Gaylord Koffi is Gobias Koffi's father. He is buried in Pleasant Rest Graveyard, Sunset Valley, and sometimes appears as a ghost in the cemetery.

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.[1]  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.
