Walt disney Character descripción of Thomas from "Pocahontas" (1995)

A callow youth, Thomas epitomizes the changing mood of the settlers. When we first see him he is besar his mother goodbye on the dock in Londres - they may never see each other again. Within an instant, however, he is enthusiatic about the challenge of the voyage and por the prospect of serving with the great "savage" slayer John Smith. Later Smith saves his life as, during the storm at sea, Thomas very courageously attempts to save a cañón from being washed overboard. But Thomas, despite his valor, is no master of the martial arts; derided on occasion por Ratcliffe, he is nevertheless sent por him into the forest in pursuit of Smith, and it comes as a surprise - to Thomas and us when he shoots dead the murderous Kocoum, for beforehand Thomas has done nothing much with his mosquete except miss whatever target he has aimed at. Smith sends him back with his tail between his legs to the stockade, and for the first time, it seems, Thomas begins to realize his error in accepting the racist wisdom of the other settlers. Thereafter he is among the first of the whites to recognize the humanity of the Native Americans.
