It would advisable to read the biography portion first before the personality so you will understand why he acts the way he does.
Happy and optimistic, Thomas enjoys socializing with friends and those he can easily get long with.
However, he can be hard-headed, and will question authority when it does not sit well with him. It has gotten him in trouble more than once already.

Despite being a total problem child to his family (and commander), his mannerisms in respecting the elderly remains intact.

Thomas was born and raised in a rich household in the Philippines, his parents wishing only for the best of their only son, sending him to an all-boys catholic institution,
hoping that it would refine him into a hardworking, independent man that would someday take over the family business. Life didn't go the way they planned, though.
Thomas, unknown to them, was a pampered and spoiled brat. Whiny, rebellious, and believed in the principle that anything and everything could be done for him.
His academic progress was another problem for his parents; Thomas apparently survived school-life attaching himself to the "most reliable and hardworking"
student in his class, making him answer his homework, seat works and projects for the entire school year. A certified leech, as his teachers reported.
In the end his father, tired of seeing his son waste his life away, forced enrolled him to Academy Milizia-- a school recommend by his father's friend for it's disciplinary ways.
At this point of Thomas and father argue until to the point that his father threatened to remove his right to his inheritance.
Thomas, unable to do anything after being threatened, ends up going to Milizia against his will. At first he dislikes being in the Academy
but that changes quickly over time (he realizes that being in the academy isn't so bad and can be fun and a good learning experience.)

> Instead of scowling at people, he does the pucker face.
> He keeps a journal and a polaroid as means of documenting his days in the Academy (per request of his father).
> The subjects he was actually excellent at was Gym, Journalism and Asian History. The other subjects he passed by depending on his "target".
> He's good at sports/activities that needed muscle-power but got tired easily.
> Thomas owns a gas mask which he used to wear back in the Philippines due to the polluted air in the metropolis. He uses it when venturing outside the vicinity.
1. Thomas is a pampered brat who likes to whine alot during his first few months in the Academy but because of Commander Esteban he matures into
a young adult capable of making decisions for himself instead of relying on others. It's a very slow process of breaking the brat from his pampered shell. ;;;
This is a character development scenario that may happen once Thomas is officially enrolled into the Academy.
Thanks to *ctrl-G for giving me permission to use Esteban!
2.His "journal" will be posted here, mostly about interactions with other people and missions he'll participate in. (Doodles of RP when it gets intense LOL)
3. About his age: 17 seems to be a young age for a person to go to a Military Academy but the average age of graduating in High School
in the Philippines would be 17-18 (I graduated HS at 17 so---) years old. Children here start attending school at an age of 4-5 years old
where they spend 3 years in Kindergarden, 7 years in Elementary/Primary (some schools have 6 years, majority have 7) and 4 years in High school/Secondary.
So it's safe to assume that Thomas completed his Secondary studies and was enrolled to Milizia right after graduation. (Kinda like college---)
