Tobi is the last member of Nightmare’s order to appear in the story. He wears the traditional order's ‘uniform’ (cowl, pants, pointy shoes and Halloween-like skull mask covering his features). Like all male reapers, his mask is cracked, and it differs of others by having the eye holes set in a passive expression, with the crack appearing in a chain-like pattern horizontally across his eyes and descending towards his cheek at the end of it.
Tobi catches up to the group moments after Derrick turned back time to save his group from facing Daesdyne and warns them about going ahead. He’s later seen to have helped the other reaper kids to clean Lucia’s home, and can be assumed to be a summonable reaper now.
Concerning his past, while he states he has been in these lands for a long time, he has vague memories that seems to hint he (and someone taking care of him) may have been trying to escape a bombing, and possibly died as result of the sustained wounds. He states to have been found by Nightmare some time after, while wandering the dream lands.
Personality and traitsEdit
So far not much is known about Tobi’s character. Based on his brief interactions with the character, he seems to be a rather tranquil and nonchalant individual, taking Derrick’s (admittedly quite valid) demands to prove his identity in a stride. He also seems to perhaps be slightly imperturvable, as seen when he describes Daesdyne’s traits without sounding particularly impressed about it, and shrugs off the presence of two monsters in Derricks’ party as no big deal, beyond mentioning he disagrees with the notion.
Tobi \t(o)-bi\ as a boy's name (also used as girl's name), is of Hebrew and English origin, and the meaning of Tobi is "God is good". Tobi is also an a Unisex name in Nigeria, and means ‘great’ in the native Yoruba language.
