Was born in a densely populated city on an insignificant planet. Mother disappeared when too young to remember her. Father was depressed and did not step up to challenge of providing for family. When old enough to walk, Tomi was old enough to survive on the streets – begging, thieving, navigating group politics. She kept her father and herself clothed, sheltered, fed, and out of violence through her own cunning. She also managed a decent education (though largely self-taught).
At the age of 22, she was working as a contracted messenger. Her discretion and street smarts impressed a business man who had hired her for a personal job. He brought her into his big corporation, despite her lack of formal education and references. She was employed as an intelligence agent early on. Though stealthy, her double agency was uncovered, and she went into hiding. That same businessman tried to lure her out by kidnapping and torturing her father. She was able to free him without capture, but his medical bills have put her far into debt, and she has self-exiled herself to avoid further tragedy for the both of them.
To distance herself spatially form her father, and to pay off her debt, Tomi became a rogue pirate. She used her skills in piloting, deception, and survival to be fairly successful, though she was treated as scum in every space sport.
A Civil Administrator named Frankie was one of the few folks to have a decent conversation with her. Tomi had been thinking about abandoning pirating and becoming a Traveler. When Frankie said she needed to flee the Barnett system for some reason, Tomi accepted 2 shares in a ship called The Heinlein in exchange for arranging Frankie’s transport Rimward as a Steward on a security transport for a wealthy client.
