Tobias is a student in Paul R. Williams High school. This is the same highschool that Madison, Travis, and Art work at. He is considered, "Wise beyond his years" and is one of the first people to notice the oncoming of the zombie apocalypse. In this sense he acts as the show's harbinger.
Tobias is called into the office of the school counselor Madison Clark for bringing a knife to school. When questioned why Tobias would bring a knife to school he explains that it is because of the virus. He has closely followed news reports of a mysterious virus that has spread through 5 states. The reports made him paranoid and he began carrying the knife for his own protection. Madison attempts reassure Tobias that things will be "ok". Saying that the authorities will take care of the situation if it exists at all. Madison seems skeptical that there is an outbreak at all.
Later, Tobias catches Madison is trying to pull out confiscated drugs out of an administration locker from Paul R. Williams High School. Tobias came to the empty school to get his knife back and acquire large amounts of food. He begins to explain to Madison the steps of society breaking down, and that it occurs rapidly. As the two are walking through the school they are attacked by the former Principal Art. Art has become a zombie. The two fight him off, and kill him. Madison tells Tobias she can stay with him but he refuses. Madison still has not accepted that the fall of civilization is at hand.
Interview with Lincoln Castellanos who plays Tobias:
Tobias has become one of the more popular Fear the Walking Dead characters and Lincoln Castellanos was interviewed by Yahoo TV. A few ecerpts:
On having additional worries from other people.
Absolutely. While everyone else is dealing with their own personal problems, he’s got a whole other world of worries on his plate. He really feels that there’s nothing he can do except prepare, and that’s what you see him try to do. When we meet him, he’s kind of on his own mission, trying to get it done, because he really has no help; he’s on his own. He’s got a little bit of trouble back in his family … at least Madison is there to an extent to try to help him and reassure him that the authorities will let us know if something happens. But Tobias knows what’s up.About Tobias maintaining hope in the dire situation:
Absolutely, because even when somebody feels like all hope is lost, it’s just in our nature to maintain that little glimmer of something to believe in. Yes, life is hard, and he really has no one to turn to, except Madison, who has been there throughout his time in high school, who has tried to help him find a more promising future. I believe that’s why he does take that extra step to finally try to tell somebody about what’s happening. It’s not just about him trying to get his knife back. I think deep down, he is hopeful, and he does want to save at least somebody who cares about him.
