Thomas Gower was an orphan in Whitechapel that joined a child gang. He was accused of murder but is set free by Edmund Reid and Bennet Drake. Drake commissions him as a private in the British army where he is not seen again until season four of the show. In season four Drake and Reid find him at the iron works and is yet again a suspect in a murder. He received a dishonorable discharge from the military and becomes a drunk to forget all that he has seen. Gower is last seen stumbling around the streets when the Whitechapel Golem stabs him and he crawls away with his dying strength. His last words are "Miss Deborah".
