Thomas Kalmaku was a young Inuit engineer at Ferris Aircraft, also the employer of test pilot Hal Jordan. For a while, he was nicknamed "Pieface" (see below), however this has not been used for some time. He had a girlfriend named Tegra. They later married and had a son and a daughter but later separated from his wife.
Kalmaku was one of the few people who knew Hal Jordan's secret, and kept a journal of Green Lantern's adventures. He often assisted the hero, or required rescuing. Hal had considered him as a replacement Green Lantern for Sector 2814, and the Guardians of the Universe even offered him a Green Lantern Ring (which he declined, famously saying "naw").
Kalmaku was revealed to be one of the "Chosen" who formed the New Guardians. He had the superpower to bring out the best in people. However, he decided to leave the New Guardians to be with his family. He loses his powers when he leaves the team.
This section of the history takes place during Flashpoint, a massive crossover event set in an alternate timeline to the mainstream DCU. History was completely changed when Professor Zoom finally found a way to erase his nemesis the Flash without harming his own legacy.
The Flash's changes to reality created a new world where people lives had significantly changed. In this new world, Thomas Kalmaku is still Hal Jordan's friend and mechanic. Kalmaku was involved in the inspection of an alien Abin Sur's crashed spacecraft, Kalmaku and Hector Hammond study the spaceship's stealth technology. After Hal Jordan's death, Kalmaku gives Carol Ferris a gift from Hal telling her he always loved her.
