Not much is known about Tomi's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he had a sister named Yumiko. Judging by his accent, he was born and grew up somewhere in England.
At some point, Tomi moved to the United States and became a thoracic surgeon. He and Yumiko hadn't spoken in years even before the world ended.
Upon the outset of the outbreak, Tomi left a voicemail for Yumiko and drove east out of Chicago. Running out of gas 20 miles north of Charleston, he eventually met some good people and joined the community that was established in the latter city. There, he started working as a baker at Elodie's Treats and posted a photo of his sister on the Wall of the Lost, alongside a message that reads: "Have you seen my sister Miko? Contact Tomi at H."
As Yumiko, Eugene, Ezekiel, and Princess are about to escape the Commonwealth Detainment Center, they come across the Wall of the Lost. Princess notices Tomi's post and points it out to Yumiko, who stares at her brother's message in shock before deciding that she has to stay.
Yumiko enters Elodie's Treats and tells one of the employees that she’s looking for someone. Tomi enters from a back room holding a cake. Yumiko greets him and he drops the cake, shocked to see his sister.
As the siblings catch up, Tomi explains that he found the Commonwealth very early on, and that he's happy working as a baker instead of a surgeon. Yumiko asks if there's any possibility of bringing her people to the Commonwealth. Tomi says anything is possible if you follow the rules.
Yumiko meets Tomi at the train station and marvels that he chose not to be a doctor. Tomi tells Yumiko he's happy with his life, and makes Yumiko promise to keep his true profession a secret. Yumiko mentions that she has a meeting with Governor Milton. Soldiers come out of nowhere and haul Tomi away.
This list shows the victims Tomi has killed:
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies
Not much is known about Tomi's relationship to his sister, but he kept a photo of her during the apocalypse and posted it on the Wall of the Lost, hoping to find her again, showing that he cares about her.
Seeing Tomi's post is the reason Yumiko decides to stay at the Commonwealth, showing that she cares about her brother just as much.
When they reunited, he says she's changed. After the outbreak, Tomi fled Chicago and ended up stranded about 20 miles north of Charleston, West Virginia. He linked up with some good people, and he's been at the Commonwealth ever since. He hushes Yumiko when she brings up his history as a surgeon and tells her not to ruin this for him.

- Tomi is described as a "long-time member of a group recently discovered by our heroes," referring to his sister Yumiko and her allies.
