Timothy Tailor is the son of King Tailor, formerly known as the Valiant Little Tailor. He is owned by AlyssaTolensky.
Although technically a Royal, he prefers to assume the role as Rebel so as not to attract attention to himself via status. Confident in himself, at times he can be stubborn and persistant. However he's kind-hearted and loyal to his friends, using his sharp and clever wit to get himself out of sticky situations and assisting others.
Timothy is a very brave and bold when he wants to be. He can be very stubborn and never really realizing when to quit while he's ahead. He's loyal to his friends and is a very kind-hearted person.
He's very musical, displaying a habit of singing where ever he goes, getting lost in his own fantasy in his mind.
Although a prince, Timothy prefers to just wear comfortable casual clothes he enjoys making for himself. He'd rather not have all the attention on himself when he's not performing, nor does he want people to think he would ever use his royal status as a crutch to gain popularity, as quite a few other students tend to do.
"The Valiant Little Tailor"
Also known as "The Brave Little Tailor", it is a German fairytale collected by the Brothers Grimm.
A tailor is preparing to eat some jam, but when flies settle on it, he kills seven of them with one blow. He makes a belt describing the deed, "Seven at one blow". Inspired, he sets out into the world to seek his fortune. The tailor meets a Giant who assumes that "Seven at one blow" refers to seven men. The giant challenges the tailor. When the Giant squeezes water from a boulder, the tailor squeezes water (or whey) from cheese. The Giant throws a rock far into the air, and it eventually lands. The tailor counters the feat by releasing a bird that flies away; the Giant believes the small bird is a "rock" which is thrown so far that it never lands. The Giant asks the tailor to help carry a tree. The tailor directs the Giant to carry the trunk, while the tailor will carry the branches. Instead, the tailor climbs on, so the Giant carries him as well.
The Giant brings the tailor to the Giant's home, where other giants live as well. During the night, the Giant attempts to kill the man. However, the tailor, having found the bed too large, sleeps in the corner. On seeing him still alive, the other Giants flee, never to be seen again.
The tailor enters the royal service, but the other soldiers are afraid that he will lose his temper someday, and then seven of them might die with every blow. They tell the King that either the tailor leaves military service or they will. Afraid of being killed for sending him away, the king instead sends the tailor to defeat two Giants, offering him half his kingdom and his daughter's hand in marriage. By throwing rocks at the two Giants while they sleep, the tailor provokes the pair into fighting each other. The King then sends him after a unicorn, but the tailor traps it by standing before a tree, so that when the unicorn charges, he steps aside and it drives its horn into the trunk. The King subsequently sends him after awild boar, but the tailor traps it in a chapel.
With that, the King marries him to his daughter. His wife hears him talking in his sleep and realizes that he is merely a tailor. The King promises to have him carried off. A squire warns the tailor, who pretends to be asleep and calls out that he has done all these deeds and is not afraid of the men behind the door. Terrified, they leave, and the King does not try again.
