Tommy Lisbon is the younger brother of Teresa Lisbon, Stan Lisbon, and James Lisbon. He is a single parent and has a 14-year-old daughter named Annabeth "Annie" Lisbon.


Tommy and his siblings were raised in Chicago. His mother was a nurse, and his father a firefighter. Tommy's mother was killed by a drunk driver (Red Badge) when he was a child. After his mother's death, his father became an abusing alcoholic who beat his children. His father died years later, leaving Tommy and his brothers to be taken care of by their elder sister, Teresa.

In adulthood, Tommy became an electrician and had a falling out with his brothers (Code Red). At some point, he met an unnamed woman and the two had a daughter, Annie. Annie's mother later left the family, leaving Tommy as Annie's sole guardian.

Tommy eventually became a bounty hunter, taking his daughter with him along his "arrests". Tommy eventually made amends with his family (Where in the World is Carmine O'Brien).


Teresa Lisbon[]

Although Teresa and Tommy do not always get along, Tommy has always looked up to his sister and she has always been proud of him. It is unsure what had happened previously between the two, but Teresa "forgives him for whatever." Probably after the death of their parents, the family had tried to keep close, but had falling outs. Teresa doesn't really approve of her brother's job, but nonetheless tries to support him.
