Tholos was a member of the Andorian Imperial Guard serving under Commander Shran in the 2150s.

In 2151, Tholos was a member of the landing party led by Shran attempting to discover a hidden listening post at the Vulcan monastery of P'Jem. Their search coincided with the arrival of crew members from Enterprise NX-01, leading the Andorians to assume the Humans were working with the Vulcans. Tholos assisted Shran in interrogating Captain Archer, and threatened Sub-Commander T'Pol, who was being held captive along with the rest of the Vulcan inhabitants. Tholos was stunned by Lieutenant Reed in a firefight with a rescue team from Enterprise, a confrontation which eventually revealed the underground location of the spy station. (ENT: "The Andorian Incident")

Later that year, Tholos accompanied Shran to Coridan on a mission to assist the Enterprise crew in freeing Archer and T'Pol from a rebel faction which had taken them hostage. Their rescue attempt was interrupted, however, by a Vulcan commando force which initiated an assault on the rebel compound. (ENT: "Shadows of P'Jem")

Tholos was played by Steven Dennis.
In the first draft script of "The Andorian Incident" (which had the working title "Incident at P'Jem"), Tholos was described as "Shran's excitable major domo." In the final draft script for "The Andorian Incident", Tholos was referred to as Shran's first officer. In the script for "Shadows of P'Jem" (both the first draft and the final draft), Tholos was referred to as Shran's lieutenant.
In the first draft script of "Shadows of P'Jem", Tholos thought up the strategy of sending Commander Tucker and Lieutenant Reed into the Coridanite rebel compound first; he realized that would draw the rebels' weapons fire, making the Andorians less of a target. However, Tholos doesn't suggest this on-screen, merely saying about Tucker and Reed, "They could be useful."
