Psychological Characteristics

Personality: A man with an genius level IQ and a remarkable talent for disorganization, Thomas is a pretty abrasive person, sometimes bordering the cynical, and with a serious lack of patience with nearly everything, making him a person hard to warm up with at first. Despite that, Thomas is able to work as a team player and most of the time will volunteer to do any tasks that he thinks are the ones that he will make the greatest difference.

Added with that, he has the habit of never telling people the true reasons behind his actions, and more often than not he won't admit helping someone because he took pity on them. Ultimately, Thomas is the kind of person who has his heart in the right place, but is too stubborn or proud to allow himself to act like it.

He constantly seeks to improve himself both mentally and physically, and views a problem or a situation as a challenge to be overcome, although he tends to skip or avoid as much as possible the things that don't concern on interest him directly, making small tasks like organizing his possessions an annoyance.

  • Likes: Building gadgets, mechanics, challenging himself. fidgeting with any electronics/mechanisms, tinkering in general
  • Dislikes: People who repeats themselves,
  • Goals: Become a distinguished engineer

History

Family (or Creators)

William Mort (Father) Kathleen Mort (Mother)

Pre-RP

Born in Nepleslia, Thomas lived a fairly safe childhood, taking interest in engineering since he was little thanks to his fathers job, who owned a small repair shop in Funky City that managed to keep his family sustained. Since he was young, he constantly tried to build new gadgets with the help of his father, who was his mentor and idol, and later on did that by himself as a hobby.

Although he could have gotten through school easily and smoothly, Thomas struggled with his grades for most of his life, having a small amount of friends for someone of his age at the time, making his own little gadgets his friends.

By his teens, Thomas had already eliminated every doubt about what path he wanted to take for his life: becoming an engineer, and quickly set his mind to the goal. That was also the time that he started to work at his family repair store, improving greatly as a mechanic. When he was nineteen, a yeat after (finally) graduating from high school, Thomas joined the NMSC, easily qualifying for engineer training.

RP

NSS Altomir

Thomas' first mission started during the Rok'Very offensive, when the spaceship he was aboard was shot down by the occupied planet's orbital defense grid. The marine only had time to get inside his Hostile power armor and board one of the escape pods and make it 'safely' to the surface, landing inside an abandoned warehouse.

Shortly after, he made contact with another marine, who he teamed up with until he arrived at a nearby subway station from where a rally message was being broadcast. Upon reaching the place, Thomas was surprised that the broadcaster was no less than the legendary Flint Vanderhuge.

Soon after that, he and the other marines who had gathered in the subway station fended off an attack by NMX infantry and another by NMX power armor. About to be facing a third attack, the marines were ordered to pull out in a procured truck, fleeing into the subway tracks and fending another attack by NMX crabs. After surviving the third and last attack, they reached an abandoned bunker where they managed to regroup and rearm.

The day following, the marines attacked and destroyed a landed NMX ship under the leadership of Vanderhuge, taking out its anti-ship weapons and allowing the friendly ground forces to attack Bal'Sharok and retake it. After the attack was over, he was shipped back to planet Nepleslia, but not after witnessing the mass genocide and what little was left of the planet.
