Biography[edit | edit source]

When TC was a kid, his mom abandoned her Family. So his dad stepped up and gave TC a decent upbringing. He had two jobs to support his family. For TC his dad is a hero. That’s why he loves being a surrogate dad for at-risk kids.

But one day his dad was arrested. He was a suspect in a bank robbery. TC told his friends that the charges were dropped, but that was a lie. His dad was involved in the robbery and went to prison for it. TC lived with his grandparents for six years until his dad got early parole. He did not just lie to Magnum and Rick, but also to himself.

TC, call sign “Little Bird”, is a former Marine Corps chopper pilot. TC is now the owner/operator, of Island Hoppers, the smallest but best helicopter tour business in Hawaii. He lives in a mobile home.

TC is one of Magnum’s group of loyal friends who bonded when they were all POWs in Afghanistan.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • has never been to Detroit
  • He mentions in S3E5 that he is from North Carolina when a hurricane is approaching the island.
