Thomas Forrester is the first-born child of Ridge Forrester and Taylor Hayes. While Taylor was pregnant, Ridge's brother, Thorne Forrester, wanted to claim Taylor's baby as his since Thorne was in love with Taylor, who was on the outs with Ridge. Soon Taylor and Ridge reunited and named their baby after St. Thomas, where Ridge had originally proposed to Taylor.
Baby Thomas was briefly the target of the infamous Sheila Carter, who wanted to keep her nemesis, Stephanie Forrester, away from her husband, psychiatrist James Warwick: Sheila snipped a lock of Thomas' hair and presented it to Stephanie, threatening to kill Thomas if Stephanie didn't heed Sheila's warning.
Thomas and his family were devastated when Taylor was killed in an altercation with Sheila. Thomas and his twin sisters, Steffy and Phoebe Forrester, eventually gained a stepmother in Ridge's longtime love, Brooke Logan. Thomas, who had also come to depend on Brooke's daughter, Bridget Forrester, was angry when he found out Brooke once had an affair with Bridget's husband, Deacon Sharpe; Thomas downed a whole bottle of vodka and had to be hospitalized.
In high school, Thomas crushed on Caitlin Ramírez, whose father, Hector Ramírez, didn't like rich people. Thomas was relieved when Hector warmed up to him, but soon Thomas had to battle Brooke's son, Rick Forrester, for Caitlin's affections. After Caitlin chose Rick, Thomas started seeing Amber Moore, Rick's ex-wife. Thomas couldn't believe it when Ridge got a restraining order to keep Amber away from him, but Thomas was even more shocked when Amber tried to ruin Ridge's life by getting him to act on his inappropriate feelings for Bridget. Thomas left Amber and reunited with Caitlin.
Thomas bonded with Gabriela Moreno, who had also lost a mother. But after Taylor turned up alive, Thomas campaigned for his parents to remarry. Thomas assured Caitlin she had no reason to be jealous of Gaby, but soon Thomas left Caitlin for Gaby and took a designing job at Spectra Couture, the rival of family design house Forrester Creations, because Forrester denied Thomas an internship. Since Gaby was in the U.S. illegally, Thomas took the advice of attorney Connor Davis and married Gaby in Las Vegas. Thomas accepted Ridge's challenge to a teen fashion showdown; if Ridge won, Thomas had to annul his marriage. Thomas lost the challenge and got the annulment, but made sure Gaby could stay in the country legally.
Thomas went away to college but was furious to learn that Rick had romanced his mother and both his sisters while Thomas was gone. After Phoebe died confronting Rick, Thomas tried to scare Rick into leaving Steffy by setting Rick's house ablaze and blowing up Rick's car. Thomas underwent counseling with James and eventually made peace with Rick, who had broken things off with Steffy. Thomas and Steffy later faked text messages between Ridge and Brooke to make sure Ridge's remarriage to Taylor took place, though Brooke exposed the siblings at the ceremony.
Publishing magnate Bill Spencer, Jr. gained control of Forrester Creations, so Thomas suggested that Steffy seduce Bill to get the company back, later blasting Steffy for doing exactly that when Steffy also tried to blackmail Brooke. Thomas stuck up for Brooke in a meeting and included her in an idea to revive her men's line. To call attention to the collection, which Thomas renamed Taboo, Thomas kissed his sometime stepmother on the runway when PR whiz Whip Jones suggested Thomas pull a publicity stunt, which enraged Taylor. Thomas became fascinated with Brooke and kissed her as she slept, even though he was dating Dayzee Leigh.
En route from a Taboo promo tour, Thomas and Brooke nearly died in a plane crash and were stranded on a deserted island. Forced to eat hallucinogenic berries to survive, Thomas wasn't sure if he'd actually slept with Brooke or just imagined it. Once home safe, Thomas accepted a bribe from his grandmother, Stephanie Forrester: if Thomas would help keep Ridge and Brooke apart by lying that Brooke had sex with Thomas on the island, Thomas would earn Stephanie's 25% share in Forrester. Thomas nearly went through with the plan but came clean after Dayzee begged him to; Thomas lost both Dayzee and Taboo and found himself "banished" to the Forrester basement with Thorne, who wondered if Thomas might be gay.
Thomas took an interest in Brooke's daughter, Hope Logan, and whisked Hope off to Cabo San Lucas, where Steffy happened to be vacationing with Hope's ex-fiancé, Liam Cooper. Thomas worked with Steffy to keep Hope away from Liam, but the scheme backfired. Later, Thomas competed with Rick for the attentions of Caroline Spencer, who had two mothers, Karen Spencer and Danielle. Thomas wholeheartedly accepted Karen and Danielle's relationship, and later helped Caroline clear their buddy Marcus Forrester, who thought he had hit Dayzee's friend Anthony with his car while texting. Thomas remained conflicted about Hope and kissed her twice, but ultimately chose to stay with Caroline.
After Thomas became interim CEO of Forrester in Ridge's absence, Thomas butted heads with Rick, who wanted Caroline for himself; Thomas lost Caroline when Rick crashed through a second-story window because of their argument. After Stephanie died of lung cancer, Thomas was ready to use the 25% share Stephanie promised him to implement his new ideas, but Stephanie left behind a DVD that ultimately transferred all CEO power to her widower, Thomas' grandfather Eric Forrester. Thomas had to battle Rick in a fashion showdown for the presidency of Forrester, which Rick won.
Thomas hit the runway with other male Forrester executives for Caroline's cancer foundation fundraiser. Later, Thomas moved into his childhood beach house and roomed with his friend, Oliver Jones. Thomas became a sounding board for Steffy and Taylor, then failed to convince Eric that Thorne would make a better president than Rick. Thomas eventually moved to Paris to work with Thorne at Forrester International and watched as his cousin, Aly Forrester, had an unusually intense negative reaction to Hope's boyfriend, Wyatt Fuller.
Thomas agreed to sign his 5% stake in Forrester over to Ridge, who wanted to combine his stock with Steffy's and Bill's to overthrow tyrannical CEO Rick. After Aly, who had a history of mental illness stemming from the tragic childhood loss of her mother, died in a confrontation with Steffy, Thomas came home for Aly's memorial. Thomas still had feelings for Caroline, who had moved on with Ridge; when Ridge suddenly dumped Caroline because he couldn't give her the family she wanted, Thomas' comforting turned to lovemaking after too much wine. Thomas was taken aback when Caroline didn't remember sleeping with him because she had also taken antianxiety pills; Thomas swore he wouldn't have initiated sex if he'd realized she'd been so incapacitated. Thomas and Caroline agreed to forget the evening ever happened.
Thomas became a womanizer, kissing Forrester intern Nicole Avant and bedding a bevy of other girls; after Ridge blasted Thomas for crossing the line with co-workers, Thomas punched Ridge, which got him shipped back to Forrester International. When Thomas came back, he found out Caroline was pregnant; satisfied to hear the child was Ridge's, Thomas moved in on Wyatt's girlfriend, Ivy Forrester, and bet Steffy he could get Ivy into bed. Thomas and Wyatt blamed each other when Ivy was electrocuted during an argument with Steffy, who had told Wyatt about Thomas and Ivy's kisses.
Thomas experienced an epiphany and gave up playing around when Caroline gave birth to baby Douglas, whom Ridge had named in honor of Stephanie's maiden name; Thomas felt a strong connection to his little brother. But when Ridge announced that Thomas was really Douglas' father, and that Caroline had known all along, Thomas took off with Douglas and summoned Caroline to the Forrester cabin in Big Bear. Thomas agreed to let Ridge raise Douglas to avoid a scandal, but once Bill nearly went public with Douglas' paternity, Thomas changed his mind. After Caroline, who had split from Ridge, declined Thomas' offer to be a family with Douglas, Thomas befriended Nicole's half-sister Sasha Thompson and defended her from her bullying father, Julius Avant. Thomas built on Sasha's thank-you kiss by dating her though he still felt pulled toward Caroline.
When Eric wanted to marry Quinn Fuller, a woman with a criminal past, Thomas stood with his family in boycotting his grandfather's wedding but felt guilty afterwards, especially when an enraged Eric collapsed from a brain hemorrhage. Thomas balked upon learning that Eric had appointed Quinn interim CEO and also put Wyatt in a leadership position. Later, Thomas' conflict over whether to become a family with Douglas and Caroline was resolved when Sasha let Thomas go, not wanting to stand between Thomas and his son. Thomas, Caroline, and Douglas then went on an extended trip to New York, missing Quinn's first fashion show as CEO. When Thomas returned alone, he reported that he and Caroline had tried to make a go of things, but their relationship was up in the air.
While feeling unappreciated at Forrester when he wasn't considered for a promotion that would have given him co-CEO duties with Steffy, Thomas met a feisty girl who turned out to be fledgling designer Sally Spectra, the namesake grand-niece of Spectra Fashions knockoff queen Sally Spectra. Thomas couldn't help but laugh when Sally started a food fight with Steffy; when Sally thought Thomas was insulting her designs, he silenced her with a kiss. At the wedding of his cousin, Zende Forrester Dominguez, Thomas spotted the uninvited Sally dressed as a caterer and gently warned her to leave, but later Thomas was amused to see a video on social media showing Steffy shoving Sally's face into a cake. Thomas comforted Sally when she received an unusually vicious review of Spectra's comeback line.
Despite his disagreements with Steffy at work, Thomas agreed to attend her wedding to Liam in Australia; Thomas told Sally he would have taken her as his date if she were heading Down Under. Thomas was surprised when Sally showed up at his hotel room and more surprised when Steffy zip-lined into her ceremony. After Sally's squabble with Steffy ended with Sally falling into Manly Harbour, Thomas jumped in after her and kissed her. Back home, Thomas told Sally that he hoped Sydney was just the beginning.
Thomas couldn't understand it when Sally dumped him for not telling her he had a son with Caroline, yet proudly attended Spectra's showing until he saw Forrester designs sashaying down their runway. Thomas agreed with Steffy that Sally should be prosecuted, but couldn't dismiss his feelings for Sally, even speaking up for Sally at her preliminary hearing. When Thomas discovered that Bill had engineered Sally's horrible review so he could buy Spectra and replace it with a skyscraper, Thomas invested $100,000 in Spectra, which got him fired by Ridge; Thomas and Sally affirmed their feelings for each other and finally made love. Thomas felt conflicted when Eric and Steffy asked him to return to Forrester, but settled on defecting to Spectra and becoming its lead designer. Thomas assured a dubious Steffy that Sally wasn't simply using him to revitalize Spectra.
Thomas created a new logo for Spectra and got a taste of Sally's struggles when he had trouble creating buzz around Spectra's classier image. Thomas learned Forrester was mounting a fashion show focusing on swimwear in Monte Carlo and arranged for Spectra to get in on it, turning the event into a fashion duel. Thomas whipped up a swimsuit line with Sally and had to reassure her when Caroline returned to town with Douglas. Thomas railed against Bill's demand that Thomas take Caroline back, but reeled after he learned from Bill that Caroline was dying. Thomas flew to Monte Carlo with Sally yet told Caroline he wanted to spend her last days with her and their son. After several weeks in New York City, Thomas returned to L.A. the moment he heard that Spectra had burned to the ground and Sally had suffered minor smoke inhalation; Thomas expressed his love for Sally but said he still needed to be with Caroline and Douglas.
Months later, off-screen, Thomas learned that Caroline wasn't dying after all, and never had been; it had all been a scheme of Bill's. Thomas returned to L.A furious with Bill and was briefly suspected of shooting Bill in the back. Thomas apologetically explained everything to Sally and offered to take her and her Spectra crew to New York with him to reboot Spectra Fashions in the Big Apple; Thomas was last seen being warned by the police not to leave town until the identity of Bill's shooter had been discovered. A few months later, off-screen, it was said that Thomas took Sally back to New York, only to dump her for Caroline.
In 2019, Thomas came home with Douglas and the sad news that Caroline, with whom he'd been living as co-parents after their romantic relationship fell apart, had died of a sudden blood clot. Seeing that his child was without a mother and Hope, who had recently lost Liam's baby, was without a child, Thomas set about trying to break up Hope's marriage to Liam so he could have Hope for himself. Thomas noted Hope and Douglas' newfound closeness and forged a drawing from his son for her, then showed Hope videos of Kelly, Liam's infant daughter with Steffy, out of context and got Hope to send Liam away to visit Steffy and Kelly in Paris. With Liam out of town, Thomas kissed Hope and proposed to her, but he faced Hope's refusal and Liam's wrath upon learning of Thomas' plans.
Thomas became increasingly unstable in his pursuit of Hope as he forged a letter from Caroline to convince Hope she should be a mother to Douglas and stopped Forrester intern Xander Avant from interrupting Hope while she signed annulment papers with Liam. After Xander slipped that his news had something to do with Hope's newfound cousin, Florence Fulton, Thomas confronted Flo and learned that Hope's baby wasn't dead: OB/GYN Reese Buckingham, whose daughter, Zoe Buckingham, was dating Xander, had put a dead infant in Hope's arms and gave Hope's child to Steffy to adopt, which gave Reese the money he needed to pay off mobsters. Thomas rushed to tell Steffy she was raising Hope's baby, but when he saw Steffy and Liam functioning as a family, he decided to keep quiet and menaced Xander, Zoe, and Flo into doing the same.
Thomas received a frantic call from Zoe when Xander's ex-girlfriend, Emma Barber, also found out about Hope's baby; not having been able to shut the determined Emma up, Thomas drove down a dark road after Emma and watched as Emma's car crashed through a guardrail and rolled down an embankment. Thomas feigned shock when Hope reported that Emma had died; when Hope and Brooke challenged Thomas about not having mentioned seeing Emma before she died, Thomas lied that dancer Emma had been upset about Thomas' refusal to incorporate dance into Forrester's next showing. Thomas scoffed at Xander and Flo's notion that he had killed Emma, yet seemed rattled during Emma's memorial, recalling he'd only been trying to get Emma to pull over when the accident happened.
Thomas continually tried to persuade Hope that Liam had moved on with Steffy, and punctuated his point by drugging Liam's drink at a party, which led to Liam making love to Steffy. Thomas capitalized on the rift by coaching Douglas to propose to Hope on his behalf while pretending it was all Douglas' idea. When Hope wanted to wait on having sex, Thomas projected a ghost image on the wall to frighten Douglas, knowing it would prompt Hope to move up the wedding. After his wedding night left Hope wanting to sleep on the couch, Thomas arranged a romantic "staycation"¯ at a hotel so he could finally make love to his bride.
Thomas kept terrorizing Flo into keeping her mouth shut about Steffy's baby, Phoebe, really being Hope's baby, Beth -- a truth he scrambled to cover when young Douglas overheard. Thomas threatened to abandon Douglas if he squealed, but during Thomas' "staycation"¯, where he made no inroads trying to get Hope into bed, Thomas received a call from a defiant Douglas, who announced he had told Liam that Phoebe was Beth. Thomas took Hope back to Forrester and arranged for a helicopter to pick them up there, only to find Liam had locked Thomas out of an office so he could tell Hope her baby was alive. Thomas got to Hope and dragged her away, igniting a fistfight with Liam that ended in Thomas wordlessly confirming that Phoebe was Beth and Thomas had married Hope knowing about it.
Thomas escaped and hid out at his friend Vinny's apartment, where he raged about Douglas stabbing him in the back and convinced himself he could win Hope back if he could just get her alone to explain things.
