Tim Hunter was born on a deserted island in the Canadian wilderness. His
mother, Natalie Hunter, had followed his supposed father, Jeremy Hunter,
whom she thought was having an affair with Erica Kane.
Upon returning to Pine Valley, Natalie consented to a paternity test.
Only, Adam Chandler rigged the test to make sure it read that Jeremy was
Timmy's father. Adam was caught, forcing Natalie to have another test.
This one revealed the truth: Alex Hunter was Tim’s father, and Jeremy,
his brother. Jeremy bestowed his brother with a sizable part of their
father’s Estate, and began his relationship with Erica again.
1992: Natalie married detective Trevor Dillon. Trevor
adopted Timmy. Timmy also got a new little sister with the birth of Amanda
Dillon, Trevor and Timmy’s Aunt, Janet Green’s, daughter.
Timmy was devastated by the death of his mother. To cope with his loss,
Timmy began smoking marijuana. This was a gateway to even more potent
substances. Trevor found drugs, but Timmy told him they belonged to Jamal
Cudahy. Trevor was so overcome with grief, that he believed his story.
While on a LSD high, Timmy wandered into the middle of a street. Before
a car could collide in to him, Laurel Banning pushed him out of the way.
The incident caused Timmy to come to grips with his mother’s death
and his substance abuse.
1994: Timmy was devastated when his best friend and pet,
Harold the dog, went missing. Little did he know, Janet was responsible.
Janet was now going by the alias Jane Cox, Trevor’s new girlfriend.
Janet had poisoned Harold and sent him away. One the day of Trevor and
Janet’s wedding, Harold arrived and attacked the bride. Jackson
Montgomery arrived with proof of Jane’s true identity.
Trevor married Laurel Banning. It was no surprise to Timmy as Laurel had
become like a mother figure to him since Natalie’s death. Timmy
was especially fond of his new uncle, Michael Delaney. One time, Jamal
and Timmy were camping with Michael. Trevor came and told Timmy he had
to go home. Timmy did not know at the time, but Trevor disapproved of
Michael because he was homosexual.
1996: Timmy lost another mother figure when Laurel was
shot dead by a drunken sniper on the set of “The Cutting Edge.”
For a prank, Tim found pornographic photos of Laura English online and
distributed them at Pine Valley Hospital. This would instigate a full
investigation into the culprit behind the photos. Laura was a minor when
she was exploited into taking the photos. The person behind the photos
turned out to be Pine Valley’s new hero, Jim Thomasen.
Tim had his own problem at home when Trevor began dating Janet. Tim still
did not believe Janet had reformed like she claimed. Tim tried to turn
Amanda against her by telling Amanda about Janet’s past life as
the crowbar killer. Then, he smashed a pumpkin front of Janet’s
home with a crowbar. Tim fabricated a story, accusing Janet of locking
him in a meet locker. When Trevor caught Tim in his lies, he ran away
Two robbers mugged Tim. As he lay unconscious in an alleyway, Tim was
comforted by an apparition of his late mother, Natalie. Natalie told Tim
to forgive Janet and give her the second chance that she deserved. Tim
made it home on Christmas Eve, and began to see his aunt in a different
Trevor and Janet married early on in the year. But tragedy rocked Tim’s
world when Harold was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors could do nothing
to save him. Harold had been one of the only constant presences in Tim’s
life since Natalie’s death. After saying their final goodbyes, Harold
was put to sleep.
1999: Tim attended boarding school in Paris, France.
His parents visited once before Trevor was accused of the murder of Sophie,
Janet’s former cellmate. Tim was questioned about if he knew of
Trevor’s current whereabouts.
Trevor was exonerated for Sophie’s murder. All the Dillons moved
to Denver, Colorado for a fresh start.
2002: Tim came back to Pine Valley a hero. After a futile
nationwide search, Tim was a perfect liver match to Hayley’s son,
Tim settled back into life in Pine Valley. He began dating Maggie Stone.
But she only ever seemed interested when Bianca Montgomery came around.
Tim was unsure if Maggie had feelings for Bianca. Tim also reconnected
with JR Chandler. JR just lost his mother. Tim knew the feelings JR had
all to well.
Before leaving town, Tim let on that Janet was back to her old ways.
