Go ahead and pull my interest, some stuff has taken over my irl currently and I'm not finding the time or creative juices to actually build more than a rough concept of a character. Sorry for wasting anyone's time.
Guess that's enough people to start helming questions then.
What nation do y'all wanna citizenship in?
Now I'm nervous. I hope you like what I wrote for him. I tried to make him the more mature, level-headed member of the racing group.

It’s not a common event the birth of a star but that’s what the 17th of February 1989 marked. Thomas Lomax was the dream; quarterback of his high school football team, state champions all four years, a two time All-American, homecoming king--- he had it all. And life stayed that way for Thomas as he started university at Ohio State on an athletic scholarship. Tommy spent his first year at OSU mainly riding the bench, learning from the coaches and other players, his second year though saw him take the field as the first string quarterback where he proceeded to lead OSU to a conference championship. By this time the name Thomas Lomax was already making ripples in the professional community so it was to no real surprise that after Tommy followed the conference championship up with a national title that he was offered a spot in the NFL. In the 2011 NFL draft Thomas Lomax ended up a first round draft pick for the Sol City Icarus Angels. Dropping out of school Tommy relocated from the midwest to Sol City and began his training with the Angels. Tommy’s rookie year was a record breaking one in which he lead the Angels to the NFC championship, where they unfortunately lost. Going into his second year it was a similar story except in which the way it ended. The dawn of the 20th of January 2013 saw The Icarus Angels once again finding themselves competing in the NFC championship, once more playing for a spot at the Super Bowl. The game came down to the wire, it was a game that was decided by a matter seconds not a matter of points. However for Thomas Lomax it was a game with a life defining second. In the fourth quarter during the Angels’ last drive downfield Lomax took a nasty hit that shut down the dreams of the Sol City Icarus Angels and shattered the knee of their star quarterback. And so it was that the 20th of January 2013 marked the falling of a star.
With a shattered knee Thomas found himself back in small town Ohio, staying with his parents while waiting for the knee to heal. The small town was suffocating after the last two years in Sol City and it was only made worse by the constant pity he felt from those around him. Once he was back on his feet, more literally than figuratively, Tommy made the decision to permanently make the move back to Sol City. Thanks to the size of the city Tommy could almost start over. People recognized him from time to time, and some of them still pitied him but it wasn’t the constant it had been in Ohio. Despite the tragically short career Tommy had had with the Icarus Angels he had still made a small fortune, roughly eight million between his signing bonus and the payout for his two years. In all reality it meant that Thomas was set for life and could feasibly enjoy a very young retirement. And this is what Tommy spent the next year doing. However, as is oft the case, retirement didn’t suite Tommy well. A sedentary life was just not one that clicked with the former All-American.
Trying to find something to occupy his days as a retiree Tommy didn’t take long to settle on the idea of a sports bar. It made some level of sense, it was something to do that required near daily oversight and wasn’t liable to become too boring too quickly--- plus it also capitalized on his local fame. And so Footsteps Sports Bar was born. Since opening the bar in 2014 it has become somewhat of a go to spot for sports fans in the area.
Other than the running of a sports bar, which does take up quite a bit of time. Tommy supplements his semi-retired life style with as much exercise as he can manage however due to his knee injury this isn’t always possible, in fact sometimes, on bad days, Tommy has to use a cane to get around.
