Although “Hobbit” is listed in OED – and an invention of Tolkien’s – no hyphenated forms are.

Hobbit-boy

Grim-voiced

In all three cases referring to Bard – and although he speaks in a handful of chapters, it is only in chapter 14 that we see this word describing him.

I also talk about this word in the Grim entry, since we are interested in who and what are grim in any way, but out hyphen adventure leads me to separate “Grim-voiced” into its own entry as well.  this compound word is JRRT original, not found in OED.
