The Maze Runner Thomas "He Began his new life standing up, surrounded by the cold darkness, and stale, dusty air"(Dashner 1).
So... How was your day?
Why do I want to be a runner so badly?
Thomas's physical description is that he is a mess after being in the box banging on the wall. He was screaming while he was trying to figure out where he was. "Looks like a klunk in a T-Shirt!"Dashner 3). Thomas was sweaty from being nervous and hitting the walls. He was only able to remember his name which made it harder to stay calm. The two hour journey to get to the surface tired Thomas out as he unsuccessfully tried to find a way out. He could not figure out why he could not remember simple memories such as who his parents were . He had rugged brown hair, and was over 6 feet tall.
Thomas's strongest personality trait was that he was that when he was talking, something stubborn always came out of his mouth. Thomas never liked being told to be quite, or when he was corrected. "It's kinda stupid to sent me some place where nothing makes sense and not answer my questions"(Dashner 37). Thomas did not think it was fair to have information kept from him, and when he was told to be quite, it only made him start to talk more and louder.
I don't know
At the beginning of the story, Thomas's character trait was determined. Thomas wanted to be a runner even after he saw what lived in the maze, and how many died because of the Grievers. "He was suppose to be a runner... why did he feel those feelings so strongly?... after seeing what lived in the maze"(Dashner 40). Thomas was not going to give up on his goal of being a runner from just some people telling him he could not do it before seeing how god of a runner he was. He was not going to let those words of others take him down, but he would use his own words to lift others up that they can do anything if they put time and effort into it.
In the middle of the story, Thomas's character trait was collected and calm. All of the Glader's around him were freaking out at the grey sky, but Thomas acted mature, and got to work in the maze. "...he didn't feel nearly as panicked or frightened as his instincts told him he ought to be"(Dashner 219). He was not scarred that there were no new supplies that came in that morning, or that the sky was grey, but saw it as it being time for the Glader's to escape, and get out of the Glade. Thomas decided it was best to go to work, and keep on acting like it was a normal day, but was planning further for their escape.
At the end of the story, Thomas is discouraged. Chuck's death destroyed his hope of escaping. "Thomas cried, and wept like he'd never wept before"(Dashner 358). Chuck was was the light in Thomas's life that told him that the world could be a good again. Once Chuck died, that light died with him. Thomas cold not function properly, from the death of Chuck. Chuck had sacrificed his life for Thomas, and Thomas felt that the death of Chuck was his falt. Chuck was like the little brother Thomas is not sure he ever had. The death of Chuck made Thomas want to curl up in a ball and cry until there were no tears left. It broke Thomas.
