Thomas, a 15 year old boy who has no memory of his past life, is coming into a new environment. This Box is bringing him to a Maze, and the only way to solve it is to persevere, and never give up. He soon figures out that he is not any normal Glader, many people recall seeing him before in past. This causes many cases of adversity the in Glade. Thomas was struggling to show everyone that he wasn't just a"greenie"he was made to be a runner, when Alby and Minho went into the maze and was not going to make it back, Thomas stepped into the to help his fellow Gladers, not only did he risk his life for his friends he fought off a Griver and saved Alby's life all by himself. Thomas was a huge team player while in the maze and even though he was called weak and a newbie he showed all of the Gladers what he could do.
