While the Fellowship took of from Rivendell Peregrin Took was in his teens, so he was not the most trust worthy companion to be with on the journey. Pippin was nearly denied escorting Frodo with the Fellowship, but Gandalf approved of his courage. After the Fellowship had broken up Pippin and his bestfriend Merry were captured by Saurons minions known as Uruk-hai.
Peregrin was the only son of Paladin Took. However Peregrin had three older sisters.
Peregrin didn't carry very strong weapons with him, he had a very small and blunt sword which did hardly any damage to the enemies he hit. When he was in a battle however Peregrin was equiped with some very heavy armour for his small body.
