Endless list of favorite characters: Smaug The Golden
"Revenge! Revenge! The King under the Mountain is dead and where are his kin that dare seek revenge? Girion Lord of Dale is dead, and I have eaten his kin like a wolf among sheep, and where are his son’s sons that dare approach me? I kill where I wish and none dare resist. I laid low the warriors of old and their like is not in the world today."
