Once upon a time there was a boy named Tommy. Tommy was a very timid boy who had trouble making friends, and that's why he was called Timid Tommy.
After many years, Splendor Man noticed that he was being bullied, but unlike other scary fellows, Timid Tommy knew being bullied did not excuse becoming a psychopathic murderer.
Splendor Man gave Tommy many gifts, until one day he discovered that Tommy had an easier time approaching others when he was wearing a mask.
Tommy then became a buddy of Splendor Man.
