Otho is the eldest direct male-line relative of Bilbo Baggins . His father, Longo, is the eldest brother of Bilbo's father, Bungo. Until Bilbo adopted Frodo, Otho was Bilbo's heir and inheritor of all Baggins family property.
"Otho and his wife Lobelia were present [at the Farewell feast]. They disliked Bilbo and detested frodo, but so magnificent was the invitation card, written in gold ink, that they had felt it was impossible to refuse."
"The Sackville-bagginses were rather offensive. They began by offering [Frodo] bad barain-proces (as between friends) for various valuable and unlabelled things. When frodo replied that only the things specifically directed by Bilbo were being given away, they said the whole affair was very fishy.
'Only one thing is clear to me,' said Otho, 'and that is that you are doing exceedingly well out oof it. I insist on seeing the will.'
Otho would have been Bilbo's heir, but ofr the adoption of Frodo. He read the will carefully and snorted. It was, unfortunately, very clear and correct (according to the best legal customes of hobbits, which demanded among other things seven signatures of witnesses in red ink).
'Foiled again!' he said to his wife. 'And after waiting sixty years. Spoons? Fiddlesticks!' He snapped his fingers under Frodo's nose and stumped off."
