"Son,you live under a tough shadow, and this bounty hunting ain't gonna get you no where. Stay here and you'll be sheriff in a few years, ain't nothin' wrong with being a deputy. "Thomas studies the man before him, as the star laid in his hand before he tossed it to the desk. "Ain't no shame tryin' either " Thomas replies.."And ain't nothin' here now that Becky's dead. "

Thomas was born at Wolf's point, Montana, near. Born to a father who was a sheriff and a mother who did her best to keep her family together. He was the youngest of three children.

When he was 15 years of age, he became a Wolf's point Deputy where he served with a good name.

His beloved Becky, a young gal that had waves of honey blonde and green eyes, they were due to wed. She died of Influenza two weeks before they were to become man and wife. Not really a secret but he doesn't talk much about it. A lovely young woman aspiring to be a teacher, daughter of a cattle rancher. He was with her the day she died in his arms, a day that will forever be imprinted in his life and memories though eventually he will let go and move on.

Hired on at the Circle C & Diamond D Ranch - Working with Horses. Which he seems to have a good strong hold with. Not a big drinker , though he will have one once in awhile. Perfers the name Thomas or even called Gatlin , over the nickname Tom but he wont' let the air out of you if you do happen to slip up and call him Tom.
