Tome is in charge of Paradomea's Records and Legislation branch. It is said that he knows every law and the name of every individual in the city. The latter is probably more a product of psionic skills than memory. His prolonged dabbling in the mysteries of the Ebon Bedrock led to him becoming part machine. These were not grafts but bodily changes brought on my contact with the alien material under the Palace of Nine. These bodily changes led to him becoming a being that is half-Tragaran and half modron.
