Thomas Roxborough is one of the major shareholders of both Aztechnology and Universal Omnitech. He was a corporate raider living off of inherited money and engaging in hostile takeovers of companies, selling their assets for profit. In 2049, he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that gave him less than a year to live. Universal Omnitech (which he owns about 5 percent) offered him the only treatment that could possibly save his life, an experimental germline genetic therapy. He is still alive to this day, but not in the form he once was, as the therapy caused his tissues to redifferentiate. His body turned into a pile of unconnected flesh, leaving only his brain intact. Living in a vat of nutrient materials, his only contact with the outside world is through the Matrix. What remains of his body is said to be in a secret UniOmni clinic in Central America.
It is rumored that he is obsessed with obtaining a new body for his consciousness and is willing to try anything from Cybermancy to Nanotechnology to achieve this goal. He disappeared for a time during 2057, but returned after a long hiatus. Because he spends his entire life on the Matrix, he is rumored to be an incredible decker.
