Thomas Richards is a character from The Walking Dead comic books series. He is one of the four criminals who were in the prison Rick Grimes and his group arrived in. During the time that the group spent in the prison, Thomas murdered Susie and Rachel Greene by decapitating them. When he was discovered to be the killer, he was locked up in a cell, but was released by Patricia - as she was against the group's idea of executing him even though she was aware of his evil nature. He then attacked and attempted to kill Patricia, but was shot and mortally wounded by Maggie Greene. His body was then thrown into hoards of zombies, who tear the body apart. Thomas served as the main antagonist of Volume 3: Safety Behind Bars.
- Robert Kirkman revealed Thomas was originally planned to stab the pregnant Lori Grimes right in the stomach, killing the baby, but was scrapped, probably because it was too horrid for the series' already gritty themes.
- Thomas is referenced in the The Walking Dead Video Game by the unnamed Police Officer.
- Thomas is the only known survivor to be directly killed by Maggie Greene.
- The character is less evil in the TV series despite his vicious nature, whereas his comic counterpart is an outright monster who develops a much more ruthless and sadistic personality than the former.
