"You dug up quite a spot here. I'll give you that. This'll do nicely as a home base."
—Tommy talking to Philip.[src]

Tommy is an antagonist featured in The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor. He's the leader of a group of home invaders who attempted to take the Peach Orchard house away from the Blake family and Nick Parsons. He is described as having Tennessee swag, being well over six feet tall, sickly looking, covered in sores, bald, and dressed in shopworn camo-pants, muddy jackboots, and a blood soaked Kevlar flak vest. He served as the secondary antagonist of "Rise of the Governor".


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Tommy's life prior to or as the outbreak began. It is possible that he was friends with the rest of his group before the outbreak began.


At some point after the outbreak, Tommy formed his group.

Rise of the Governor

"Chaos Theory"

Having followed Philip Blake's group for fifty miles outside of Atlanta, Tommy and his group decided to attempt taking The Peach Orchard home away from Philip's group after doing a few days of scouting and recon with Blake's group inside. Having his men quickly round up Penny and Brian Blake, and Nick Parsons, a deal was struck while Philip was pointing an unloaded double-barrel shotgun at Tommy. The deal would allow Philip and his group to leave right then, at the cost of all of their possessions that were not on them at the moment. As Philip's group walked into the field unarmed, Tommy betrayed Philip and his men began hunting his group down. During the hunting that resulted, almost every member of his own group, including himself, were killed by either Philip or Nick (besides "Sonny" and "Cher").


Killed By

After Tommy and his gang of home invaders forced the Blake Family and Nick Parsons out of the Peach Villa, Philip and Nick returned to kill him and his gang. It is unknown if he was killed by Nick or Philip.
