Tim Doorson's ghost appearance and tombstone suggest his death was by electrocution. He possesses no traits and no set Lifetime Wish, though upon resurrection a player can assign him these options through the use of acquired Lifetime Rewards. His name, appearance and favorites suggest that the character is based on Jim Morrison of The Doors (an American rock band), who is buried in Père Lachaise Cemetery in France. He has the only Anglicized name of the Sims buried in Eastern Hills Cemetery.
Tim is the only Sim from Champs Les Sims to have gray eyes. Additionally, he and Aimée Lefebvre are the only two from the neighborhood to not have brown eyes.
He could have been from Dutch ancestry, because of his name.
