"Douglas, she would be dead if Abraham hadn't been there. I was in charge and my plan would have gotten her killed. She would be dead. How many others died because I'm a coward? Do you remember Barnes? What about Richards?"
—Tobin to Douglas[src]

Tobin is a character first encountered in Issue 69 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a resident living in the Alexandria Safe-Zone who works for the construction crew along with Holly, Abraham, Bruce, Guard 1, and Guard 2.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Tobin's life before or as the outbreak began, other than he used to work at a desalination plant and he managed to make his way somehow to the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

Post-Apocalypse

Alexandria Safe-Zone

Tobin led a group in the Safe-Zone that included Bruce, Barnes, Richards, Holly, and two others. Later, he unintentionally allowed Barnes and Richards to be killed. 

Life Among Them

He first appeared in Issue 69, leading a small group. He, Bruce, and two guards arrived to assist Heath, Scott, and Rick Grimes' group. Later, he was seen in Issue 73 at the construction site for the expansion of the Alexandria Safe-Zone Community.

Too Far Gone

Tobin and Abraham argued after Tobin abandoned Holly to be eaten by the living dead. After Abraham successfully warded off the zombies and rescued Holly, Tobin told Abraham about the community rules over situations similar to that, and hoped Holly agreed with him. Holly instead kicked him in the groin, and he vomited. Later, Tobin was seen speaking with Douglas Monroe over his guilt from nearly allowing Holly to be killed. He mentioned a couple residents, Barnes and Richards, who had died because of his cowardice.

No Way Out

In Issue 79, he was seen at the construction site, running over zombies while attempting to escape from a horde, as Abraham assisted. In the said issue, he assisted Abraham, Glenn, and Heath clear out the horde of zombies attacking the community.

Death

Killed By

In Issue 81, he and Holly were the first to witness the zombies finally push through a loose panel of the Community's wall, and he ordered Holly to alert Rick and the others. Tobin redeemed his prior poor decisions by attempting to fight off the converging zombies, to no avail. When Rick and company arrived on the scene, Tobin was found dead, already torn apart and disemboweled by the zombies.

Relationships

Spencermon This relationship section needs a lot of work.

Holly

Tobin and Holly were close friends, although, after he left her for dead when the group was ambushed by zombies, their friendship fell apart, overall. This was redeemed later, however, as Tobin sent Holly away as the zombies broke through the wall to get the others, attempting to hold them off and sacrificing himself.

Abraham Ford

Abraham and Tobin were mutual friends. The two butted heads and clashed on multiple occasions, but put their differences aside when walkers breached the Safe-Zone. Tobin shows tremendous respect for Abraham when he sees him fighting zombies to save Holly, making himself feel cowardly. He later admits this to Douglas, and steps down. This shows that he trusted Abraham to lead the construction crew over himself.

Bruce

Bruce followed Tobin's orders and they worked together in the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Both seemed to be close friends.

Douglas Monroe

Tobin and Douglas had a pretty basic relationship, they knew each other as they were part of the same community. Tobin detested his job that was assigned to him by Douglas, but he worked for him nonetheless.
