Thomas grew up on a rural farm in North Dakota. He is no stranger to hard work, putting in long hours helping tend the crop and fix equipment. Being a avid firearm collector and hunter has made him an excellent marksman. Repairing tractors and farm trucks has given him plenty experience to know how to get a vehicle running top notch with little tools, this also includes his carpentry abilities as the fences and barns are always deteriorating. At the age of 22 Thomas left the farm seeking adventure and service by joining the UN in providing medical support in foreign countries. He spent three years treating people in Africa for diseases and mistreatment by the local tribes/gangs. Once the zombie outbreak started, his team was redeployed to chernarus where they were quickly overwhelmed by the sheer number of patients and those who were turning from the infection. Having survived an immediate evacuation at the hospital he was stationed in, Thomas had to fend for himself as he watched the last helicopter leave him behind. He has been wandering the wasteland ever since, helping anyone he can find. While he is determined to be a good person and never turn to the savagery that so many others have turned to, He will defend himself and his friends if he is put in that situation.
Thomas decided the best thing to do with his time was to try and help any other survivors he could find by setting up a community center. Things were going well, people were showing up and appreciating the hospitality of Thomas and his loyal assistant max. But the positive impact the center was having on the local area would not last long. Soon there were groups who would begin to abuse the kindness of the center. Hording all of the medical supplies for themselves and vandalizing the building. After having been raided and his assistant tortured for no reason, Thomas decided that maybe living life off the land and moving about, rather then settling in one area, was a better choice. He has been roaming the land and traveling between trade posts and other friendly settlements ever since the destruction of the community center, attempting to help those he could.
