Merry is a fictional male Hobbit adventurer in the Lord of the Rings series. The character was portrayed on screen by Dominic Monaghan. His allegiance / loyalty is to The Fellowship of the Ring. Merry is a hobbit male character from Lord of the Rings whose full name is Meriadoc Brandybuck. He is aligned to the Fellowship, something that he didn't volunteer lightly to do. He is best friends with Peregrin -Pippin- Took and friends with Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee. Both Merry and Pippins are trouble makers. When Gandalf is putting on a fireworks spectacular for the Hobbits of the Shire, they spoil the spectacular by setting off a large Phoenix firework that destroys the festival.
Both Pippin and Merry unwittingly join the fellowship when they bang in Frodo Baggins and Sam in a large cornfield. From that moment on until Sam and Frodo break away from the others, they are part of the Fellowship, determined to destroy the One Ring. Merry and Pippin are as inseparable as Frodo and Sam are.
Merry and Pippins are inseparable up until they look at a sphere of Sauron. At that point, Gandalf separates the two remaining Fellowship hobbits. Merry stays with the army to fight, he assists Eowyn in the main fight in the middle of the Return of the King esp. when Eowyn confronts the Witch-King of Angmar.
