❥ Family: Brandon, Jake, Michael, Max (Identical brothers), Roxie (Younger sister), Hil (Wife), Lacey, Luna, Leslie (Children)
Tom is Roxie's older brother and a large part of the main universe. Unlike his other four brothers, Tom lived with his little sister and grew up with her. When the family separated them, he never forgave himself for not being able to speak up to save her and continually has nightmares into adulthood. As a teenager he dated Rose who ended up cheating on him weeks before he was planning on proposing to her. He eventually dated and married another close friend of Roxie's, Hil, and the two gained custody over Rose's daughter while she chose to run away with her then-girlfriend. Though he knew he may be poly, he never understood why his sister had so many members in her harem but tried to support her. After watching a sad Movie, Roxie broke down to Tom and Brandon stating that she was terrified to lose them and was afraid she already had. For almost a year, Tom and Brandon lived with Roxie before moving back in to their own places again. Tom eventually came out to Roxie and Brandon, stating that he had a crush on his best friend and had no idea what to do. The three of them plotted and later, Tom introduced his family to his boyfriend, August.
Like the other four quintuplets, Tom's personality is distinct -- but even moreso due to the separation between his siblings for many years. For the most part, Tom is caring and empathetic in every sense of the word. When he has an opinion, however, he's quick to defend it regardless of whether or not he's in the wrong. Even though he appears sweet, he is inflexible and has trouble submitting to others even when he's in the wrong. If Roxie is having a marital dispute, Tom is very quick to come to her defense, even to a violent degree.
