Character Bio

Tom Mason photo
Not much is known about Tom Mason's childhood. His father owned a hardware store and was apparently an angry drunk. It is implied that he was abusive towards Tom.

Tom met his future wife Rebecca, sometime before he attended grad school. While he attended grad school, they lived in an apartment in Boylston, later joking that the landlord was attracted to Rebecca and was very helpful because of it. Sometime later they got married. He became an American History professor at Boston University. They eventually had three children: Hal, Ben, and Matt. Rebecca Mason did most of the cooking as Tom was a bad cook. He did however like to cook on Saturdays because he liked the smell of bacon and hash browns. During the initial attacks he joined up with the Massachusetts Militia to protect his family. His wife was murdered at the hands of the invading aliens and his son, Ben, was captured by them. Tom took it upon himself to protect the rest of his family. Tom met Dr. Anne Glass after helping her treat a patient and over time the two became close.

A former Boston University teacher, he becomes the second-in-command of the Second Massachusetts resistance, a roughly 300 strong group of civilians and fighters fleeing Boston, which was lost to alien invaders.

Tom was elected President of the New United States, but continues to fight alongside the 2nd Mass, seeing himself as a war leader who belongs on the front lines. Anne and Tom married and later have a daughter, Alexis (Lexi). Due to interference by the invaders while a pregnant Anne was held hostage, Lexi is a hybrid of human/alien DNA. Season 4 finds Tom held in a concentration camp similar to the Jewish Ghettos during World War 2.
