Tommy Jones, also known as Tom Jones, was one of Darren Shan's best friends whilst Darren was still at school. Along with Alan Morris, Steve Leonard and Darren, Tommy wanted to go and watch the Cirque du Freak in their hometown. Tommy finally watched the Cirque the night before the football match, where he was killed. He used to play as a goalkeeper when playing football at school. After Darren's 'death', he grew up to become a famous footballer, playing as a goalkeeper professionally. He also shortened his name to just Tom.

At the end of a cup semi-final, held in Darren and Tommy's home town, R.V. and Morgan James, enterting from the stadiums tunnel, killed him, probably because of his affiliation with Darren. He bled to death as Darren chased his murderers.


Due to his fame, Tommy had many sporting memorabilia made for him. These included CDs of Tom Jones with pictures of Tommy stuck on the front, due to their similar names.
