Tobias was an English spy. He met with Nathaniel Hawk in Oxbay while impersonating a French officer, waiting in the tavern. He cost the French officer Rabel Yverneau a small fortune in a game of backgammon, which forced Rabel to owe him his ship. When the French soldiers detected them, they went to Oweyn McDorey to be hidden from the soldiers, and they then escaped on Yverneau's ship, reaching Redmond shortly before Oxbay was liberated.
Behind the scenes
- Tobias's model is based on a French officer's from the game.
