About Him

Grew Up… as a warrior. President Whitmore was a military man before he entered politics. Don’t let his civilized manner fool you: Whitmore is a trained fighter pilot.

Living… on the run. After alien invaders destroyed the White House, President Whitmore, his family, and his staff have been forced to relocate to a secret location.

Profession… leader of the free world. President Thomas J. Whitmore is shouldering the world’s burden – it’s not only the President’s job to save mankind from extinction, he also has to boost morale. His impassioned speeches give hope to humanity: “We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”

Interests… flying planes. President Whitmore misses his days as a fighter pilot. After most of the U.S. military has been decimated, Whitmore takes it upon himself to get in a plane and fight alongside the other volunteers. As he says, “I’m a combat pilot. I belong in the air.”

Relationship Status… married with one daughter. Aside from saving all the civilians of America from the extraterrestrial terrorists, Whitmore wants to make sure there’s a world left for his daughter to grow up in.

Challenge… leading humanity to victory. President Whitmore, after learning of the aliens’ plan to destroy Earth, is willing to pay any price to ensure mankind’s victory. He declares, “We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: ‘We will not go quietly into the night!’”

Personality… levelheaded and strong. Thomas Whitmore was a born leader. Now that he’s facing the largest crisis that the world has ever seen, he has to harness his leadership abilities and save our planet.
