Timothy Terrel is an agent with the British Secret Service.
Described as "a dark, quite attractive sort of person in some ways, and in years could have been anything from an old thirty to a very young forty".
For the most part, Terrel is a quiet, unassuming man who, though in quite good health and shape, tends to move deliberately and calmly. Certainly when people are doing unfriendly acts like pointing guns at him, he can and does do whatever he must to remain alive. However, when not in immediate danger, he presents himself as a man prone to un-excitement.
As stated, Terrel works for the Secret Service of his country but he is far more likely to just state that he "works for the government". If pressed, he will admit to being an "intelligence officer" but he is reticent to be more descriptive. He is similarly closed-mouth about his name, or rather his real name; he is more likely to be using an alias than his true identity.
It is said of Terrel by different folk that he has a suspicious mind which is undoubtedly true and could well be caused by the fact that he is very prone to walking into a room and finding a dead body there. It certainly happens a fair amount of times.
It is a bit ironic then that it can be said of Terrel that he really does not care for the use of guns. That is not to say that he does not make use of them when the situation warrants but he is not the sort to be the first to draw and fire. More often than not he is likely to be content with standing with his hand in his pocket leading people to believe, as is stated in one event, that should his hand come out of that pocket, it would be holding something.
Most of the adventures that exists of Timothy Terrel are told from other people's viewpoints. It is not uncommon for the troubles, whatever they might be, to be well underway before Terrel makes his presence known. It is pretty obvious by the way he acts, he prefers it that way; his use of the shadows and the background is quite common.
