Neo - Matrix


Thomas A. Anderson was born on March 11, 1962 in Lower Downtown, Capital City, USA according to his criminal record seen in the film. His mother was Michelle McGahey and his father was John Anderson. He attended Central West Junior High and Owen Patterson High. In high school, he excelled at science, math and computer courses, and displayed an aptitude for English and History. Although he had disciplinary troubles when he was thirteen to fourteen years old, Anderson went on to become a respected member of the school community through his involvement in football and hockey.

Thomas Anderson is one of billions of humans neurally connected to the Matrix, unaware that the world he lives in is a virtual reality. In his legitimate activities, he is a quiet programmer for the “respectable software company” Metacortex; but he is also a computer hacker who penetrates computer systems illicitly and steals information under his hacker alias “Neo”. During his time as a hacker, Anderson has learned about something known only as “The Matrix“. It is described by Morpheus as a vague notion that Neo has felt his whole life that “there is something wrong with the world“.
