Character Role Analysis

Gandalf

He's old, he's wise, and the dude's got white hair. Sounds like a guide to Shmoop. Plus, there's the fact that his advice, council, perseverance, and general combat skills help guide the others to victory in Middle-earth. No wonder he sails West in the end. This guy clearly deserves a vacation.
