"He's gone. We didn't ask. We don't care. Does anybody?" - Jagged Alliance 2 Alumni gallery




Hiring Info

Deadly Games

  • Will be upset if he's fired before he participated in at least one mission.

Additional info

  • Has the hidden Stealthy trait, giving him a bonus to moving silently while in stealth mode. Somewhat nullified by his incredibly low agility score.
  • There wasn't actually anyone named Elroy B. Tolken trialled for the Watergate scandal. It is likely that the people writing his backstory were inspired by Frank Sturgis.
  • His skillset is largely overshadowed by other mercs such as Jimmy Upton, Megan "Sparky" Roachburn, and Anita "Mouse" Backman, who can do everything he does, with none of the drawbacks, while still remaining affordable. Which is too bad, because his backstory is pretty awesome.
