Who Am I?

After a two week departure from Who Am I?, I am back with the final question. So be sure to submit your answer, and next week we’ll draw for a winner from all submissions given!

Who am I Character #8

I am diminutive in stature, but what I lack in height I make up for in wit and confidence.

While traveling, I come across a “precious” treasure, which comes in quite “handy” but turns out to be very dangerous.

I travel with twelve companions, whom are also on the small side.

I am good at riddles, and enjoy the comforts of home.

My feet are hairy.
