Character Information

Known History

For many years, his earliest memory was in a Las Vegas asylum, bound in restraints, near frenzy, cared for by his Primogen. In moments of lucidity, he would try to remember the face of his caretaker, but it would always fade and escape him...over time, Thomas began to have longer and longer periods of lucidity. He was brought before the Prince, who Acknowledged him as a member of the Ivory Tower. Shortly after, Thomas destroyed a Brujah neonate who was abusing his ghoul, a young girl named Vanessa. As punishment, Thomas was exiled from the domain and told never to return. The ghoul was to be destroyed, until Thomas pleaded to allow him to take her with him. Together, Vanessa and Thomas traveled to Portland, ME. They spent many days in railroad cars, or car trunks. Vanessa was a perfect match for Thomas...his sadistic tendencies and her masochistic streak were seemingly bottomless. She didn't even mind Thomas fits of madness, when he would descend into near catatonia, dragging his fingernails over the wood and carpeting.
Once in Portland, Thomas quickly rose through the ranks of the local Kooks, and showed an aptitude for politics. With the assistance of his clanmates, he staged a mostly peaceful coup of the Malkavian Primogen in 2007. He held the position firmly, out of a mixture of fear and respect. He hit rock bottom, however when he accidentally murdered his beloved Vanessa. With that, he began a slow process of coming back from the edge of Wassail.
Taking a break from the Primogenship in 2011 to focus on his personal development, Thomas began to visit his cousins across the country, seeking for his true place in the world. It seems that his place is back in Portland. Local clan leadership fell short, and Thomas took the position back in April of 2013.

In late 2014, he was called to Wales and recruited to the Malkavian Justicar's office as an Archon to Maris Streck.
