Hold on, it looks like Millium wants to tell you something.
Hey-hey! White Rabbit here! Lammy scanned this article and said it contains unmarked spoilers for all Trails games. Turn back now if you don't want to get lasered! Okay, byee!

Thomas Lysander (トマス・ライサンダー), also known as the Partitioner (匣使い), is a knight of the Gralsritter where he occupies the seat of Second Dominion as the right hand of Ein Selnate and a teacher of history and literature at Thors Military Academy.

Background

Trails of Cold Steel I and II

Thomas Lysander is introduced as a jolly teacher, passionate about literature and history.

During a NG+ exclusive quest in Trails of Cold Steel II, he asks Rean Schwarzer to find the Black Records. Upon having Thomas decipher these, they discover the records contain the unabridged version of the War of the Lions.

Completing this quest unlocks a special scene on the rooftop of Thors Military Academy, where Thomas creates a so-called "partition", which creates a room separated of the actual time-space continuum, to have a talk with Rean and Rosine. There he reveals his identity as the Second Dominion of the Gralsritter and re-introduces Rosine as his squire. Because Rean is the Awakener of Valimar, a fragment of the Great Power, Thomas asks Rean for his cooperation.

After the partition resolves and Rean leaves the rooftop with Class VII, Thomas comments to Rosine that Rean's assistance is needed in uncovering Erebonia's two Sept-Terrion and the secrets of the Divine Knights system fashioned by the Hexen Clan and gnomes. He also reveals that he and Rosine are in charge of eastern Erebonia while Barkhorn takes care of western Erebonia.

Trails of Cold Steel III and IV

Following Barkhorn's death, Thomas took his pupil, Gaius Worzel, to Arteria so he could begin his training as the Eighth Dominion. As Gaius lacked a crew to pilot his inherited Merkabah, Thomas loaned his squires for the time being.

When the Great Twilight began, Thomas requested for assistance to deal with the deteriorating situation in Erebonia. He had intended to bring Kevin Graham and Wazy Hemisphere, the Fifth and Ninth Dominions respectively, but neither of them were able to help as they were dealing with other situations.
