Ah yes, Tony and Tadeusz.
Dare I say the greatest duo to walk the civilized plane?
Well, no, I wouldn't. Because all they can manage to do as a team is infuriate each other. Actually, Tony does most of the pissing off. Tadeusz has a bit of a condition, where he snaps everytime Tony opens his big mouth, and says something absurd. Krieg insists that Tadeusz look after Tony like a brother, keep him out of trouble.
Teddy "The Pole" Tadeusz is the muscle behind Krieg's operation. A skilled classical guitarist, a former jr. olympic gymnast in Poland, and a certified master of the capoeira and Jeet Kune Do martial arts. Sometimes it's hard to tell he's master of anything at all. His temper makes sure of it.
Tony Barbell. A child, really. He has no real fighting skills, and refuses to touch anything related to a gun, despite his chosen career path. The man just doesn't get it. Or does he? No one knows. Especially Tadeusz, he thinks Tony is just another liability. But underneath that massive, childlike thing called a man, is what Krieg would call a genius. Perhaps Krieg knows something Tadeusz does not.
Despite the obvious differences between the two, they can't seem to stop running into Tony's old buddy Jack Herrera. It's too bad really. Because once Jack meets up with KVK and the Captain. Tony and Tadeusz will be in for a bigger fight than they could have anticipated.
What will break first. The scale beneath Tony's feet, or the fleeting glimpse of Tadeusz's sanity?
Time will tell.
