The Promised Neverland Wiki

This article is about the Manga version of Thoma. For alternate pages referred to by this name, please click any of the icons above.

Thoma (トーマ, Tōma?) is a 7-year-old orphan who formerly resided at Grace Field House Plant 3 as one of the many foster children of Isabella. He is an energetic boy who is often seen around his best friend, Lannion. He is later brought into the escape plan alongside Lannion, Nat, and Anna after the truth of the orphanage is revealed.

After his success of escaping Grace Field alongside 14 other orphans, Thoma now seeks to find William Minerva, whom he and his team believe can grant them the liberty to live a safe and peaceful life away from the demons.


Thoma is a young boy with black monolid eyes, a wide smile and one missing tooth. He has short black which sticks up in three oval sections at the top of the right side of his head, and the bottom of his left side. On the left side of his neck, he has the identifying number "55924" from his time at Grace Field House.


Thoma appears to be a mischievous boy and enjoys pulling pranks along with Lani. He is also resourceful as he invented a water-bottle rope device which played a big part in the escape, enabling the orphans to escape from Grace Field House. Although he is a bit cowardly and blunt, he has a strong will and cares deeply for his family.


Introduction Arc

Taking daily tests, playing a game of tag, eating scrumptious homemade food and having a good time – Thoma went through the same routine every day in Grace Field House.

Thoma was first seen playing tag with his siblings of the Grace Field House, where he was almost immediately caught by Norman. A few days later, during a game of tag, he was caught by Krone along with Nat, Lannion, and Anna.

Jailbreak Arc

It is revealed that he, along with Nat, Anna, and Lannion was brought into the escape plan after Don and Gilda. Thoma was seen being horrified when Isabella carried Emma with a broken leg, to which he understood that it was Isabella's doing. During the two months after Norman's shipment, Thoma and his siblings got instructions from Emma on how to train the orphans for the upcoming escape. Thoma also assisted in the escape, making a decoy for Ray and fastening the zip lines in order to cross the cliff. On January 15, 2046, Thoma and his siblings escape from Grace Field House Plant 3.

Promised Forest Arc

After escaping Grace Field with his siblings, Thoma and the others started looking for location B06-32 with some help from Mujika and Sonju; in which later they found out it is a hidden shelter in the wasteland. Upon reaching Shelter B06-32 like the rest of the children, he took refuge in it for more than a year.[5]

Search For Minerva Arc

Thoma, along with Lannion, was seen being overjoyed after Emma woke up from her coma following her battle with Leuvis.[6]

Cuvitidala Arc

Like the rest of his siblings, Thoma escaped from the shelter after it was raided by Andrew and his team. He later mourned Mister, Lucas and the others that were killed during the attack.

Upon arriving at the Paradise Hideout, Thoma was shocked and happy to see Norman again, leaping into his arms and expressing admiration of his new position. Thoma was later seen with the rest of the children listening to Emma's and Ray's speech about leaving The Paradise Hideout to go to the seven walls to try to make a better promise. Thoma and Lani were reluctant but later received some comforting words from Ray. He then waved Emma goodbye like the rest of the children.[7]



Lannion is Thoma's best friend ever since they met at Grace Field House. They are always seen together, and whatever they do; playing, pulling pranks, inventing things, or running away from demons, they do together.


Thoma is close to Emma and views her as an older sister. Although he looks up to her as their leader, he also likes to mess with her and pull pranks on her.


Thoma cares for Ray and admires him as an older brother. He was against Ray's plan to die and therefore worked hard to prevent it. Thoma also appreciates Ray's hard work and his wise words which he sometimes shares with him and Lannion. However, he also likes to tease him and sometimes throws out sarcastic comments about his self-sacrificing personality.
