Thomas is described as a lighthearted, someone who prefers to keeps everything cool with courtesy in contrast to his unpredictable trickster behind. His ability to trick peoples makes him think everyone around him is stupid, causes him to be a bit cocky. Despite all the lack of con-man background, he shows care towards people who close to him and tends to be loyal and trustable.
Like every criminals on his age, Thomas is very ambitious and wanted to get recognized as more than just a figure in the crowd of the city criminals. Over the course of the story, he realizes that his ambition can become his main weakness and always carefully while "climbing the ladder".
Thomas really enjoyed Vice City nightlife where he expand his connection, as a refreshment, and one of many way to "show his talent".

Rockstar goal is to create a "typical and classic protagonist of the franchise" amidst the different game theme while avoiding the trend of bland personalities of a character like this.
