Thomas Erbter was a young bully who caused Carrie White to discover her telekenetic powers.
Thomas, a five year old boy, was a resident of Chamberlain, Maine. He appeared when Carrie White walked home from school. While riding past Carrie on his bicycle on the opposite side of the street, he verbally abused her. Unaware that her telekinetic powers were re-awakened, Carrie looked at the boy with rage. As a result, he unexpectedly fell off, and the bicycle fell on top of him.
