Lukas keeps talking about kings and politics, but that does little for me. I’m actually just in it for the gold. I have a family to feed, after all.
— Tobin

Tobin (Japanese: ロビン Robin) is a Zofian villager appearing in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its 3DS remake. He is from Ram and is one of the first people to accompany Alm.

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Role

He is one of the first characters recruited in the game. He agrees to follow Alm and seize Zofia's castle at the beginning of the game. After the war, he becomes a knight of Valentia.

  • In Gaiden, promotion gains consist on giving the character as many points as necessary -the "x" value shown in the table- to reach the promoted class' base stats. If the character's stats are higher than their promoted class' base stats, they will not receive any bonus; however, if all stats are higher, then they will receive +1 to HP.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Role

Tobin reprises his role in the remake, where he is recruited automatically and has a much larger role interacting with Alm. Unlike Gray, he's more hesitant in joining him, but accepts when Lukas mentions soldiers get paid for their efforts, as he wants to help his family. He remains by Alm's side as his trusting friend, and frequently comments on the ongoing events, either with Alm himself, or Gray. Once again, he becomes part of Valentia's knighthood at the end of the game, and is granted a title and castle as a reward for his friendship and loyalty to Alm.

Analysis

This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.


Tobin does wall as an Archer or a Mage. Mage Tobin gets very early access to the powerful Excalibur spell and has Physic to keep him viable later on; however, Tobin's growths suit him better as an Archer for post-game purposes.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Role

Tobin is one of the characters added to the game in the Ylissean Summer update, and was made available to players in the second edition of the Tempest Trials, "Resonating Fangs", which initially ran from July 7, 2017 through July 21, 2017. Only one variation of Tobin is currently available in Heroes, based on his Echoes: Shadows of Valentia incarnation.

Personality and character

Tobin has minimal dialogue in Gaiden, but he is loyal to Alm, whom he is willing to follow in Alm's quest to take back Zofia.

In Shadows of Valentia, he is constantly competing with Alm and Gray, suggesting that he has an inferiority complex. However, he eventually accepts being part of their strength. As the eldest of his family, he maintains an air of brotherly warmth and kindness which transfers to his friends. He greatly values familial ideals as he joined the Deliverance to support his family monetarily.

Ending

Gaiden

As one of the knights of the kingdom, he works towards the restoration of Valentia.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

If Gray survived
As one of the most scrupulous knights in the One Kingdom's Brotherhood, Tobin spent his life serving his friend King Alm. The king, in turn, placed a great deal of trust in Tobin, eventually granting him both a title and his own castle.

If Gray died
Unable to move past Gray's death, Tobin abruptly vanished before reappearing just as suddenly several years later. At King Alm's suggestion, he joined the One Kingdom's Brotherhood of Knights. The talkative, playful Tobin of old, however, was gone forever.
