Thomas Giovanni Sollozzo II was born in Chicago, Illinois to an upper-class wizarding family. His father, Thomas Giovanni Sollozzo I was a prominent figure in the Wizarding Community and Ministry of Magic. While many of his dealings were illegal, he often made that to be kept low-profile due to his many donations to several wizarding hospitals and schools around North America. His mother, Elizabeth Renee Nelson-Sollozzo was President of the Department for International Affairs in the American Ministry.
Thomas grew up with the thoughts of 'Pride, Power, Purpose.' He went to school in a small wizarding school in the Chicago Underground, and graduated with high honors. He didn't go on to University, while many of his professors urged him to. However, he helped out with his father's business and eventually killed his mother and father to gain their fortunes and his father's business.
Throughout the years, he has made dealings with some of the darkest people in the wizarding community, while keeping a good profile by doing just as his father did. He remained a philanthropist up until a year before he made the final decision to move his business.
He saved up quite a bit of money, and took a plane to Australia in 2007, and set up shop in a small town of Narragyambie as the owner of a Gentleman's Club. He brought controversy to the small Australian town, trying to set up a protection racket that failed miserably. He also met Adele here, and was quick to swoop her up. She was exactly his type of woman.
When things began going for the worse though, and he found out her involvement with other men, he began torturing not only Adele, but her daughter as well. As people eventually stood up to Thomas, and he had kidnapped the daughters of Ivan Valentin, did his reign of terror end with the slice of a knife across his throat. Little did Ivan know that Thomas was still alive as he disapparated with his daughters. Once gone, Thomas disapparated himself, and reappeared at the home of his private healer.
Thomas laid low for years, gaining power again, keeping his wealth, and most importantly, plotting the demise of all who stood against him, and to reclaim what is rightfully his...Adele. However, his letters to Adele stopped whenever Zane, his nephew, told them that they must. There were more important things at play now. When Améa stood up to Zane, however, a letter was sent to Thomas. Now, Thomas has returned to Narragyambie, using polyjuice potion and concealment charms to change his appearance around on a day to day basis to stay hidden, to keep a closer eye on the situation.
