Toby from Battleborn

Toby is a hero in Battleborn

Is part of the Rogues Faction.


Despite his talent for engineering, Toby was rejected as a potential Peacekeeper conscript due to his adorable and diminuitive form. Toby then offered his genius to the Rogues, where he can pour his anxious, self-loathing energy into the construction of walking death machines.
