Tommy Le Homme is a character in Disco Elysium.
A young family man pacing anxiously near his lorry, stuck in the traffic jam for several days with the others. He is a bit more talented than one might assume, doing a tedious, dead-end job just to keep the family afloat. Tends to wax poetic when gets emotional (stressed, irritated, anxious), especially when discussing his family or FALN, where they live. His family is in Deora-of-the-Seven-Seas, on the other end of the continent, on a small island off the coast of Le Caillou, Laurentide. He misses his children and his wife greatly and being stuck in a traffic jam has done little to lift his spirits. His real name is Jerry Lefitte, he uses Le Homme as a stage name for his dream of being a musician.
- Standing just outside Whirling-in-Rags, Tommy is an opportunity to jaw a little about reality and the feeling of being stranded in a week-old traffic jam caused by the Union strike. You can get quite a lot out of him with Conceptualization passive checks.
- You can use Empathy (Formidable 13) to peer into his eyes and realize the depths of his longing, being separated from his family for so long. Doing so is worth 5 XP.
The lines he mutters to himself when spoken to for the first time - "I am a gander and a hunter and a gatherer, feel like a traveller... from another planet" - are from "Want To Be Free" by the British Sea Power.
