Civilian Record

Civilian History Tomás Garcia Cardoso was born to Juana Rossi Garcia and Hugo Lima Cordoso. Though his father is distantly related to former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso, their life was completely unrecognizable compared to that branch of the family. Tomás grew up in a favela on the south end of Rio de Janeiro called Vidigal and was surrounded by crime, violence, and poverty everywhere he turned. Though his small family was poor, his parents did much to protect him from the corruption in their community and to insulate him from gang violence and the temptations that the streets could introduce to a young man. They were devoutly religious Baptists and attended their local church several times a week. Tomás quickly picked up on these beliefs and was not ashamed to voice his ascent to everything they believed.

Tomás entered the Naval School in 1994 and pursued intellectual studies with intense energy. Though he found the physical rigors to be very stressful, he pushed himself and shaped his body into one of a proper military man, leaving his chubby youth behind. He graduated in 1998 and was assigned as a Midshipman aboard a frigate. While there, he started a romance with a female soldier named Camilla Souza and they soon fell madly in love. The two of them planned to leave the military together and to start a family but, in 1999 they found out they were accidentally pregnant. Camilla was discharged from the military and moved back to her hometown for the duration of her pregnancy and Tomás was forced to remain aboard ship. In 2000, Camilla gave birth to a girl and named her Renata. Unfortunately, serious complications during the labor took Camila’s life. Heartbroken beyond belief, Tomás took some leave to care for his infant daughter and to grieve the loss of the love of his life. After several months, he made arrangements for Renata to live with his parents and returned to active duty once again.

The death of Camila had changed the typically upbeat and humorous Tomás into a much more sober and serious man. He had loved her so deeply that he seriously contemplated ending his own life. He refrained because of the dregs of faith still left in him from his religious upbringing. Though he felt he would never look at another woman the same way again, he was proven wrong soon enough. His commanding officer aboard Brazil’s only carrier welcomed his daughter, Mariana Vaz, aboard for a visit. At first Tomás regarded her as a pretty girl and nothing more, considering she was only 17 and he was 28. After several conversations with her, he realized he found her intelligent, and smart, and a great deal more appealing than he had originally thought. Despite the age difference, they began an unofficial chaste romance of sorts where they would call each other at increasingly frequent rates until they were talking daily on the phone. By the time she had reached adulthood, they had already decided that marriage was a must for them, and soon.

Despite his commanding officer’s infuriation, he informed the man of his desire to marry his daughter and, having begrudgingly received the blessing, he left the Navy and they were married in 2005. He got a job at a construction company in Rio de Janeiro and they bought a decent apartment in a safe part of town. Within months of their marriage, Mariana was pregnant. During their pregnancy, this couple made up of lapsed Christians were approached by one of Tomás’ friends, a man named Leonel Vargas, about his own conversion back to the Catholic faith. Since he respected his friend’s keen mind, he didn’t hesitate to give it a try himself. Within weeks, Tomás and Mariana were praying the rosary daily and attending a latin mass parish in Rio. While there, he immediately made connections with the men who attended there and joined a group that met weekly over cigars and drinks to discuss the truths of the faith. He was sold.

In 2007, a few months after the birth of Maria, Tomás decided to take Renata, now 7 years old, into his home. The transition from his parents house to her father’s with a woman she had never known as her mother was very hard for Renata and she acted out very strongly in school. After a year, the couple started to homeschool her in order to avoid some of the peer pressure that seemed to be making her worse.

Several years passed as the family grew closer together. Tomás was making very good money at his job and was able to buy a nice family home outside the city. Renata had adjusted as a full part of the family and had even started to refer to Mariana as her mother. Maria was growing like a weed, and Tomás himself was starting to regain the political itch he’d had a bit growing up. After spending his years since he retired from the Navy paying close attention to Brazilian politics and meeting with like-minded men at church, he decided to become an active participant and, in 2010, he launched his campaign to become a member of the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Chamber, the city council. He ran as a member of the Liberal Party and won easily.

Tomás entered city government with interest and started putting some of his new political philosophies gleaned from the success of Christian history into action the best way he could. Unfortunately for him, his position didn’t lend himself to promoting sweeping reforms to the policies of the city because of entrenched groups. After a few weeks of failure and running into brick walls, he changed tactics and focused on pushing the party line and learning to debate and speak effectively. He proved exceedingly talented in all areas mentioned and soon he was being approached by higher-ups in the Liberal Party to stand for election to the Chamber of Deputies. Though, initially, he refused, eventually he decided there was much good that he could do and threw his hat in the ring. He campaigned actively during the election of 2014 and won his seat comfortably.

Tomás didn’t encounter the same roadblocks he had faced at the city level now that he was working at the national level. He was able, at last, to find like-minded Catholic representatives who were emboldened by his own drive and passion and, slowly but surely, he started to build a block across several parties in the Chamber of Deputies. In 2016, Tomás and 14 other trailblazing deputies founded the Movimento Católico de Solidariedade, otherwise known as the Catholic Solidarity Movement or the CSM on a platform promoting Christian Democracy, Social Conservatism, Distributism, and Christian Populism. Though they were initially regarded as a fringe party by the media and ridiculed by those on the left, they soon began converting members of other parties until their numbers had swelled to 26 members. Though only the 8th largest party in the Chamber of Deputies, they constituted a large portion of the conservative bloc. Shortly after this swell in success, his son Juan was born.

In preparation for the 2018 election, Tomás went campaigning across the country, speaking particularly to men’s groups, parishes, and the faithful and receiving a massive swell in support from devout Catholics. Once the election cycle began, he took their platform public on the air-waves and spent his time campaigning to more general audiences. Despite who he was speaking to, Tomás refused to soften his message or pull punches, but aggressively confronted the problems that modernism has introduced to Brazilian society and mapping a way forward tied intrinsically with the common good. They won 60 seats in the Chamber of Deputies and 12 seats in the Federal Senate, making the CSM the third largest party in the Chamber and giving Tomás a huge bargaining chip in Jair Bolsonara’s new government. He spent this term guiding policy toward those programs which were best for the liberty and integrity of Brazilian society and tried his best to resist Bolsonaro when he was acting from a position of worldly considerations of practicality, especially on contraception and population control where he resisted Bolsonaro vehemently. As Covid-19 rocked the government and deplorable performance in the economy was occurring, Tomás knew he needed to do something more to help Brazil.

In 2022, Tomás Garcia Cardoso threw his hat in the ring to be the next President of Brazil, running against Bolsonaro and leftist darling Lula da Silva. As his popularity increased, two things became clear: he didn’t have enough support to win with Bolsonaro in the race and Bolsonara couldn’t win without him. When Tomás made it perfectly clear he had no intention of dropping out of the Presidential race, Bolsonaro dropped out and backed him. On 1 January, 2023, Tomás was sworn in as Brazil's 39th president.
Educational Record Tomás worked hard in school and achieved high marks in all of his classes through a dedication grounded in a love of learning and a desire to better his situation. He was an extremely intelligent young man, and though he was often mocked and bullied by the children around him, he continued to excel in his studies. As he neared graduation and was starting to consider what he might do with his life, he seriously pondered the real possibility of becoming a pastor. At the last minute, however, he decided to apply for the Naval School.
