    Thorne is the youngest son of Stephanie and Eric Forrester.

    Thorne had many tumultuous relationships with Macy, but they finally ended up not being together. Later, he married Brooke, but their marriage was doomed to failure. He found happiness with Darla Einstein and the two married.

    Thorne was made president of Forrester Creations, but upon Ridge's return, the presidency was transferred to Ridge. Enraged, Thorne left Forrester Creations and joined Spectra, taking some of Forrester's designs with him. However, Thorne decided that it wasn't fair to use Forrester's designs and began designing his own clothing lines, enhancing Spectra Couture's designs with his own. Thorne's parents had discouraged him earlier in life, telling him that Ridge was a better designer, and he hadn't made any since. This was a new life for him!

    Sally, however, had bet everything she had that Spectra would win the fashion show, but after they lost, Thorne not only lost his job, but lost the company as well.

    Stephanie, however, had discovered that she was the owner of Forrester Creations, and reinstated Thorne as the president of Forrester Creations.

    Thorne's happiness wouldn't continue, however. On his daughter, Ally's, 5th birthday, Darla's niece Phoebe had a flat tire and was stranded on the side of the road. Phoebe called her mother, Taylor, who was drunk, and asked for help. Taylor, thinking Phoebe was in trouble, jumped behind the wheel and drove to her aid, not knowing that Phoebe had also called Darla. Darla made it to Phoebe first and, as she was on the side of the road fixing the tire, was hit by Taylor. Afraid that Taylor would be in big trouble, Phoebe convinced her to not come forward with the truth about the accident. Darla died and a crushed Thorne sought comfort from his friend, Taylor, who eventually became his lover and then his fiance. He had no idea that the woman he loved was actually the woman who killed his wife. Taylor hid the truth from him as long as she possibly could, but eventually guilt overtook her and she came clean about the accident. Thorne was furious and called off the wedding, especially once it became clear that Ally did not want Taylor as a step-mom.

    One year after Darla's death Thorne found himself mired in a deep well of drug and alcohol problems, and horribly lonely. He ran into Donna Logan at a bar, however, and she quickly changed things around. The two became lovers and then engaged.

    It wasn't until Thorne & Donna's wedding day that Donna's sister Katie revealed to Thorne that Donna didn't love him and was only marrying him to get revenge on his mother, Stephanie, that Thorne came to his senses. He left Donna at the altar.

    After his failed wedding to Donna, he and Katie became friends. However, when Eric took up with Donna, Thorne teamed up with Felicia to break the two of them up. This of course strained Thorne’s newfound friendship with Katie.

    In his never ending quest to get Donna (who was now Eric's wife) out of his father’s life, Thorne helped Ridge and Felicia try and dig up dirt on the new Forrester Creations employee, Marcus, who Donna hired. They discovered Marcus was Donna’s son that she gave away for adoption many years ago, but instead of becoming angry, Eric welcomed Marcus into the fold.

    When Eric fell into a coma, Thorne sided with Ridge and agreed that they should take control of the company from Donna. That didn’t work out so well and while Eric recuperated at home, Thorne helped Stephanie keep Donna out of Eric’s life by banning her from the house. He then assisted his father in spying on Donna to find out if she was being faithful to Eric or cheating on him with Owen.

    Becoming tired of playing second-fiddle at Forrester Creations, Thorne is teaming up with Taylor and her kids to wrest control from Ridge and Brooke. Thorne told Taylor he's forgiven her for her role in Darla's death and they kissed.
