Hey, at least I got a T-Shirt!
Miss Melilot Brandybuck is a Hobbit of the Shire (actually of Buckland). She is a spritely dancer and lover of music. Her family has one of the best mushroom farms in the Shire.
Melilot is a distant relation of Meriadoc Brandybuck. His great-grandfather, Gorbadoc, and Meli's great-grandfather, Orgulas, were brothers. Frodo's mother, Primula Brandybuck, and Melilot's grandfather, Gorbulas, were first cousins.
Melilot's father is Marmadas Brandybuck. Her older siblings are Merimas, her brother, and Mentha, her sister. Meli is closer to her other two sisters, Amaranth (Mari) and Tansy Pennyroyal. Amaranth and Tansy Pennyroyal are talented siblings who play musical instruments. All Meli can do is dance. Together, the three Brandybuck sisters like to have quiet little adventures and have even been as far away as Bree.
Here is my name in the fine script of the Elves:
Thank you Mari!
In the The One Ring Novel:
I am Melilot Brandybuck, a Hobbit of Buckland
In the New Tales From Middle Earth
I am Melilot, a Fallohide hobbit from Staddle in Bree-land. I was born in Staddle in TA 1561. Now it is TA 1601. After much agonizing, I have decided to leave all that I know and join other adventurous hobbits in founding the Shire. Settling a new land has been very hard, especially for a timid soul like me, but it has been the adventure of a lifetime. I am joined in this adventure by my family, especially my sisters, Amaranth and Tansy.
