    Lobelia is a rather odd but interesting character. While one can’t really like her for being a greedy harridan, she also became a reformed character later on.
She was born a Bracegirdle of Hardbottle, but became a Sackvillle-Baggins when she married Otho. She was also the mother of Lotho
    Lobelia was infamous for her shrewish and greedy temperament, and was always plotting to take Bag End from Bilbo and Frodo. Her wish was fulfilled when Frodo sold Bag End to her when he left the Shire.
    When Saruman took control of the Shire, she was one of the few hobbits who defied the Chief’s Men. As a consequence, she was arrested and placed in the Lockhole. After her release, many of the hobbits cheered for her, respecting her courage. It was the first time she had ever been popular among the hobbits of the Shire.
However, she was devastated to know of her son’s death, so she returned possession of Bag End to Frodo, intending to live out her last days with her family. She also left her money to him when she died, wishing for the money to be used in helping homeless Hobbits from Lotho and Saruman’s control of the Shire.
