Thomas Aaron Gunn grew up in a
suburb of San Tobal, California. His father was a science teacher
at the local high school while his mother stayed at home and raised his two
sisters and little brother. Thomas was an intelligent child, with more than his
share of curiosity. He loved to read and write and ask all too many questions.
As he grew up, the shy, slender youth disappeared, replaced by an energetic,
outgoing risk taker. He is handsome and charismatic, helpful traits when trying
to get a good story. When the Chimaera dignitaries began to mysteriously show up
in NYC, his home for the past ten years, the 34 year old reporter knew the story
of the decade, perhaps century had just fallen into his lap.
For years he had been the city’s, let alone the country’s, de facto Chimaera
reporter. He had an in after all, his fiancée a dryad named Thalia. And the
Chimaera didn’t seem to mind his probing and prying at first. When they killed
Thalia five years ago, he started to put some distance between him and ‘them’.
But not all Chimaera are a bad lot, just the ones that killed his would be wife
and well the ‘bad’ ones.
Thomas had a brief stint in the military, but it didn’t last more than 5 years
because of his incessant need to ask too many questions. But that brief career
gave him enough skills to survive or try to survive a fight with one of the
Chimaera. He was appointed to a Council Chair two months before Thalia died and
has since become the honorary spokesman for mankind. A position he abhors and
has been trying to throw onto someone else. It has failed to work so far.
He is close friends to Lucien and Doyle and most of the Giovanni clan as well as
to Natalie Talamasca who he is dying to have a fling with.
