History: He was hired to track down the Rainbow Shell by the village elder of Dorino. He ultimately did track down the location of the Rainbow Shell, which he narrowed to the Giant's Claw off the coast of Choras. Unfortunately, he was not able to penetrate the lair itself, still plagued with Azala's old dinosaur henchmen. Before his first attempt at the place, he instructed Crono and his party to take his drink and pour it on his future grave on the West Cape. After doing so, his ghost arose and revealed the location of the shell. Back in the medieval period, he noted that he was not sour about getting beaten to the treasure, but declared that he would most definitely find the Sun Stone first (another treasure he was beaten to by the heroes of time).
After having failed miserably at both jobs his reputation had diminished considerably. This was when he heard talk of a ‘strange world effecting the magic of his world, less interested in the ramifications that could have, and more interested in the major boost his name would receive if he had a hand in stopping it, he inquired if he could help. A group of scientists helped by a mysterious old man by the name of Melchior had managed to alter the teleportation machine invented by Lucca to open a makeshift portal to this ‘Nexus’ as they called it. Toma, after much pleading, was hired for the job. Once he was packed and ready, He stepped through the portal with little more than the scientists to see him embark on what would be his greatest adventure.
It's pretty light but I'm not sure what to add.
