Leaving Iris for the first time[]

One day, while he and Iris where in the late 1990s, they had a fight, and he left Iris in a fit of pique, and seeing as he was in approximately his native time, he decided to stay on Earth. (PROSE: Preface, AUDIO: Wildthyme at Large)

Tom would eventually meet Panda, a sentient ten inch tall stuffed bear, and five years after he left Iris, he began writing his "Wildthyme" novels, which chronicled some of his adventures with Iris. (AUDIO: Wildthyme at Large)

One Halloween, Tom dressed up in drag and used "Eartha Wyndenfire" as his drag name. (PROSE: The Golden Hendecahedron)

Second run of adventures with Iris[]

In the late 2000s, ten years after he last met Iris, she returned, entrusting him with the Memory Crystal, before she left with Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Feeling guilty about his "Wildthyme" novels, he decided (with Panda) to go to his publisher, Satan & Satan Ltd., and tell his editor that he would no longer be writing any more novels about Iris.

The publisher turned out to be a front designed by MIAOW, as a plan to find out about Iris' secrets, but after a showdown with the Head, Iris forced Mida to terminate Tom's contract of writing books about her. Iris, Tom, and Panda set off to have more adventures through the multiverse. (AUDIO: Wildthyme at Large)

He was sent by Marwick to the ID club. He had a first in English Literature. Iris thought he was becoming the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. (AUDIO: The Devil in Ms. Wildthyme)

In his youth, Tom was prideful, (PROSE: Preface) as well as being gay. (PROSE: Verdigris)
