Tom C. Zemlja
Tom C. Zemlja
Tom in Book of the Cafe
Tom, despite being an eyeball, is shown to be rather talkative and oddly expressive. They may also be prone to mood changes. Tom is shown to easily get passive-aggressive in the game's FAQ, degrading the player, and even going on a full rant to an unnecessary level.
Their only known name is Tom C. Zemlja (ゼムリャ=C=トム). Zemlja, also romanised as "zemlya", "ziemlia" and "ziemia", is a word in several Slavic languages that means earth or land. What significance this bears to Tom is yet unknown. "Tom" is a term that can refer to male turkeys, making them possibly a bearer of the Bird's Name, although it is unknown if this was intentional. JynX has brought attention to the fact that their name is specifically written as "Tom=C=Zemlja" and not "Tom・C・Zemlja" nor "Tom_C_Zemlja", although its significance is yet unknown.
Tom's main body bears resemblance to the Eye of Senri, with wings attached to the back of the sphere, two talons on the bottom along with a black and white tail. Their torso is larger than a baseball and weighs about the same as an apple, although JynX has also stated that this varies depending on the day and their mood. JynX pointed out that they resemble the Evil Eye Sigma from the Touhou Project.
