|Timothy of Gilliam|
A Teutonic warrior born in 550 in Frisia, He first died in 590 attempting to rescue a woman from robbers. His first teacher was Immortal Atli of Rhaetia, who showed him what he was and how to survive in the Game. Timothy lived the standard life of an Immortal: fighting to take heads and survive The Game. His life would take a marked change in the year 997 A.D., as he discovered he was one of the few Immortals chosen to face the demon Ahriman. Timothy survived the encounter, and staved off the demon's attempt, 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 prophecized Duncan's history to him: 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. Grabbing the blade of the horrified Highlander's sword, he pressed it to his throat, slicing off his own head in front of his visitor, and presenting Duncan with his first Quickening.
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 years later. 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. Corum Wight's Chronicle also mentions of how the day after, he returned to the cave only to have collpased in on itself. Knowing his assignment for a long time, he logically concluded that Timothy of Gilliam could not have survived an Immortal battle at that stage of his life.
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.

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.
