Gobias Koffi is a clear reference to Arrested Development's Tobias Funke, a character who is often implied to be gay. Gaylord's first name may be a pun on the term "gay" — slang for "homosexual," thereby implying that his son is gay. However, "Gaylord" is an actual, if uncommon, given name. It may have been intended to sound somewhat "old-fashioned."
Gobias Koffi's mother does not appear in the family tree, and they don't share any physical features, so it is possible that Gaylord adopted him. Gaylord dresses like a cowboy.
It is possible that his name doesn't imply he's gay, but implies he's the father of a gay son. Lord implies an authority, for example, he's the authority of someone who's gay.
Gaylord has a thin body shape, likely caused by his death from starvation. His original body shape is unknown.
- Strangely, he has the Can't Stand Art but also has the Artistic and Easily Impressed traits, even though they conflict.
- It is possible that he was originally from Appaloosa Plains, hinted at both by his cowboy-like appearance and the fact that the aforementioned town is home to The Koffi Café.
- ↑ Wiktionary says that it has "rarely been given after the 1960s because of the modern meaning of gay."
