Thomas "Tom" Rivas is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Background

Thomas Rivas was born in Puerto Rico in 1981. He has two cousins, Lyle and Victor. At an unknown point in time, Rivas moved to Liberty City, and also came out as gay. His nickname is "French Tom", also, he uses French Tom as his username for his account on www.Love-Meet.net.

Events of GTA IV

By 2008, Rivas was in debt to Brucie Kibbutz. When Kibbutz tried to retrieve his money, Rivas went into hiding. In order to lure him out, Brucie and Roman Bellic set up a fictionalised Love-Meet Account for Niko Bellic which depicted him as a rich gay man who enjoys spending his wealth on his boyfriends. Tom agreed to meet Niko at The 69th Street Diner, where, after some awkward conversation, Niko killed him.

During the conversation between Niko and Tom, Tom mentions that the Maisonette 9 and Hercules nightclub owner Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince is actually completely broke, which plays a large part in the story of The Ballad of Gay Tony.
