Information

History:
Thomas Duke claims to be from New York, and certainly has the accent to back it up. Despite this, he's been living in Chicago for a number of years, working as a mortician until he caught the attention of the Paranormal Division. Although he's "gone out of business" to work as a field agent, he still lives in his funeral home.
A somewhat recent member of the Division, and at first sceptical of getting any more involved that he needed to be, Thomas soon found the Occulted Inheritors of Liberty's fields of study to be engrossing. Taking a keen interest in Elixirs, Relics, and more lately Spirits, he embedded himself into the ranks of the Inheritors, and has made it no secret that he intends to climb further.
Before he joined up with the Division, Thomas was already an accomplished occultist (though he'd certainly use the descriptor "phenomenal" or "outstanding"), though his studies were fairly limited in scope. Preferring to keep no more staff than absolutely necessary, he retains the services of Eleanora Johnson as his assistant.

Spent week 26 and 31 at Niagara Falls, doing research and communing with the spirit of the Falls.

Goals, Ambitions, Desires:
Aside from the obvious pride he puts into his occult labours, Thomas has remained fairly private about his goals and ambitions. As far as anyone can tell, it's likely he'll seek to continue his studies into the supernatural, and seek a more prominent place amongst the Inheritors.

Personality:
As an agent, Thomas is proud and driven, willing to take risks to get the job done. Though he proclaims to be principled, his actions sometimes betray a lacking sense of morality, which has only gotten worse during his tenure as a field agent. When met with failure, he tends to attempt to deflect blame somewhere else.
Though he's social and easy to be around, he ultimately sees his intellectual pursuits as his most important feature, likely saving him from becoming far more vain than he currently is. That said, he clearly enjoys being the focal point of a discussion, or the most striking person in the room.
Thomas is at his most content when there is some occult mystery of problem that he can figure out, revelling both in the affirmation of his talents and in the discovery of new information. Though friendly, he keeps the other agents at a distance when it comes to personal matters.

Retainer:
Eleanora Johnson is a stout African-American woman, who until recently worked as Thomas' assistant in the mortuary. Since the business closed down she's gone on to be a medical student, but she's still on Thomas' payroll as a personal assistant. Has occult interests of a decidedly Thelemic nature.
