Thomas Smith, is the eldest child of John Smith and his wife Helen, and the older brother of Jennifer and Amy Smith. He is a true believer in the Third Reich and strives to exceed his father's expectations.

Biography

Season One

Unfortunately for both him and his family, he has a congenital disease which will slowly weaken and paralyze him.

Season Two

His father killed his doctor in order to prevent this being reported (after the doctor gave him the chance to poison Thomas so as to conceal the condition), as failing to report it would have been a crime. He hatched a plan to have Thomas "kidnapped" by the resistance while in Amazonia, which would be the cover for him to be taken somewhere where he could live out his life. In the end, though, after discovering for himself that he was incurably ill, Thomas self-reported himself to the Reich and willingly left with them to be purged (euthanized) as a "defective", promising not to mention to anyone that his family had been aware of his illness.

Appearance & Personality

Thomas holds a great deal of respect for his father, to the point of idolizing him. He also displays a desire and drive to excel in the Hitler Youth. However, he seems to lack the ruthless and cold nature required to be a successful Nazi, and his personality quite differs from the coldness that his father possesses.

Relationships

Thomas Smith has several good relationships with many different characters throughout the series. He has a strong relationship with his parents, especially his father, Obergruppenführer John Smith. He has a good relationship with his younger siblings, Jennifer and Amy, but at times they can tease and annoy each other. He also has a good relationship with Joe. He also has a strong relationship with Juliana, as he went to her to help him talk about his disability, meaning that he trusts in Juliana very much.

Notes & Trivia

  • In reality, Landouzy-Dejerine's syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder, meaning if his father and mother do not express the disorder (which they don't) there is no way Thomas could exhibit FSHD, except for de novo mutation (up to 1/3 of cases), incomplete penetrance (possibly up to 5% of adult cases of FSHD), and/or variable expressivity. It is also possible that his paternal uncle was misdiagnosed (or had a different disorder) due to an imperfect understanding of muscular dystrophic conditions.
    • Thomas' symptoms do not match Landouzy-Dejerine's syndrome. Absence Seizures, his main symptom, are caused primarily by some forms of epilepsy. However, given the aggressive purging of anyone with "defects" by the Nazi regime, it is possible that they either do not know about or do not bother to distinguish between different disorders. This possible misdiagnosis could also explain how Thomas could have such a condition genetically when his father is only a carrier and he thus shouldn't have the named disorder.
