He is an ambitious young man who was born and raised in Salt Lake City, the notorious City of Gloom (so named for the constant haze of pollution that’s settled over it since Darius Hellstromme set up operations there). He’s spent most of his life working for Dr. Hellstromme, and he even graduated from the master scientist’s notorious Wasatch University with only the best grades.
In essence, Toomes is a man haunted by the possibility of failure. He’s rarely actually been faced with a situation in which he was not in complete control. Working with other dimensional werewolves and Apache Indians in the wilds of Arizona makes him feel something less than secure, and he tends to take this out on those around him.
The young scientist is afraid to return Salt Lake City and face Professor Darius Hellstromme in failure. To return with news of defeat would not only guarantee Toomes dismissal from Wasatch if not from this mortal coil itself.
Appearance: He is of medium height and build with curly, dark hair kept short on the sides, but permitted to go a bit wild up top. A kind of madness sparkles in his pale blue eyes whenever he starts talking about science. The sparkle might be explained by the dark stains on his hands, since the man rarely ever takes precautions when working with ghost rock.
