A passion for gold
Smaug is the famous dragon occupying the Lonely Mountain, an ancient dwarf city in Tolkien’s famous novel The Hobbit as well as in its movie version. Indeed, dwarves had been living on the mountain for thousands of years in harmony with the humans of Lake Town on the other side of the lake. But King Thror, after finding the Arkenstone, began to become obsessed with gold and treasure. He accumulated so much that the smell attracted the terrible dragon Smaug. Smaug destroyed the entire city, killing many dwarves and forcing the rest to flee, abandoning their homes and possessions. Many years later, Thorin, his grandson, is determined to return to the Lonely Mountain to retrieve the Arkenstone and the power that goes with it, to kill the dragon, and to take his place on the throne. But Smaug is powerful and is not willing to give up the gold and the mountain so easily.
