Toppo's profile“ A busker who excels in fiddling and juggling, yet seldom speaks in public. ”
Toppo is a travelling entertainer, skilled in juggling and playing the fiddle. He travels with Shabon and Nei, earning money for their performances.
Toppo rarely speaks in public, communication that he believes that whenever possible that actors should not talk. Instead, he usually communicates through miming. He does sometimes speak with Nei and Shabon but even then he speaks very softly. He sees himself as something of a protector for his two companions. He would join the Fire Bringer alongside them after Shabon was rescued from Guillaume.
At Budehuc Castle, he was considered a kind hearted man, making wooden toys for the children who lived there. Following the War of the Champions, Toppo continued to perform with the troupe, dreaming of opening a small theatre someday.
