While their origins are top secret, the brothers speak in notable accents that indicate they were born on an island in the Mediterranean (strongly implied to be Corsica). The brothers served in the French Foreign Legion in Algeria, then as mercenaries in Africa and South America, before changing careers and becoming bankers in Zurich, Switzerland. Unhappy with the world of corporate finance, the brothers found the opportunities available in international terrorism far more suited to their abilities, and joined Cobra. Their specialties are in infiltration, espionage, sabotage, propaganda and corporate law.[1] Like the Crimson Guard that they lead, Xamot and Tomax also lead the "respectable" corporate face of Cobra as the founders, owners, and CEOs of Extensive Enterprises. When not engaged in terrorism, they efficiently manage Cobra's business affairs in shirt and tie. Their preferred mode of attack is through brains over brawn, using the law to serve the purposes of Cobra. They have covered their paper trail and connection to Cobra so well, that it is thought to be impossible to prove a connection between them and the terrorist organization.[1] The twin brothers are mirror images of each other; Tomax's hair is parted on the right side of his head and Xamot's on the left, the piping on their uniforms goes up the opposite side on each twin, and even their names are mirror images of one anotherwith Xamot reading as Tomax in a mirror. The only distinguishing mark between the two is a scar on Xamot's right cheek, which Tomax does not have. Tomax and Xamot share an empathic connection commonly known as "The Corsican Syndrome" in which identical twins are believed to be psychically bonded, in a manner similar to The Corsican Brothers. While this is often useful, as it allows them to communicate wordlessly and finish each others sentences, it is also a liability as they feel each other's pain.
