Background:
Tom was a pretty normal kid with more than his fair share of curiosity and a knack for getting into trouble, like any other boy his age. Since he could remember himself he was sneaking into places he shouldn't be just to see what hidden treasures they hold inside. And without a doubt, that creepy apartment where "Jason" and "Jennifer" (if those were their real names) lived was somewhere he wasn't supposed to be. Most people value their privacy, but those two were obsessed with it. The door was always locked, and the curtains always shut. Attempts to ask them about themselves were answered with a friendly yet firm wall of silence. That drove him mad.
Every evening he would hide in the bushes and try to peep into their apartment, until one night they left the curtains slightly open. What he saw amazed him. They both changed into black body suits with bright red "X"s on the front, "Jason" picked up a metallic staff and they crept out of the fire escape. They were two of The X-Men that the news couldn't stop talking about!
The following morning he confronted Jennifer on the stairway, and told her what he had seen. "That's impossible", she exclaimed. "The windows are polarized". He described hers and Jason's every move the previous evening. Jennifer was shocked. Jennifer raised her hand as if she suddenly got an idea. "Who made my watch?" She asked him. "The inscribing says Bradford and Co.", he answered, puzzled. "The inscribing is just several microns large," she said "No normal man could see it without a microscope. You're one of us."
Three months later, Tom now lives with The Unlikely X-Men, trying to learn as much as he can on his new found powers, and despite the adults' warnings, getting himself into bigger and bigger trouble.

Personality:
Even though he tries to put on a brave face, Tom is basically a small and scared child who is struggling to understand himself and the world around him, that has seemingly gone crazy. He is the youngest of the Unlikely X-Men, and as such is often dismissed as a child. He has found some sort of a kinship with X-Cavate and with X-Alt who he views as a sort of friendly school teacher.

Appearance:
Tom looks like any normal fourteen year old. He is slightly short for his age (1.35m) and is neither slim nor fat. His hair is a brown mess that will succumb to no comb and his hazel eyes radiate innocence. He prefers to dress in jeans and T-shirt but sometimes will give in to X-Quisite's attempts to give him a more "dignified" look.

Powers/Tactics:
Tom has extremely keen senses. He can see, hear and smell things most human beings wouldn't even notice. He does not join the Unlikely X-Men on field missions, and will run and hide at the first sign of combat.

Notes:
Tom is built up of 100 points, and has 90 points of disadvantages. Besides the large amount of disadvantages, he could easily be a character in a standard heroic game (75 base points base + 25 from disadvantages with 65 extra points in disadvantages) or even a competent normal (50 base points + 50 from disadvantages with 40 extra points in disadvantages).
