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." 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.

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.Gaylord has a thin body shape, likely caused by his death from starvation. His original body shape is unknown.

Like other ghosts in Sunset Valley, when resurrected his hat will not carry over into his other outfits by default. Like some other ghosts, this will cause a glitch where part of his hair appears colorless. This can be fixed by reselecting his current hairstyle at a stylist, in Create-A-Sim using testingcheats, or with NRaas Industries Master Controller.

  1. Wiktionary says that it has "rarely been given after the 1960s because of the modern meaning of gay."
