Thom is sort of relaxed when it comes to appearance. He typically wears some form of white shirt with green pants, and occasional splashes of orange. He enjoys wearing clogs, despite the fact that they look like women shoes for the “sole” reason that they are exceedingly comfortable. Thom has been known to wear some ridiculous hats. Old favorites are Apples with Arrows shot through them, a Jester hat complete with bells and a clown nose, and on rare happenings, a bowl of Ramen. Nobody knows why he wears a bowl of Ramen, but Thom certainly isn't telling.

Personality & Mannerisms

Disposition: Neutral Good

Thom often wears the facade of a carefree fool. He will make bad jokes, shrug off irritation and intimidation and do his best to make people laugh, even if it is at himself. He is also a great lover of music, and sings baritone rather constantly. He has a tendency to make references to obscure/unpopular songs and plays, but doesn't care if he is the only one who gets it. He is frequently seen lounging by a roadside singing or strumming his instrument. He is a great adorer of beauty, be it male, female, or vegetable.

As such, Thom has a fondness for Alfar and Svartalfar. Oddly enough, Thom is uncomfortable around the furred races, and is loath to approach them. Perhaps it has something to do with his missing pet Rocker, Mr. Mellencamp?

Thom is terribly unsubtle, but is working to improve that. He is a big fan of tact, but tact is not a big fan of him. Thom is a romantic at heart, but is afraid of commitment. As such, any romantic relationships he has are doomed to failure, with a high chance of humiliation and hilarity.


Age: 19
Birthdate: April 4
Birthplace: Geffen
Occupation: Archer, aspiring Clown

Son of a Mage Father and a Huntress Mother, Thom manifested an affinity for lightning magic at an early age and studied briefly at the Geffen School of Magic. Thom was an average student who was disinterested in traditional magic, but was fascinated at the thought of “weaving” magic, as seen in the performances of the Bard/Dancer class. He was good with lightning based magic, but was terrible with all other forms of traditional magic (Fire, Earth, Water, etc.). He was kicked out after attempting a magic “experiment” with a friend of his, the Dean's granddaughter. Details of this “experiment” are sealed, and Thom is not willing to share. Suffice to say, it ended badly.

After being kicked out of Magic School, Thom's father disowned him and kicked him out of the house. His mother quietly visited him, and taught him the basics of archery with the suggestion that he eventually try his hand at being a bard. Thom is currently practicing his archery, and studying bardic lore at every available opportunity. He isn't fond of being a bard, but likes the musical connection and the chance to study the effects of magical songs.
