Average height and stocky, with a thin, black coat. Has tan dots above his green eyes, but no other markings. Tobi has well-formed muscles from lots of manual labour, which can make him look reasonably intimidating until he opens his mouth.

Except for when hauling logs (in Secui form), Tobi is most often in Optime form and wears a thick, fur-lined jacket and a fur kilt-like wrap around his waist. Sometimes has an axe belt or tool belt.


A vivacious flirt who likes to drink. Super bi, but looser with men because he's afraid of accidentally fathering children. Acts like he hates work and is a slacker (he complains a lot, but is actually very hardworking and serious about improving at his trade.

Easily frustrated with himself and others, wants to improve faster than is probably realistic, and tends to beat himself over failures internally while blaming basically everything but himself publicly. He really hates being teased about the Goodboy family's reputation for working hard and moral steadfastness.


Extremely casual and quick to flirt with strangers, sometimes becoming even more obnoxious or slightly belligerent if they don't humor him or reciprocate. Will tone it down and pull back if people seem genuinely afraid or uncomfortable though.

Plays dumb often when being asked questions; doesn't tend to ask too many questions himself, but is very to-the-point when he does. Doesn't mince words, curses casually, and seems to have little respect for rank or authority. Will apologise readily if he's called out on being rude, but probably still won't correct himself either.

Slurs or clips words often, has a noticeable drawl most of the time, uses "y'all" as a singular pronoun sometimes?? Why.



Wood treatment and processing

Tobi knows a lot about identifying trees, the properties of different types of wood, and what types of wood are best suited to what purposes. (He's also very opinionated about this.) He also has general knowledge about treating wood with oils and other substances for weatherproofing and aesthetic reasons, but doesn't know as much about the properties of different types of oils.


Begrudgingly, Tobi has a lot of experience in construction, especially the manual labour part. He's very good at following blueprints and instructions and can usually understand what the intent was given an incomplete guide. He seems to have a natural talent for piecing together construction puzzles and can often intuitively devise solutions to unique engineering problems -- they don't always work, but he's always quick to learn from trial and error. For all his complaining, Tobi is actually a decent and highly adaptive architect.


Artistic carving and the creation of small, useful objects, like decorated wooden boxes, trays, and cups, are Tobi's passion, but his skill is still intermediate. His carvings, while intricate, tend to be a little rough or unevenly sanded. Most of his creations are plain wood, but sometimes he'll dye or paint them as well.


Tobi's uncle, Mitchell Goodboy, is a well-respected, construction-focused woodworker who has been developing the cutting edge of Luperci architecture in Savannah. Growing up, Tobi and his brother Indi often watched or helped Mitchell take apart and put back together old human homes that weren't being used.

While Indi continued that path and began helping Mitchell with projects as he got older, Tobi instead found that he enjoyed working on smaller, practical items instead. He doesn't consider construction, especially new construction, particularly necessary since they have so many old human structures to make use of. Apparently this isn't the case in the boonies of Nova Scotia though. :|
