Prince Thomas is based on the Prince from the fairytale, "Cinderella".
At a royal ball held at his father's castle, Prince Thomas' interest is piqued by a girl dressed in a blue gown and wearing glass slippers. He and the girl dance, in which she declines to give her name, so he dubs her the "girl with the glass slippers". After the dance ends, Thomas leaves to take care of something, but not before telling her not to go anywhere. He goes to meet with Clorinda, and passes her a rose that his footman Jacob, whom she is in love with, wanted her to have. Ella sees the exchange and begins to have doubts about Thomas' affections, especially when her stepmother Lady Tremaine suggests that the prince was just toying with her. An upset Ella departs from the ball, and as she flees, one of her glass slippers is left behind. Thomas, enraptured by the mystery girl, decides to look for her. With the help of Princess Snow's tracking skills, he ends up at the girl's home, but no one answers the door. Ella, unknown to him, is stuck in another room after being locked in by Tremaine. Just when Thomas is ready to leave and search elsewhere for her, Gus leads him and Snow to her. Ella apologizes for deceiving him and believes he won't want her now, but Thomas proves his feelings for her are genuine and proposes to her. She accepts, but then excuses herself to stop Tremaine from hurting Clorinda and Jacob. ("The Other Shoe")
On Thomas' wedding day to Cinderella, the couple host the celebration with many honored guests, such as Snow White and Prince Charming. Several months later, Thomas returns home one day from a canceled hunting trip to find Cinderella packing up her things. He fears his wife is unhappy, but rejoices at the news she is pregnant. However, Cinderella is miserable and finally comes clean about deal she previously made with a powerful magic user, Rumplestiltskin, to allow her to attend the ball and win Thomas' heart. As a price, she has to give up her first-born child to Rumplestiltskin, however, Thomas vows to find some way to fix the situation. With Prince Charming's help, the seven dwarves fashion an inescapable prison for Rumplestiltskin in the mines. The Blue Fairy offers up a magical red quill dipped in squid ink, and all Cinderella must do is get Rumplestiltskin to sign a fake contract with it to paralyze him. Thomas encourages Cinderella to go through with the plan. When she succeeds, Rumplestiltskin is locked up in preparation for the journey to the prison. At the sidelines, Thomas comforts his wife while suggesting they name their child Alexandra. Suddenly, Cinderella feels a contraction; prompting Thomas to sprint to the well to get some water for her. Once there, Thomas mysteriously disappears into thin air as a result of Cinderella's unfulfilled original deal with Rumplestiltskin. ("The Price of Gold")
