Tom Roy Torrance is a 27-year-old government politician who enjoys reading, relaxing and extreme ironing. He is exciting and bright, but can also be very rude and a bit untrustworthy.
He is a British Christian who defines himself as gay. He has a post-graduate degree in philosophy, politics and economics.
Physically, Tom is not in great shape. He needs to lose quite a lot of weight. He is tall with cocao skin, brown hair and blue eyes.
He grew up in a working class neighbourhood. He was raised by his father, his mother having left when he was young.
He is currently single. His most recent romance was with a lab assistant called Leith Reagan Keir, who was the same age as him. They broke up because Tom got fed up of being taken advantage of.
Tom has one child with ex-boyfriend Leith: Cierra aged 7.
Tom's best friend is a government politician called Maud Senior. They get on well most of the time. He also hangs around with Rosamond Johnson and Chantal Thomas. They enjoy planking together.
