Tom Natsworthy quotes from Mortal Engines

Tom Natsworthy is the main character, a fifteen-year old orphan of the Mortal Engines book and film series. 

In Mortal Engines, Tom is a third class apprentice in the Guild of Historians. 

While on duty he witnesses an attempted assassination which leads to his being  cast off from the city of London, where he meets Hester Shaw at which point his adventure really begins.

Writer Philip Reeve says the inspiration for Tom's name came from a map "I sort of collect interesting sounding words and save them up until I need a name for a character. ‘Natsworthy’ is a place on Dartmoor, just up the road from where I live".

As the books progress, Tom and Hester have a daughter named Wren.
