Tom was born in Osaka, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. But he spent most of his life in the United States, specifically the suburbs of Philadelphia. Both his parents were Japanese, but he carried the first name of an American. His mother passed away when he was just two, and his father was heartbroken. As Tom grew up, his father taught him more about Japan. By the age of 15, Tom was fluent in Japanese. When Tom turned 16, his father gave him the family Katana. Tom knew how important it was to his father, and he had been training with a bokken, a wooden version of a Katana, for years. He also picked up on his Buddhist principles around this age. When he was 17, his father remarried a Japanese-American woman by the name of Anne. Finally, his father found what he had lost for fifteen years. Not long after Tom graduated and moved out of his father's house, he took up many odd jobs, finally finding one as a local shop clerk, but he trained regularly with a pistol and his katana. When he turned 25, he entered a police academy, wanting to help people in any way he could.
Then Day One came, he was still a cadet in the police academy. He was at his house, gardening, when he heard the sirens, when he heard the shots. Tom grabbed whatever he saw useful and got into his car, driving off. But he didn't get far, ditching his car to go on foot. He then led around forty-five refugees to a government evacuation zone. He proceeded to lead more refugees toward the west, believing that safe havens were there. During that time, he became a legend. He now just keeps heading west, in hopes that possibly his father is there.
