REAL WORLD INFO, family, work, etc.:


Born in 1475, Thomas hails, as his name suggests, from 'the brook'. He took the surname 'delbruc' to signify his attachment to the small stream that flows near his birthplace. His parents, middle-class farmers on the English border of Scotland, raised him well, with only intermittent formal education intermixed with hands-on training with all sorts of repair, crafting and martial experiences.

His father was "drafted" into helping Edward IV's army attempt to re-take control of Scotland. From all reports Thomas' father was killed during the siege and subsequent sacking of Berwick in 1482.

There after, Thomas was in charge of the family farm, which even though he was capable of supporting the farm, slowly came to ruin as Thomas was forced to spend more time and money caring for his mother as she slowly was killed by the wasting sickness. Forced to sell the family farm to stay at even-keel, Thomas now, due to his broad training, makes a living as a Tinker taking odd repair and crafting jobs, including mercenary-style military missions.

Thomas has since fallen in with a gang of jolly-ruffians (or was that rough-jollykins?) who call themselves "The Tadcastrians" or the "Tadcaster Militia" (which simply designates the region which they usually call home, how creative of them...). With Tadcaster, Thomas has a chance for profit, education (and teaching), and most importantly to him, FUN!
