The chief healer of the Cloud-Mother herd as of 12 ABY, Tomla El was present when Drub McKumb attempted to inform Han Solo of the goings-on at and pertaining to Belsavis. He attempted to aid Cray Mingla in attempting to make the dying Nichos Marr more Human than droid.
During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Tomla El joined the New Republic's research effort to cure Mara Jade Skywalker's coomb spore infection, and advised the expectant mother on her health while she was pregnant with her son, Ben.
After the destruction of Ithor, Tomla was working to aid the refugees from Ithor. Luke Skywalker again tried to contact him when Mara suffered an allergic reaction to the synthetic form of Vergere's tears, but was unavailable.
