Character Background

Personal History Tim Rhodes was born to a career Marine NCO and his wife, who chose to focus on the family and home while also teaching piano, and, in spite of his mother's efforts to push him to follow his musical talents for a living, knew from an early age he wanted to follow in his father's footsteps and joined the Marines out of high school at age 17.

He met Janet Greco, the love of his life, at Parris Island, South Carolina after graduating boot camp. She was a waitress, looking for a better way of life, he was smitten by the dark haired beauty and looking for her to create a better life for him. She would give him three children before Janet filed for divorce after eighteen years of marriage.

He considers his family, save for Janet, his father, and his kids, a "collection of assholes and overachievers" and, as such, is estranged from them.
