Timothy Harrison was originally a Terran citizen who was among the nine million colonists who settled on Safehold.

After awaking on Safehold on the Day of Creation, he could not remember his former life and thought of himself as an "Adam" created by God. He went to live in the town of Lakeview with his wife Sarah, and while he became the mayor of the town, they had a number of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, including Robert and Matthew Paul Harrison.
