Tom, who was once known as "Mr. Friendly", was one of the Others who seemed to be loyal to Ben. Throughout seasons one and two he acted as an unofficial spokesperson for the Others and it is believed that he was not a high ranking member; however, he was of some importance. He was wearing a fake beard during his early encounters with the survivors for an unknown reason. According to Ben, Tom is "no one" compared to the real leader ("Dave"). While not technically in charge of the Others, Tom did have some authority as shown in his conversation with Ethan ("Maternity Leave"), in his dealings with Alex and Pickett ("The Hunting Party"), ("Three Minutes"), and with the party that captured Hurley, Jack, Kate and Sawyer ("Live Together, Die Alone"). He was killed by Sawyer, in revenge for kidnapping Walt.
