|“||Affable and quick to laugh, even in crisis Father Thomas is lifted by his faith rather than weighed down by it. While erudite when he needs to be, he treasures the immediate, pragmatic spiritual needs of life on remote Great Bear Island -- births, baptisms, and funerals, mostly.
Just how and why Father Thomas came to find himself in Pleasant Valley remains a mystery. But it’s clear his devotion to the tiny parish in Thomson’s Crossing has helped bind the community together.
Father Thomas is the primary non-player character in Episode 3 of the Story mode. He is the priest of the church in Thomson's Crossing, and for the entirety of the episode can be found inside the Community Hall.
Soft-spoken and kind, Father Thomas. He is the main quest-giver for the storyline of Episode 3. He cares for the survivors in the Community Hall, while directly or indirectly requesting Astrid's assistance to help the sick and injured.
- Father Thomas is an ordained Christian priest based on the Roman collar he wears, his denomination is either Catholic or Episcopal.
- Father Thomas is the parochial vicar of Thompson's Crossing.
- His church is one of three on Great Bear Island; the other two being the Catholic St. Christopher's Church of Milton, and the Stone Church of Desolation Point and unknown denomination.
- It is suggested Thompson's Crossing was the largest remaining settlement on Great Bear Island prior to The First Flare, because Milton's church was closed due to the towns declining population (as detailed in Buffer Memories and Notes), and the Desolation Point's church seems derelict for years if not decades.
