HobsonLogo

Hobson Twillgers was the previous owner of The Ranch before it was passed on to Beatrix.

At the end of Adventure Mode, it is revealed that Hobson's final adventure was to use the Warp Terminal at the end of The Glass Desert to travel space and time, before ultimately changing his mind because of his love for Thora West. He currently resides at her Ranch.

He is the owner of The Vaults, the contents of which he intended to use as "walking around money in the great beyond". He unlocks all three post-Adventure mode for Beatrix.

Biography

Not much is known about Hobson's life especially during the time he still lived on earth.

His tendency to search for adventures may be the reason why he chose to leave earth and live on the Far, Far Range.

He usually slept in The Grotto and dreamt that he's drifting off a sea of stars. He also built The Lab after meeting Viktor Humphries and learning about Plort Technology. He would spend most of his time tinkering here on rainy days, and have the tendency to blow himself up while doing so.

At some point, he met Thora West in The Indigo Quarry and soon fell in love. He went through Cinder Grove just to pick up crystals for the chimes that Thora makes during her spare time, even if he got stuck for almost two days.

When he visited The Ancient Ruins, that was the time were he began to ponder about his choices in life, giving him the idea of a risk-it-all choice or a happy life. The doors would always reminded him that in life, you can't have both doors open, one would close if you chose a different path while one would open if you choose that path in life.

When he visited The Glass Desert before leaving The Ranch, he encountered a switch with two doors near the end of the desert. One door would open while the other would close. His note said that the two doors represented his life choices, one where he would use the warp terminal to be the first human to travel through space and time, and the other is having a life with Thora. He stepped on the warp terminal but he chose not to go. Instead, he packed his things and moved to Thora's Ranch to finally discover what love really is.

He also built The Vaults to store Gold Plorts that he originally would use to "walk around money in the great beyond", but he chose to live with Thora. He unlocks The Vaults for Beatrix at the post-Adventure Mode.
