Figwit lives!

Every fantasy or sci-fi blockbuster seems to have a group of rabid fans who deliberately obsess about the movie's most insignificant character.
Star Wars aficionados revere the irrelevant Boba Fett. The Wierzbowski Hunters find every frame in "Aliens" showing the obscure Pvt. Wierzbowski before he gets killed. Trekkies speculate about Morn, the taciturn alien barfly in "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine".
Now, a new unknown joins the ranks of unsung heroes: Figwit, a silent member of the Council of Elrond in "Lord of the Rings". The made-up name Figwit say his "discoverers", stands for "Frodo is grea.. WHO is THAT?!"
