Ryan has no room for differences of opinion in his precious Rapture. I hope the whole place comes crashing down around his ears.
― Thomas[src]

Thomas was a citizen of Rapture and a convict residing in Persephone. Thomas was charged with speaking against Andrew Ryan and his policies, and as a result, was sentenced to the Persephone, where he completely lost hope.[1] His corpse can be found lying on a table in the cafeteria of the Holding Wing next to his audio diary and a large variety of alcohol.
