|—Tommy to Arthur Morgan|
Tommy is a resident of Valentine. Due to his burly appearance, he is viewed by the townsfolk as the local tough guy, and is well-respected in the community for his fighting prowess.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
The bartender begs him to stay out of the fight, but Tommy immediately begins to fight with Javier. Javier punches Tommy in the face, but he is unfazed by Javier's attack and begins to beat Javier to a pulp. Sensing danger, Bill then commands Arthur to save Javier from Tommy. Arthur tries to attack Tommy and initially seems to be no match for him. Tommy easily resists Arthur and throws him out the bar's front window, to then march outside and continue their brawl. After some time of continuous fighting, Arthur gains the upper hand and savagely beats Tommy, nearly killing him.
Later, Tommy can be seen eating with some men inside Smithfield's Saloon. Arthur can try to make amends, but Tommy only replies with incoherence, which seems to indicate brain damage as a result of the beating he received from Arthur.

- Later Arthur can encounter a man outside who saw the fight. The man is angry at him for nearly killing Tommy and states that Tommy has "Gone funny since then", a belief shared by many townspeople in Valentine.
- Arthur can encounter a man in the bar, who remembers Arthur's fight with Tommy. The man states that Tommy "ain't all there. Like the lamp's lit, but there's no one home."
- Mickey states that he was once beaten up by Tommy.
- In "A Quiet Time", it seems that Tommy has aphasia, a disorder resulting impairment of language, speech, and comprehension. This would come from his fight with Arthur, who beats Tommy in the head multiple times after his defeat.
