Is Tommy from Eyes of the Dragon in a way related to Tom Cullen from The Stand? In Eyes at the end Tommy and Dennis go South to find Flagg and at some point confront him again. Could it have been possible that something happened allowing Tommy to continue hunting for Flagg even after the confrontation? Maybe he found a way to hide his thoughts from Flagg somewhere along in that journey and that is why when we meet him in The Stand he is thought of as to be Mentally Challenged. Perhaps it is all just so that he could defeat Flagg with out being seen.

...welcome buddy...not far fetched a'tall, just something that raised your curiosity and we're all about that here at SK Central...as a long time reader though, and a big fan of the "Big Dummy"(for reasons that will become obvious the longer you're here), IMO-no, absolutely no relation. Cullen WAS "dim" mentally, and his journey past RF at the latter end of the novel, played wonderfully well into King's basic White vs Dark theme...Tom had been "touched by the hand of God"....where his "simple-mindedness" became a plus, rather than a drawback...

Been twenty years or so since I last read this, don't remember but it would seem to necessitate a lot of plot strangeness, just to even be a long shot. That said, I'm intrigued. We know that Garlan is mentioned in the DT and if I'm not mistaken wasn't it a "King Roland" before king Tommy in eyes of the dragon? The timing would seem to argue against it but is it possible Dennis and Tommy found themselves looped back through time and ended up being the motive force to establish the force of holy warriors
Known as Gunslingers. Nah.. prolly not, but that's the kind of thing this place is good for. Oh and welcome to the board, it's a lot of fun here. Admittedly my idea of fun is a little skewed but hey..
