Tim is a child with spiky dark green hair. He wears shorts and a shirt with a cross on it under a hood He also has a band-aid on the left side of his face.
Tim is very stuborn and does not like to listen to people shorter or younger then he is. Initially, he was hungry for vengeance, but with Train's help, realizes that revenge will not bring him satisfaction. He aspires to become a reporter who stands for truth and justice like his father once was.
Tim lived with his journalist father after his parents divorced when he was four years old.
Tim's father obtained evidence that a police officer named Bouldin was involved with illegal dealings with the mafia, Bouldin killed him and Tim took the evidence, becoming the corrupted police officer's next target as a result. Tim managed to evade the police's grasp, and vowed vengeance on Baldwin.
Tim, along with Leon Elliott and other orphans, formed a makeshift family to take care of each other. After Leon leaves, Tim becomes the unofficial leader of the group.
Tim meets Train Heartnet by falling on Train out of a tree. A group of men then appear and start shooting at him, but thanks to Train, they got away. Noticing Train's gun, Tim wants Train to kill Bouldin or at least teach him how to use one. Train, realising that Tim's story is just like his own, agrees to help Tim. Then, the police lead by Murdoch, Bouldin's right hand man, barge in. When Train beats them, he confronts Bouldin at the police station. Tim then appears and witnesses Train shooting Bouldin. Outside Tim becomes saddened thinking about his father and does not know why he feels "Horrible". Train tells Tim that he did not kill Bouldin, only stunned him with a paralysis paint bullet. After that, they take Tim to his grandmother's house and he tells them that he will be a news reporter just like his father.
Train and Eve run into a group of orphans who are being attacked by a group of men. They find out that the group wants the kids to leave so Train and Eve decided to help. When the men come back Train defeats them and they leave for good. Tim and the kids thank Train and Eve.
When the Apostles of the Stars are defeated, Leon Elliott goes back to the orphans but when Eden attacked, it captured Tim. After Eden is defeated Tim is brought back.
Afterwards Leon, Tim, Layla, and all the kids are working at a food restaurant and Leon and Tim talk about what they've been through to get there.
Tim wanted Train to help him get his revenge and was stubborn about it. Train agreed to help him, but not by killing the man who killed Tim's father, but by pretending to kill him so that Tim will understand that revenge brings nothing.
- In the anime Tim has a happy face on his shirt, while Leon has a frown face on his jacket.
