In 1937 J. R. R. Tolkien published the fantasy novel The Hobbit, whose plot centers on a group consisting of the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins, the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves who go in search of a treasure guarded by the dragon, Smaug. During the course of their travels, they enter the black forest of Mirkwood, where they find themselves in the dungeons of the Silvan Elves. During the climactic Battle of Five Armies at the end of the story, the dwarves, men and elves band together to fight an army of goblins and wargs.

Although the character Tauriel does not appear in this story, she was created to be the head of the Elven guard by Peter Jackson and his wife and producing partner Fran Walsh for their multi-film adaptation. A Woodland Elf, her name means "Daughter of Mirkwood".


She has a special elven hair piece, that is auburn and includes ears. She has a specially printed green torso and legs, made to look like an elven outfit. She also has a unique face.
