A Teutonic warrior born about 550 in Frisia, he first died in 590 attempting to rescue a woman from robbers.  His first teacher was the Immortal, Atli of Rhaetia, who showed him what he was, and how to survive in the Game. 

His life would take a marked change in the year AD 997, as he discovered he was one of the few Immortals ever chosen to face the demon Ahriman. Timothy survived the encounter, and staved off the demon's attempt to control the world, but walked away deeply shaken by the horrors shown him by the ancient evil.

Entering into a hermitage near Loch Bannoch, he would wait over 600 years until Duncan MacLeod, not yet three years Immortal, literally stumbled into his cave. Timothy was taken as a seer by MacLeod who was told of his past, his future meeting with Connor MacLeod, and that Duncan was to be his successor in the fight against Ahriman.

Yet Timothy knew that to properly prepare Duncan called for the ultimate sacrifice. He demnded that the young man take his head, MacLeod refused, so he forced a duel, and grabbing the blade of the horrified Highlander's sword, he cut off his own head in front of his visitor, and providing Duncan with his first Quickening.

PersonalityEdit

Little is known of his personality after defeating Ahriman, but what can be said is based off his closing chronicle by Watcher, Corum Wight.  Based on earlier texts of different languages, it is revealed that he was a noble liege and valiant hero.  He once had a family he cared for, but they all died.  It was hinted in his Chronicle by a priest of how Satan (Ahriman), afflicted him with demons and later went mad.  He later settled in Loch Bannoch, Scotland to await the next chosen one, Duncan MacLeod.  Wight's Chronicle also mentions of how the day after, he returned to the cave only to have collapsed in on itself.  Knowing his assignment for a long time, he concluded that Timothy of Gilliam could not have survived an Immortal battle at that stage of his life.

Fighting StyleEdit

Unfortunately, little is also known about how well he fought against other Immortals.  His fighting style can be seen against Duncan MacLeod.  The only flaw is that Timothy was giving Duncan the upper hand in the fight, cornering and preventing him from escaping the cave.

Miscellaneous InformationEdit

Timothy of Gilliam and Auberon both share the same birth year as 550 and almost the same cultural affiliation (with Auberon being Germanic); However, Auberon died five years (585) before Timothy when he fell from a tree and later found by Odolff.
