“Tomescu a Garold” were a pair of knock-off toons created behind the Iron Curtain, commissioned by the Americans. In creation, they were repurposed by the Soviet Union for spying and assassinations. They were sent off on their tour of American Studios, only to expectedly fail. During their attempt at penetrating American viewership, Tomescu fell in love with America.
Once he and Garold got home, they attempted to defect Russia. Garold only leaving due to a deep love and respect for his partner. Unfortunately, they were both caught at the Berlin Wall. One of the higher ups present was Garold’s father, who managed to have his life spared.
Tomescu was gunned down at the Berlin Wall.
Garold grieved for his comrade and carried his remains with him, in the form of the blood-soaked rock from the Berlin Wall. The actual location of his body is unknown and was a state secret, lost to the world. Garold resented that he was spared. He was sent back into the KGB, warned there was no second chances.
Garold drifted within the KGB game for a while, doing his tours in South America, Afghanistan, etc. After the Cold War ended, there was a need for someone of his calibur. Garold now works in the freelance game.
Soviet Toons aren’t made of the same stuff as American Toons. As a result, he’s quite vulnerable to the regular stuff that’d kill people. However, he’s able to take standard toon damage and bounce back, just fine, however. So his home-made explosives, hammers, gun-shots, knives, are just fine.
Tomescu started haunting him after his death. He’s the more talkative of the two, even though only Garold hears him. Whether he exists or is the adopted personification of Garold’s diminishing voice of reason is unknown. However, Garold takes Tomescu very seriously.
