Don't stop, Rebecca. Keep moving. Get to the escape pods on the command deck. We'll take off, set the toaster to wake us up in 30 years and we'll be back on Earth before you know it. A toaster built for two, baby, that's our next stop. Sound good? So let's do it. I won't take any excuses...

Thomas Suarez is a character in System Shock 2. Suarez was a crewman on the UNN Rickenbacker, later transferred to the Von Braun. He and his fiancee, Rebecca Siddons, survived and escaped the Von Braun. He is set to return in the upcoming System Shock 3.

Background

Before the takeover of the Von Braun, Suarez attempted to persuade Captain Diego to transfer him to the Von Braun to be with his fiancee, Rebecca Siddons.

Siddons suspected things were awry when the Von Braun's Hydroponics Deck was cleared, so she and Suarez met on the Von Braun to make an escape plan.

During The Many's takeover of the Von Braun, Suarez and Siddons worked together to escape the ship as the situation deteriorated, evading Sgt. Bronson's security squad, XERXES, The Many, and others as they made their way towards the escape pods on the Command Deck.

Suarez and Siddons were briefly separated. Suarez helped the Resistance set up their transmitter on the Recreation Deck in exchange for information on Siddons' whereabouts.

Suarez and Siddons reunite and manage to escape the Von Braun aboard the last escape pod. However, as Suarez received the Soldier's all-clear transmission, Suarez discovered that Siddons had apparently been possessed by SHODAN.

In-Game

Suarez and Siddons are always at least one step ahead of the Soldier for much of the game. The Soldier never meets them directly, but he glimpses them once on the Command Deck, where the Soldier watches them through a red glass barrier as they are chased towards the escape pods by a Rumbler. The soldier also gets to see their pod take off from the Von Braun a short time later. Suarez drops the bridge key-card on the ground before he leaves, allowing the Soldier to access the bridge.
