|Gobias Koffi is a well-meaning single Sim who just hasn't met the right woman. Is this because he actually prefers the company of his male friends?|
|Number of generations||2 generations|
|Lot||433 Sunnyside Boulevard|
|Game||The Sims 3|
Gobias lives alone, and is fairly isolated from any kind of neighbor: the house next door is empty, cul-de-sac street in front of his house is deserted, the Wolff family and Working Friends household live a driving distance down the road on both sides, while the Frio brothers are a running/driving distance up the block.
Koffi: Variant of a masculine Akan/Western African name "Kofi" meaning "born on Friday" in Akan.
Gaylord: From an English surname which was derived from Old French gaillard "high-spirited, boistrous". This name was rarely used after the mid-20th century, when the word gay acquired the slang meaning "homosexual".
Gobias: Not a real name, but very similar to the name "Tobias". Gobias Koffi's name is a reference to the actor David Cross' character, Tobias, on the cancelled FOX show Arrested Development. In season 1 of the series, Tobias and his brother-in-law, Gob, decide to start a business, and come up with the name "Gobias... as in 'go buy us a cup of coffee'", hence Gobias Koffi. Tobias's homosexual tendencies and verbal double-entendres cause his sexuality to be called into question throughout the series. Gobias' sexual orientation is unknown. Gobias also shares Tobias' Never-Nude trait (a term coined by the show's writers to describe Tobias's fear of nudity) and he bears a physical resemblance to David Cross, the actor who portrays Tobias in the series.
