understanding the races of middle earth via their most prominent character flaws.
My only criticism with this is Hobbits not having capitalism when they literally auctioned off Bilbo’s stuff when they thought he died.
other races can be capable of capitalism just as multiple races can be capable of being sneaky, condescending, or over-dramatic, but dwarves and men probably invented it.
Pretty sure dwarves are as obsessed with genealogy as anyone, though.
We know the name of Eomer’s wife’s great-grandfather. We know the names of all eleven of Pippin’s great-grandfather’s siblings. Arwen’s great-great grandfather’s brother was named Elmo. Compare that to the Dwarves. Who is Fili and Kili’s dad? Gimli’s mom? Dwarven interest in genealogy ends after the question “are you in line for the throne or nah?”
