Obie (short for Obstetrius) was the child of Echidna and Typhon. Echidna refused to give him to Hera to be trained for evil purposes. Klepto kidnapped Obie, intending to give him to the warlord Bluth for the same reasons. However, in the time Klepto and Obie were together, they grew fond of one another. Once Klepto apologized for his wrong-doing, Echidna and Typhon accepted him as Obie's babysitter..
