"*tober: person inclined to pick a fight and win it"
Not sure where this came from but I've never come across it with this meaning.
Thravellers use the word as meaning a road (Shelta) and elsewhere it is an impermanent site used for a fair.
Either would do in this context.
A 'Tobar' is a holy or spring well.
