At the age of eleven, Sancho was present at the Farewell Party of his uncle Bilbo, along with his father Olo and grandfather Odo.[1] The day after, on September 23, T.A. 3001, he went to Bag End to seek for a treasure he heard rumours about.

A young Hobbit named Sancho Proudfoot - or, the "dread highwayman Sancho Proudfoot ", as he prefers to call himself - causes quite some mischief in Hobbiton and Bywater. Several of the early missions the player - as Frodo - has to do involve solving problems caused by Sancho, such as retrieving a metal pin of the Hobbiton Mill and Old Noakes' medicinal herbs.[3]
