Ignored and forgotten by the world, misfortune has been the only constant in the Hobo's life. But an act of generosity has stoked his fire, and now he would defy those who threaten Fahrul.
hobo question mark

A purple question mark, indicating the Hobo's presence.

The Hobo is a character in For The King which was added with Patch no. 1.1.17. Unlike the other Characters available through The Lore Store, it first needs to be found in a For The King game. The Hobo will appear as a purple question mark on the Map.

Unlocking the Hobo[]

Once the player approaches the purple question mark, he will encounter a Friend In Need. You will be asked to spare a varying amount of coins. Once unlocked, the player can buy the Hobo in The Lore Store for 15 Lore to use it as a character in future games

Friend In Need

The Hobo - appearing as a Friend In Need.

The Hobo has all of its base-stats set to 70. He has no special abilities and starts with 5 gold and a Sharpened Stick as his starting-weapon.

The Hobo's starting weapon.

The Sharpened Stick deals 6 physical damage and checks the strength stat twice.

The Hobo starts the game with a max Focus Points of 2, compared to the other classes max Focus Points of 3. The only other class to have a different starting Focus Points is the Scholar, whose max Focus Points at game start is 4.


The Hobo only wears underwear, shin sleeves, and arm sleeves. The female version also sports a chest covering and a choker.


The Hobo's "price" will increase with the player's progress.

The purple question mark may disappear, just like other encounters do in For The King.
