Tom used to be a butcher back in the day, but soon turned on humans for his grisly work. It is suggested that he started butchering humans as an outlaw.
When Red Harlow arrives at the Twin Rocks, some of Tom's boys started some trouble with him and the traveling merchant, "Curly" Shaw. This drew the attention of the rest of Tom's gang as they pulled out their revolvers and rifles. However, Red easily fought them off.
George, who had been hiding behind the shacks, tried to jump out at the end of the fight and finish off Red himself but he was shot and killed as well, thus ending "Bloody" Tom and his gang. Shortly after, Tom and his boys were brought to Widow's Patch in the merchants cart as corpses so Red could collect their bounties.
- He is listed in Sheriff Bartlett's Journal under the Wanted - Dead or Alive section.
- He is called "Bloody" due to previously being a butcher of animals, although he still wears his blood stained apron and gloves.
