Young Tommy was born during a heavy springtime storm in the lovely city of Cambridge, Ohio on April 1st and shortly after was abandoned at a local Catholic church. Fifteen years later he was a social outcast and a mocking tool for everyone at his local high school. During his sophomore year he met the new girl, Claire, almost an instant click between them and they were inseparable. Over the next two years they planned further and further for each other hoping to one day be a newlywed couple. Tom was first invited to the preforming arts by Claire and instantly loved the attention he got from being front and center after years of being in the shadow of his peers.
The day of their graduation from sophomore year Tom proposed something to Claire, they get in her car and run as far east as it'll take them. That night they snuck out and got into her car and drove, all the way to San Francisco. Tommy got into a job as a stunt double for a small name company making action movies, and as soon as he started tasting his success he celebrated a little too much and took something he shouldn't have from the wrong people.
A few weeks later he got a big break and was offered a position to travel to a small country named "Chernarus" to film a movie about the Russian Mafia. During his stay in Chernogorsk he received a video call about his thievery back in the states. A very disgruntled Hispanic man let him know that he fucked up and the only way he could repay is to pay with blood. The phone camera flipped to a stream of his fiance tied to a chair with two men standing behind her. Screaming his name was the last thing she said as the man fired a round into her skull and ended the video with a simple "Puta."
Two weeks later the recording of the movie was completely halted by civilians who had heard rumors of soldiers attacking civilians, so they halted their recording and went to the nearest US Forces possible. Upon reaching where they were stationed they had found all the US forces picked up in a hurry and rushed evac and the only time they'd be seeing them was bombing runs. Completely abandoned with the rest of the Rural settlements. Tom decided that he was going to hide as far into the woods as he could while still being able to support himself on the environment.
