The Hobbit is the main character in the book The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The word hobbit may come from the Old English word holbytla, which means hole-dweller.

It depends on what you mean by "person". Very few of the characters in The Hobbit are actually human beings. So part of a character's identity must be their species. It most books that is not an issue, but in The Hobbit it matters whether we are talking about a dwarf, hobbit, elf, or dragon. Another important factor is names. Tolkien was a linguist and names were very important to him, even in The Hobbit where he is writing for children.
