Thomas is an immigrant from the Congo. He is a very friendly, good, honest, musical and although having an honourable soul he's as shrewd a criminal as any of the others. Due to his African upbringing, he doesn't understand the British way of life.
Thomas and Pandora fall in love reasonably quickly after Thomas arrives in Bristol. They have big plans together but the relationship becomes more and more strained because Thomas' mother doesn't like Pandora and because Pandora had been havong an affair with Cook.
