Tom, was in a care home, his family were not known within the books, he was in the care home along with Penny and Otto before Otto got taken off to H.I.V.E.

After Otto disappeared, he and Penny became a crime team, stealing from the overly well-off members of society. They were dubbed "The Hoods", which was how they came to attract the attention of H.I.V.E.


In the first part of Aftershock they appear as Raven abduts them and are then taken to H.I.V.E. and placed in the Alpha Stream, incidently ending up in the same years as Otto and his friends. He and Penny quickly start to fit in, and get along well with Shelby, Wing and Laura.
