Tobias, from Ultima VII
Tobias could come across as withdrawn, even spiteful, when speaking to the Avatar - likely owing to his family's near poverty and the ostracism they faced from the local Fellowship due to Camille's "antiquated" beliefs in the Eight Virtues. He, himself, seemed uncertain as to where to set his faith, although he had memories of visiting the Shrine of Sacrifice shortly after his father's death. The boy was initially skeptical of the hero's identity as the Avatar of legend, despite his mother's profound belief.
Tobias vehemently hated the Fellowship, angry at their attempts to recruit him and Camille and upset that they held the availability of their homeless shelter as a privilege for members alone, preying on the impoverished of the region. He was particularly at odds with Garritt, the son of the shelter's operators.
Should the Avatar have chosen to investigate the matter of a theft of silver serpent venom from the local slaughterer, Morfin, Garritt would eventually endeavor to frame Tobias for the crime by planting a vial of the reagent among his possessions. With persistence, the hero could deduce Garritt's guilt after finding an additional vial in his own personal belongings and afterward eliciting a confession from the miscreant - thereby clearing Tobias of any wrongdoing. If thus vindicated, Tobias' attitudes toward the hero would soften, and he would either come to believe in the Avatar's identity, or at the very least tell the champion "I think that thou mayest have a little bit of the way of the Avatar about thee."
