Tobias Smith was Embraced in Malta in the late 1880’s, and has been with the Sabbat ever since. A former member of several influential and respected packs, Smith fought bravely in the sect’s civil war. He rose quickly through the ranks and became Templar to Cardinal Desmoines during World War I. His career was long and distinguished, and he went on to advise and protect Cardinal Desmoines in Mexico City, Smith himself might have been named Cardinal if he hadn’t been distracted by the mortal Carolina Valez.
He watched her from afar for a month, and fell in love with the Mexican’s intensity. Giving in to his desire, he abducted Carolina and forced her through the Creation Rites only to be fraught with guilt and regret. He left the cemetery before she arose, leaving her to be discovered by other Sabbat. From that day forward, Smith looked after Valez and used his influence to pave her road to success.
Tobias was not planning to join Valez’s pack, but couldn’t stand the idea that she would be in Los Angeles, and later Montreal far from his watchful eye. The two remained together until quite recently. Smith couldn’t bring himself to confess his feelings (partly because he believes his emotional attachments as a weakness)
In the recent year, Carolina Valez and Tobias Smith have had a falling out. Where once Tobias Smith’s ultra Conservatism and Valez’s moderate stance served as a strength to the Lost Angels quickly became an area of contention. The arrival of Lilly Baker also diverted Tobias’ attention away from Valez. Lilly Baker became Tobias’ new love interest. Instead of manipulating things behind the scenes to promote her, Tobias allowed Lilly to rise or fall on her own merits. She did not disappoint, Along with the other packs formed in Quebec City, the two have systematically toppled the long-standing camarilla of the city and later Justicar Annabelle Triabelle along with her Archons. The two made a great team in leadership. He considers Lilly close to his equal whom he also trusts implicitly, and has thus promoted her to be his Paladin. While Lilly is highly attracted to Tobioas’ inner power, Tobias is very much attracted to Lilly’s intensity-the two compliment the other to become a force to be reckoned with in Quebec City and elsewhere.
