Before his death, Tim was wearing an astronaut suit minus the helmet. His skin was bluish in color and his hair was pinkish in color, which a lighter shade of pink from the middle to the end. He had five fingers, in contrast to the average four. He apparently considered himself to be quite handsome.
Tim was a heroic space ship captain who maintained his composure even in his final moments against the creature. He was also very vain, always complimenting his good looks or pointing them out to others. Even in his final log most of what he did was speak about his own good looks and he would often make his ship's computer compliment him.
