gollum guided Frodo and Sam through the Dead Marshes. Frodo was entranced by the dead faces in the mere and had to be urged away by Sam. As they drew nearer to Mordor, Frodo began to feel the weight of the Ring increase. Worse still was the sense that the Eye was ever-present, seeking a way through his frail defenses.

The Hobbits reached the Black Gate and saw that it was guarded and impassable, but Frodo was determined.

Gollum begged Frodo not to go and then said that he knew a secret way into Mordor. After much thought, Frodo accepted Gollum's guidance. Frodo recognized that the creature's fate was tied to the Ring and to his quest. But he warned Gollum that the Ring was treacherous and would try to twist his promise and could betray him in the end. Frodo said that if necessary he would put on the Ring and Gollum would be unable to resist any command he gave.
Gollum led them south throuth Ithilien, where the Hobbits met Faramir, brother of Boromir. Faramir learned that Frodo bore the One Ring but vowed that he would not take the Ring from him and instead promised to help Frodo on his way. Gollum was found lurking by the Forbidden Pool and Frodo begged Faramir to spare Gollum's life, but Gollum thought that Frodo had betrayed him by allowing him to be captured.

The Hobbits parted company with Faramir and continued toward Mordor with Gollum as their guide. As they passed Minas Morgul, Frodo saw the Witch-king leading a great army. Frodo felt as if some outside force was compelling him to put on the Ring, but he resisted, and instead he reached for the Phial of Galadriel.

Gollum led the Hobbits to his secret passage, which turned out to be the lair of the Great Spider Shelob. Frodo used the Phial of Galadriel and Sting to evade Shelob but she pursued him and stung him in the neck, paralyzing him with her poison. Believing Frodo to be dead, Sam chose to continue the quest alone.

As Frodo and Sam crossed the Plain of Gorgoroth heading for Mount Doom, Frodo could feel the weight of the Ring dragging on him and his mind became wholly consumed by his burden.

At last, when Frodo could no longer walk, Sam carried him up the slopes of Mount Doom. Gollum attacked them suddenly, but Frodo fought back with surprising fury to prevent the Ring from being taken from him, and he cast Gollum down.
Frodo continued up the mountain to Sammath Naur, wherein lay the Cracks of Doom. There, at the end of his quest, after resisting the will of the Ring for so long through terrible hardships, Frodo was unable to resist any longer. He claimed the Ring as his own and refused to destroy it. Then Gollum, whose life Frodo had spared out of pity, attacked Frodo and bit off the finger that bore the Ring. Gollum fell into the fiery chasm and the Ring was destroyed.

Frodo and Sam were rescued from the destruction of Mordor by Gandalf and the Eagles and their wounds were tended to by Aragorn. They were honored as heroes by the Host of the West. At Aragorn's coronation, Frodo carried the Crown of Gondor. Queen Arwen gave Frodo a white jewel to bring him comfort when his wounds and memories troubled him, and she told him that if he could bear it no longer he could take her place on the ship bearing the Elves away from Middle-earth.

The Hobbits returned home and discovered that the Shire had been taken over by rough Men apparently at the command of their Chief, Lotho Sackville-Baggins. While his three companions rallied their fellow Hobbits to drive out the invaders, Frodo's primary concern was to prevent the killing of any Hobbits. At the Battle of Bywater, Frodo did not draw his sword, and he made sure that those who surrendered were not killed.

At Bag End, Frodo found that the Wizard Saruman was the real Chief. Frodo had hoped to save Lotho, for he realized that Lotho had been tricked by Saruman's agents, but Lotho was dead. Frodo declared that Saruman's life should be spared, even after the Wizard tried to stab him. Saruman said that Frodo had grown, calling him wise and cruel to leave him indebted to his mercy. As Saruman left Bag End, he was slain by his lackey Grima.

Frodo agreed to be Deputy Mayor while Will Whitfoot recovered from his imprisonment in the Lockholes. His only act was to return the Shirriffs to their previous number and functions. Frodo's main occupation during this time seems to have been adding his account of the War of the Ring to the Red Book begun by Bilbo.

While his three companions were able to return to their former lives and were hailed as heroes, Frodo could not find peace in the Shire or acceptance by his fellow Hobbits. Physically, he had changed. He was no longer the stout, red-cheeked Hobbit who had set out from the Shire the year before. Both Gandalf and Sam had perceived a clear light shining faintly within Frodo, and to Sam Frodo's face had become "old and beautiful, as if the chiselling of the shaping years was now revealed in many fine lines that had before been hidden, though the identity of the face was not changed." (TTT, p. 260)

Frodo became ill on the anniversaries of his encounters with the Witch-king and Shelob. He was, as he put it, "wounded with knife, sting, and tooth, and a long burden." (RotK, p. 268) A worse burden was the guilt Frodo felt for not being able to destroy the Ring and the desire he still felt for the Ring. "It is gone for ever, and now all is dark and empty," he said during one of his periods of illness. (RotK, p. 304)

At last, Frodo decided that the only way he could find healing was to leave Middle-earth forever.

"But," said Sam, and tears started in his eyes, "I thought you were going to enjoy the Shire, too. for years and years, after all you have done."
"So I thought too, once. But I have been too deeply hurt, Sam. I tried to save the Shire, and it has been saved, but not for me. It must often be so, Sam, when things are in danger: some one has to give them up, lose them, so that others may keep them."
The Return of the King: "The Grey Havens," p. 209
On September 29, 3021, Frodo came to the Grey Havens accompanied by Sam. Merry and Pippin were there to meet them. Frodo said goodbye to his three friends and boarded a ship with Bilbo and the bearers of the Three Elven-rings: Gandalf, Galadriel and Elrond. The ship set sail to the Undying Lands.
The Undying Lands were across the Sea to the west of Middle-earth. The spirits called the Valar dwelled there as did many Elves. Mortals were not normally allowed to go to the Undying Lands, but because of the great burden they had borne, Frodo and Bilbo were given special permission. Galadriel had made a special prayer to the Valar that Frodo be allowed to pass into the West, and Arwen also asked Gandalf, as an emissary of the Valar, to intercede on Frodo's behalf.

Although Frodo's ultimate fate is not recorded, it is believed that he lived out the rest of his days on Tol Eressea - an island off the coast of the main continent of Aman where Valinor was located. There Frodo may have finally found the peace and healing he sought.

Frodo was mortal and he remained so. He eventually died, though the year of his death is not recorded. Sam Gamgee, the last of the Ring-bearers, was allowed to sail to the Undying Lands in the year 61 of the Fourth Age, and it is hoped that these two great friends were reunited one last time before they died.

I also think he's adorable.
