Tobias is a 5'10 16 year old American boy with blue eyes, tanned skin, a robotic left arm- the fore arm is made of Red Chrome Digizoid, and the upper arm is steel-, and fiery red Goku-like hair. He wears gold goggles with blue lenses, a short sleeve red shirt with a stylized white Chinese dragon on it, blue jeans with a leather belt, brown army boots, and a single white glove on his human right arm. He has a leather jacket tied around his waist, and has a sword sheath worn across his chest. The sword carried in the sheath is the Champion Buster. He possess a red digivice called the Digivice Chaos.
Tobias Ryder is the oldest child of the Ryder Family, the family that owns the (redundancy alert) Ryder Corporation that specializes in computer technologies. Tobias is fluent in both Japanese and English, as he has moved back and forth between America and Japan for years due to his family's business ventures. One would expect that Tobias to be quiet, secluded, and socially anxious, or anything else but what he is due to a birth defect that left him with only his right arm, but that isn't even close to true; Tobias is athletic, energetic, and a true hot-head in every sense, with an insatiable urge to prove himself in the face of adversity. Through constant training and hard work, he has mastered just about every sport he has played, and before he went to the Digital World, he had just led the (pardon me if this isn't factually accurate) the junior soccer team to victory against the senior team. Although he doesn't have as developed of a strategical mind as his classmate Kudou Taiki (Mikey Kudo in english), he makes up for this by constantly training and experimenting with new techniques, as well as researching the techniques of others, adapting them to his style and making them his own, a unique trait that would serve him well in the Digital World.
On the first day he started High School, Timemon came from the future and invaded the Human World, and Omega Shoutmon and the other main members of Team Xros Heart- now evolved- AtlurBallistamon and JagerDorulumon, followed to assist in the battle against him. Tobias is told by Taiki to flee along with Mori Kasumi, his new acquaintance. They run into his childhood friend, Hiro Kou, and the three hide in a closet together, only to be summoned by Ygg to the Digital World ten years in the future (though they don't know that is was Ygg who summoned them until much later in their adventures.)
When the trio comes to, Tobias realizes he has a synthetic left arm, which he is told by Greymon C later on is made of Red Chrome Digizoid. Within the synthetic arm is the Digivice Chaos, which can be moved from inside the arm into his hand by a robotic mechanism controlled by his will. After arriving in the Digital World, he meets his partner Kaomon, and becomes the Digimon Champion by finding and claiming the Champion Buster Sword. They later meet Kou's partner, Suitmon, and Kasumi's partner, Charitymon, and other Digimon, and upon being given the mission to collect the Ancient Powers, become the Crimson Blaze Army.
Abilities of the Digivice Chaos Edit
