Detective Tommy McConnell is an officer in the Northern Ireland Police Service. He is currently a weapons specialist and technician at the ICC.


Before the ICCEdit

Tommy was an Irish Traveler and member of a large family. When he joined the police, his father put a hit out on him. In Desperation & Desperados, Tommy's younger brother Colin accused him of betraying their family and threatened to kill him.

Ironically, it was because of his family that Tommy joined the police. His other brother Sean was killed after robbing a cop's house. Tommy went to take revenge on the cop, but he and his family lived in similar conditions and Tommy refused to kill him in front of his children. Two months later, the cop committed suicide after Tommy humiliated him. Tommy decided no one won, that there had to be a different way to live, and hoped by joining the police he might make a difference for everyone.
