Examinee #16 during the Hunter exam. Tompa is nicknamed the "Rookie Crusher" by other candidates with more experience taking the exam. Tompa has taken the exam for 35 consecutive terms (given that the Hunter exam can only be taken by someone who is at least 12, it means that Tompa either was lying, sneaked in the first two times, or that the age limit is a new rule), but has somehow never managed to pass. He often brags of his experience to those taking the Hunter Exam for the first time and then offers them a helping hand. Of course, this is merely subterfuge as he takes a perverse pleasure in sabotaging their attempts to get the license.
