|Manga debut||Yu-Gi-Oh! OCG Structures Chapter 0099: "Ageha's Abilities"|
Gob Lintaro (
Gob is a tall man, usually seen wearing his manager's uniform, whose pointed ears give a none-too-subtle resemblance to a goblin. His head is shaved, though he had a full head of hair when he was a middle school student. Though he seems slim physically, he takes exercise and gymnastics very seriously (even wearing weighted armbands as part of his regular uniform), which has given him a very toned, muscular body underneath his clothes.
Gob's full name contains the word "Goblin", befitting his overall appearance.
Up until the end of middle school, Gob was a classmate and close friend of "Traptrix" Ageha, a talented Duelist who had nearly managed to make it to the World Championships at a young age. He loved her from afar, but was too nervous to ever admit it, and they parted ways after graduation. Gob dedicated his life to physical training after that, determined to never be that sort of person again - to be the sort of person that takes that next step.
Years passed, and eventually, Gob had become the manager of the Satellite Shop, and the organizer of multiple Dueling events. One such event was Adult's Night, a gathering for Duelists over the age of 25. By chance, as he was helping his fellow employee Des clean up afterwards, he once again met Ageha Yusa - 25, single, and ready to mingle, but also having completely missed the event, to her great disappointment. Seeing a chance to finally take that next step, Gob offers to be her opponent. Showing off the results of his training, Gob entered the Dueling ring with his old flame... and was summarily and effortlessly trounced. Gob, however, considered himself a lucky man.
Gob plays a "Goblin" Deck, comprised mostly of "Goblin" monsters. Despite what Gob may believe, strong muscles do not make a strong Duelist.
