It's unknown how Hobie appeared in Gothel's manor. He is a friend of two another Gothel's captives: Rapunzel and Penelope. He always asks Rapunzel (and Penelope) to stay in the manor to not make Gothel angrier than she is. Though, when Rapunzel is out for too long, Hobie forces Penelope to go through the painting and remind Rapunzel about Gothel.
At the end of the film, after Rapunzel's wedding, Hobie stays in the castle, sleeping on the softest pillows with lots of carrots.
Hobie is worrisome and tends to moan a lot. He reluctantly joins Rapunzel and Penelope in their adventures, though he is very afraid of Gothel. He has good hearing, and is more passive than Penelope.
Hobie is a small gray rabbit with grey-blue eyes. He has a slight paunch. It is hinted that he doesn't take very good care of himself, as he claims he has a bad back and bad eyesight. He also said he had corns, bunions and ingrown toenails on his feet. However, his hearing is immaculate. Hobie also seems to have a bit of an accent, probably Scottish.
