To be exact,
Pidona slums in the bottom left house. Normally the character won't
enter that house. To get inside, go to Thomas' House in northern Pidona.
Thomas' old father will rush to you. After a few seconds he'll move
away. Go to the top left room and talk to Thomas. He won't join yet.
Leave and go south. You'll see Thomas leave. Go in the southern armor
shop. You'll see Thomas head to the slums. Then go into the bottom left
house. He's inside. In Ellen and Sara's scenario, Thomas can be picked
up at Roanne Bar, but he will leave once reaching Pidona.
Background Info: Originally from
Pidona, Thomas was been raised by an rich, grouchy man. For most part
his childhood has been happy with Julian, Ellen and Sara. Now that he is
older, he is ready to take on his father's business. The old man
requested two things from Thomas - that he sees the world and to find
Muse. He is light and breezy in both appearance and personality. There
is nothing heavy about him. More calm than Julian, Thomas thinks before
Other Info: Why does everyone think
Thomas sucks? He's awesome! So he STARTS weak, but he shoots up later in
the game. Thomas' default is a merchant class so he will gain weapon and
magic skill quickly. His favorite weapon is a spear but he can also be
used as a Bow user. As an NPC, Thomas will automatically have the Squall
spell. On the downside he has dexterity as good as Ellen (who is bad to
begin with) and he's not very strong. He makes a very good magic user as
he will gain WP faster than most. Get him if you want a spear user other
than Sharl and Nora, a bow user other than Sara or Paul, and a water
magic user other than Undine. Thomas needs to be in the party to get
Fullbright to show up.
