Tonega was a vicious, hateful rat known for loving violence and unnecessary bloodshed. He carried an axe, which he dubbed "Gutshredder", and later challenged Gormall because he believed that the older weasel wasn't showing him the proper respect, due to questioning his choice of weaponry earlier.

A small scuffle followed, and Tonega was easily butchered by the far swifter, far more experienced fighter.
