His parents are about as important as Hayate's: What they looked like and who they were is not relevant since they're dead. It can't tug our heartstrings since we don't have a bond with them, so introducing them only to kill them within a few pages won't add much. The little bits needed so show that he cared for the town he lived in were shown in chapter 5.

Thoma's loss of his hometown isn't written to make us cry, it's written to make us understand his motivation. And for that, we only need a global picture of things.
