Profile[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Tomaj is a young man with short brown hair. He has an orange scarf around his neck that hangs down in the back and an tan and orange vest. He has brown pans with light blue pockets with a light tan pouch on the right side, a brown belt that hangs own on the left and brown sandals.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Tomaj is self-centered, and looks out for himself above all else, but acts insulted when someone suggests he is only doing things for money. He also has a lot of confidence and may be somewhat of a flirt, as shown by his suggestive tone when he speaks to Fran. He also tries courting her in Revenant Wings but fails, after which he tosses around the idea of courting Ashe. In Revenant Wings, Tomaj begins showing a softer side by giving the party discounts in his shop.
Story[edit | edit source]
Tomaj's bar has been suffering shortages of supplies, so he petitions a hunt on the monster responsible, the Rogue Tomato. He explains Vaan how to accept a hunt, use the License Board, and gives him a Clan Primer and his first accessory, an Orrachea Armlet. Tomaj remains in the tavern and will give give Vaan a reteach on hunts if asked.
An old hand from the Sandsea, a tavern in Rabanastre. Tomaj collects information to help Vaan and the others on their adventures.
Tomaj accompanies Penelo to the derelict and is forced to stay aboard when it takes off for the sky continent of Lemurés. He elects to maintain the airship and stays on-board at nearly all times. Tomaj is in charge of operations and missions, and gathers information, sets up a notice board for side missions, and runs an equipment shop.
Tomaj's first major assistance to the party is tying up Ba'Gamnan and outfitting the bangaa with "Ba'Gamnan's Bane," a shock device that effectively puts the headhunter at Tomaj's beck and call. After Ba'Gamnan escapes, Tomaj turns his efforts to expanding the airship's Sky Saloon, setting up shops and enlisting the help of other party members, including the stray Yarhi Cu Sith, who mans the weapon forge.
Cu Sith is one of the only crew members to actually show respect for Tomaj, even to the point of calling him "Master Tomaj." After crash-landing in a unknown area, Tomaj starts writing in the the group log more often, and says it has become a pastime for him. He shows anger towards Ba'Gamnan for kidnapping Filo in the log.
As more and more missions are completed, Tomaj shows his soft spots by offering the party discounts on everything in the Sky Saloon, even if it puts him "in the red." He attempts to court Fran, but fails, and Vaan tells him the viera is out of his league. Tomaj is later seen contemplating the possibility of courting Ashe.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Rogue Tomato is a hunt mark found on the Dalmasca Estersand after being petitioned by Tomaj in Rabanastre's Sandsea tavern. It is the first hunt, and the only one the player needs to do to proceed in the game. Felling it allows Vaan to join Clan Centurio, which Tomaj instructs him to do after Vaan returns to collect his bounty.
