Head of Shipping & Manufacturing Personnel at Forrester Creations
Thorne grew up in the shadow of the Forrester family's favorite son, his elder half-brother Ridge. One day he finally becomes president of the clan's business, only to get demoted the second Ridge returns. Small wonder he once shot Ridge in the head.
But Thorne's not a bad guy. Yeah, he stole the company's designs when he joined archrival Spectra. But instead of using them, he ended up drawing upon his own design skills -- which his parents always discouraged, believing Ridge was more talented. (Y'know, Thorne's work did help bankrupt Spectra, so maybe father knew best after all.)
Thorne eventually found peace of mind with his fourth wife but turned to drugs and alcohol after her tragic death. He's since pulled himself together and rejoined the family business -- where he's back in Ridge's shadow.
