Thomas was born in 1923, to a moderately prominant family in Freedom City. However his parents decline in health and old age, he ended up becoming the soul heir of the modest estate of his family by the time he was sixteen. He didn't know what else to do, he had a year left of school to go. But considering his age, he became a ward of the state till he turned eighteen. His parents didn't have any other living relatives. But the road to power all started during world war II, the year was 1941 and Thomas Underwood signed up to be apart of an experimental program to create super heroes to help in the war. And Thomas Underwood succeeded in survivng the process, that few did.
He gained special powers from the process, and he had alot of success during the war. Working heavily with the Allies of Freedom, on many of their missions. When the war was over in 1945, he recieve several commodations. However the experiment weakened his heart, and the war caused a knee injury that never healed again. He went back to Freedom City, and married his childhood sweet heart Mary Patrick. Starting up a family, his wife gave birth to two beautiful daughters Elizabeth Shannon, and Olivia. For a time he continued to be a super hero, and even had a short stint with the Freedom League. However his own growing heart condition, forced him to leave and change his priorities. Especially once his children were born.
Taking the majority of his estate, he built and opened up the Underwood Hotel chain. Which has become very popular, not only in freedom city but in other cities too. The Underwood hotel is unfortunately a pricey place, so those of the middle class are unlikely to find it affordable (DC of 14-16 depending on the room desired). His wife died of a heart complication, in 1965 which left him devestated at her loss. And soon picked up alcoholism as a hobby, loosing himself in the mind numbing effects it provided him. His two daughters couldn't bare to see him like this, and they helped out with his hotel while trying to help get him to recover. It took two years of dedicated effort before thomas started to come out of his shell, once more but he has had to battle his alcoholism ever since. But with the love and dedication of Elizabeth, and Olivia he has stayed away from the drink.
By 1970 Elizabeth went on to help run the business, while Olivia fell in love with a Mathew Dunlow. Who would later give birth to Joshua Dunlow, who would later become known as Omega 2. Inhereting some of his grandfather's legacy of power. Today Thomas is considered one of the most eligible bachelors in Freedom City, and with the success of his business rather wealthy too. He lives a jet setting life style, visiting and exploring new destinations around the world. He is also quite the ladies man, a charming and distinguished gentlemen who always seems to have a pretty face or two at either arm. However he is not a promiscuous man, so he has resolved to wait. If he can find the right woman for him, in the mean time he enjoys showing his female companions a great time without sex. One of his more closest friends, is the enchanting singer Ravina Sovienik otherwise known as Muse . In reality though he knows about her powers, and her mysterious origin. And has helped her establish a new identity for herself in this world.
