Everyone is familiar with the members of the Fellowship of the Ring, but way more characters exist in J.R.R. Tolkien's work than the hobbits and Gandalf. Numerous adaptations of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings have been made, but whenever the stories make their way to the big screen, the obscure Tolkien characters draw the short stick.
Minor LotR characters like Éomer are incredibly powerful and important to the series, but audiences who've only seen the films wouldn't know that. Then characters from The Hobbit like Radagast have completely different stories in the adaptations than they do in Tolkien's work. When you add that to the additional stories written in The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales, it's impossible to get the full stories of these minor Lord of the Rings characters.
