A hobbit, h, is one of the monsters you will encounter a few floors down in the NetHack dungeon. They are usually - but not always - peaceful for lawful characters.

Hobbits will always be generated with one of a sling, a dagger, or an elven dagger, with an equal chance of receiving any of them. In addition, they have a 10% chance to receive an elven mithril coat, and a 10% chance to be given a dwarvish cloak.[1] They also enjoy collecting things off the floor, so one may frequently find other random items in their inventories.

Encyclopedia entry Edit

Hobbits are an unobtrusive but very ancient people, more
numerous formerly than they are today; for they love peace
and quiet and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-
farmed countryside was their favourite haunt. They do not
and did not understand or like machines more complicated
than a forge-bellows, a water-mill, or a handloom, although
they were skillful with tools. Even in ancient days they
were, as a rule, shy of "the Big Folk", as they call us, and
now they avoid us with dismay and are becoming hard to find.
