    Somehow, I'm playing at least three different Tobiases right now. I am going to list them all here, but this one post can be simply archived under "Tobias Goswell".

    Tobias Victor Vulpan


    Spoiler
    Show
    Aliases: The Goddamned Tobias. The Black Fox. Theoktonos. King Tobias I.
    Gender: Male.
    Race/Species: Branded (Half Beorc/Half Laguz).
    Age: 58, looks to be 29.
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Affiliation: HALO, despite not an actual member anymore.
    Class/Profession: Druid
    Power Rating: A, based on just his powers. He has previously held his own against Higher Powers with his cunning and bag of tricks.
    Description:
    Tall, with wild red hair and some kind of birthmark on his neck, which looks like a tattoo done in red ink. The identical twin of Sam Goswell (somehow). His eyes are like a fox: dark orange iris with a vertical black slit for a pupil.
    Personality: Anywhere between happy-go-lucky and arrogant, and depressed and world-weary.
    Equipment: Wears earth-tone leather tunics, dark cloaks with several inside pockets, numerous pouches on the outside (at least one with extradimensional storage space), a few artifacts and magic items, light boots, and literally almost everything else stored in his satchel of holding. Tobias is the quintessential Boy Scout. Tobias also wears a hat with a small phoenix feather stuck in it, for the symbolism. This hat is actually a powerful artifact of some kind. It normally takes the form of a battered brown fedora, but Tobias has displayed the ability to change his clothes and his very personality when the hat magically changes into another hat. He literally "wears many hats", and can become any sort of person he needs to, depending on the job. This is not shapeshifting, so much as personality shifting, only less dramatic and rarely used.
    Abilities: He's an Epic level Druid, who uses powerful nature spells. He is very flexible and can adapt his magic to perform a specific task, such as preventing a magical gas from diffusing into his bloodstream and forcibly expelling it from his body. His Branded nature gives him a very deep well of energy to draw on for his magic, and it also gives him heightened senses and reflexes, which he uses for knife fighting.
    Backstory: One day, I'll type it all up... This is not that day. Try asking him.
    Miscellaneous: Tries to help out everybody, but is frequently depressed. He adopted a Golden Dragon and named her Aurea. He has two kids, Matt and Angela, from when Boudica stole his and Orianna's DNA to create the perfect soldier and assassin. He has another kid, Cruikshank, from when the evil demigod of rot, Jester, did something weird with his and Coria's DNA. He is a king of a small but powerful nation which can be accessed from the Nexus, but isn't part of the power struggles around here. He has fought in at least two major wars, more or less in a strategic planning capacity. He won both of them, but at great costs. He is currently married to Sept, who is probably perma-deadtimed, and as such pops in and out of the Nexus whenever his player feels like.


    Toby Druid

    Aliases: The Black Fox. Theoktonos. Druid.
    Gender: Male.
    Race/Species: Branded (Half Beorc/Half Laguz).
    Age: Early 40s, looks early 20s.
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Affiliation: GLoG
    Class/Profession: Druid
    Power Rating: B-
    Description: Tall, with short red hair and some kind of birthmark on his neck. The identical twin of Sam Goswell (somehow). Has sharp blue eyes that reveal his troubled mind and hints at a great many things seen. His eyes may reveal his true age, but the rest of his body looks quite young. He is skinny and of average height, physically anything but imposing. Looks like a hippie pushover until you see how confident he is with his knives and magic.
    Personality: Anywhere between happy-go-lucky and arrogant, and depressed and world-weary.
    Equipment: Wears earth-tone leather tunics, dark cloaks with several inside pockets, numerous pouches on the outside (at least one with extradimensional storage space), a few artifacts and magic items, light boots, and literally almost everything else stored in his satchel of holding. Tobias is the quintessential Boy Scout. Tobias also wears a hat with a small phoenix feather stuck in it, for the symbolism.
    Abilities: He's a powerful Druid, with strong nature spells. His magic is focused on battlefield healing, and he's something of a professional trauma surgeon, without a degree. He is very flexible and can adapt his magic to perform a specific task, such as healing a specific artery or bone. His Branded nature gives him a very deep well of energy to draw on for his magic, and it also gives him heightened senses and reflexes, which he uses for knife fighting.
    Backstory: The backstory of the main one, just less so.
    Miscellaneous: This Tobias is a Tobias from the past! He's about twenty years younger than the main one, and he joined GLoG after falling out of the Nexus. He is currently engaged to Quinn and had a daughter, Jamie, by her. He also adopted two foxchildren after talking to their newly-ghosted mom, who reminded him of his own foxwoman mother, whom he's never actually met. He is trying to come to terms with his willingness to kill people for a variety of unimportant reasons (I mean he likes to hurt people when he's bored, not that his mental self-grappling is unimportant). He views Quinn as his redeeming angel, and wants to be a Good person.

    Frankly, I'm disappointed it took you this long.

    A strange thing happens when one speaks aloud: words take on their own meaning.
    They move in through the listener's ears and make themselves at home,
    decorating their meaning with whatever memories they find lying around.
