He rode down from the fells, prey to an unsettling mix of emotions. Incredulity and impatience at Quinn's fat-heided scheme, a weary dismay at the realization that the Jacobite Cause was still alive, if only faintly squirming, and irritation at Quinn's attempt to inveigle him back into it. More than a bit of fear, if he was honest. And notwithstanding all that... joy at seeing Quinn again. It had been a long time since he’d seen the face of a friend.


Tobias Quinn was an Irish Jacobite sympathizer who knew Jamie Fraser during the Jacobite Rising of 1745.

Utilizing his former sister-in-law Betty Mitchell, Tobias tries to involve Jamie Fraser – and co-incidentally Lord John Grey – into his scheme of using a mystical Celtic cup to help rally the scattered and beaten Jacobite cause. Eventually, he kills Gerald Siverly for embezzling Jacobite funds and tries to frame Grey for it. Later, he commits suicide when his plans fall apart.
