Thomas was born in Denmark, in Esbjerg. Esbjerg is a city filled with fishermen and business men, Thomas's father taught him how to fish at a very young age, Thomas's father worked on a container ship, so he was rarely home, but when he was, he spent alot of time with Thomas, due to his absence to his family, he made sure that the time he had with Thomas was spent carefully and efficient.
Thomas was sad that he never really got to see his dad, cause he was always traveling with the container company, making deliveries all over the world, there was one good thing about it though, his father always brought back souvenirs, he gave Thomas a pocket watch, ingraved with their family last name and a picture of them all in it, Thomas didn't get it right away, cause his father believed that he was too young to take care of it and keep it safe.
Something did happen to Thomas the years leading up to his trip with his father, and it involves his uncle.... Stay tuned
Thomas's 21st birthday
It was Thomas's birthday, and a few family members would come to celebrate it.
His uncle would come to his birthday for the first time in years, his uncle was in the military, so he would always be busy doing missions overseas - but he was finally gonna come by.
Thomas and his uncle talked over a couple of beers, on how the military life was, his uncle praised it cause it was the only thing he ever knew, Thomas thought about joining the military - but he wasn't too sure about it.
His uncle showed him a couple of pictures of him and his mates from one of his tours to Afghanistan - This might be what Thomas always have been looking for - A family, brotherhood and people that he could depend on.
Thomas joined the military
It was Thomas's first week, and he was already falling in love with it, he made friends for life.
Thomas was trained in hand to hand combat, survival, how to handle all sorts of firearms and extensive medical training.
When thomas was done with bootcamp, he had serveral trips to Afghanistan and made it back alive, things were rough down there, he saved lives and took lives, in the years that Thomas was with the military, it changed him.
They were scheduled to leave next week....
When the new week arrived, Thomas father came and picked him up from his apartment, on the way down to the habor, Thomas's father tells him a little about the trip they are gonna go on, he tells him that they are gonna be making container deliveries in Chernarus, and after the recent events, it might get a little dangerous, Thomas did hear a little about the Civil war on the news a while back, but it was so far from home, that he didn't really pay attention to it then.
But before Thomas and his father would arrive in Chernarus, they had to make some deliveries in Norway.
The trip was going fine, Thomas was having a great time with his father, they had a rest day in Norway.
Next day their journey towards Chernarus was going good, they day started out as any other day, whilst the Captain did he morning call outs on deck, Thomas was enjoying a smoke on the guard railing of the ship, taking in the sight of the beautiful sea.
Later that day...
They were just about to enter the sea belonging to Chernarus, when Thomas and his father heard over the intercom that everybody should get on deck and help put down the rescue boats, at the time they had no idea what was going on, but they listened and ran towards the deck, when they got there, the crew of 5 people was standing there, confused and scared.
The Captain then came down and told them about the engine failure that had, the piston rods that drove the engine shattered and broke, one of the pistons hit a gasoline pipe and tore it's way out of the ships side, it had left a giant hole and they were taking in alot of water, unfortunetly for them, the rescure boat was on the side, where the incident had happend.
Thomas's father was scared, he grabbed Thomas and told him that everything is gonna be alright, he then says - I think it's about time i give you this son - he then handed him the pocket watch.
Him and his father were rushed into the boat that now was ready to be released, as soon as they got into the boat.... BAAAM a explosion hits them, everybody got thrown into the water, there was only one survivor and that was Thomas, everybody died except him he was passed out in the water, and was washed on shore, all alone in Chernarus, his only goal now was to use the survial tactics his father had taught him, and try to get out of there alive.
