Physical Description
GenderMale

Galion was a Wood-elf who served as butler in Thranduil's halls in northeastern Mirkwood

History

Galion served King Thranduil (and presumably also Thranduil's son Legolas). It was Galion's love of wine that gave Bilbo a chance to free Thorin and his companions when they were imprisoned there during the Quest of Erebor. On a night of feasting, the butler drank deeply with his friend the captain of the guards: so deeply that both fell asleep. With the aid of the captain's keys and his Magic Ring, Bilbo was able to rescue the Dwarves and organise a daring waterborne escape.

Portrayal in adaptations

1968: The Hobbit (1968 radio series):

Peter Baldwin provided the voice of Galion.

2003: The Hobbit (2003 video game):

This video game depicts only Galion, and not the Captain of the Guard. The butler does not succumb to drunkenness, but because Bilbo puts three herbs - Moonleaf, Willowweed and Spider's Bane - in his mug. This change was possibly made to ensure a more favourable game rating.
