A Bobbit horsemaster, from Ultima III manual.
|First appearance:||Ultima I|
|Last appearance:||Ultima III|
The diminutive Bobbits were once counted alongside the races of dwarves and elves as familiar sights in old Sosaria. Although somewhat slower to act than their brethren, they possessed a great deal of natural insight, often leading them down more contemplative career paths.
All Bobbits vanished from the lands of Sosaria after Ultima III, apparently victims of the massive cataclysm that forever altered the landscape.
A small and gentle race, the Sosarian bobbits are believed to have come to our Realm from a distant place. They are said to favour mountainside meadows and the serenity of forest clearings. Their diminutive height being even less than that of a dwarf, they shun any task that involves hard, physical labour, preferring instead to pursuits of study and contemplation. Bobbits are naturally weak, yet possess a serenity indicative of profound wisdom.
- Bobbits were clearly inspired by Hobbits, from the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. They were called Hobbits in the original Ultima I for Apple II.
